The Google G Suite (formerly Google Apps) is completely FREE to schools, colleges and universities:
How can using G Suite contribute to your well-being? G Suite can:
Reduce paperwork by assessing learners' work digitally
Create a dialogue with learners
Create a Google Classroom online where assignments can be uploaded, deadlines automatically saved in public Google calendar and marks recorded
Save your comments automatically in Google Sheets
Create a simple Google Site for your own class
Motivate and engage your learners
This is what G Suite includes:
Google Drive - unlimited storage. Documents/Images etc in edit form or completed can be automatically saved.
Google Sheets - intuitive. No formulae needed. Can accept data automatically entered into a Google Form.
Google Form: Can be embedded on a website for surveys, questionnaires etc.
Google Slides: Google version of PPT.
YouTube: Instructional Videos.
Hangouts: Online meetings and live messaging.
Google Docs: Can be used so that several people can collaborate on a document. Word docs can be uploaded and converted to Google Docs.
Also ChromeBooks - basically a small notebook which is connected to the internet and integrated fully with G Suite. Around £299. Advantage is that nothing is saved on the notebook itself so when a learner logs out using their Google account, the next learner is able to use a ‘clean’ machine. Very reliable. Software automatically updated when connected to the internet.
My advice would be start small - with one class and use G Suite in parallel with current schools systems and gradually do more with G Suite. You will then be able to show other teachers what you can do and encourage others to use it.
