By Dennis de Weerd | April 14, 2020

At the latest estimates, over 70 million students and education staff use G Suite for education worldwide. It’s clear that G Suite is a significant player in the future of education. With this in mind, we are thrilled to announce that we have achieved the status of Google Education Partner.

Google for education

With this partnership, Incentro is committed to strengthening the integration with Google for Education products focused on the impact in the classroom. The goal is to empower the millions of educators and students that are already using Google for Education. How, you’re wondering? Google’s innovative range of tools means we are helping many schools migrate to the impressive G Suite products and chrome devices. On top of this, we are providing deployment, training, and support for the schools to make sure they are really getting the most out of their subscriptions.

So, why use G Suite?

G Suite includes Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms, Sites, Drawings, and more. This means that in one subscription you cover word processing, presentations, spreadsheets, and even creating quizzes or websites. You’ll also be able to access YouTube, Blogger, and more, all linked to your Google account. What more do you need? gsuite-for-education

Cloud-based working and collaboration

Another benefit of G Suite for educators is the collaborative methods it employs. It’s easy to work simultaneously on a document while seeing each others’ cursors and changes. The autosave function makes sure that there is always a back-up of your masterpiece. So it’s no problem when you forget to save your document, and you can always go through the previous revisions to easily revert should a student change their mind.

Google Classroom

Google Classroom has been designed with teachers in mind. It grants teachers the ability to create announcements, ask questions, and even assign work. This can be marked and returned to the students quickly and easily. You can decide whether pupils work on a single document together, can only view your document, or have a named copy created on both their own and your drive. A great solution for teachers who are fed up with receiving unnamed homework! google classroom

Chrome Devices

We are able to provide and support Google Chromebooks to learning institutions offering a simple, secure, and affordable device built for the learners’ needs.

Teachers can have the confidence that they can walk into a classroom and just teach. With a battery life that will last for the school day and the ability to boot up in under 8 seconds, Google devices take the stress out of technology in the classroom. See our range of chrome devices here for more information.

Need some guidance?

We are happy to help you with the implementation of this powerful set of tools.
