What is a Chromebook? What is G Suite?
Currently the students use the devices at school only. We are studying the need for allowing the devices to go home in the future. Students can access everything they do at school from a computer at home. They just need to use their login information on google.com and sign in.
What are the benefits of using educational technology?
The driving question is: How can educational technology be better than the traditional approach? Google certified teacher, Mrs. Nicole Erwin, explained, “When students are more engaged, when they can collaborate easily with peers, when they can get immediate feedback on their work, have their individual academic needs met and they can express learning in new ways, then we can say that we are getting the most out of the technology experience.”
Privacy and Security
From Google: Two of the most common questions regarding Google in general, and G Suite specifically, are security and privacy. We take both topics very seriously and truly believe that our offerings are a great option for customers on both fronts.Our business is built on our users’ trust: trust in our ability to properly secure their data and our commitment to respect the privacy of the information they place in our systems by not giving that information to others or using it inappropriately.
An additional FAQ page regarding Security and Privacy can be found at support.google.com where you can find more information. Also, please see the Google Security & Privacy page.
