I am a huge fan of G Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education) after many years as a staunch Microsoft Office user. No, it doesn’t mean I have left the Microsoft offerings behind completely but I am finding more and more I am looking to Google Drive solutions first.
G Suite makes technology so much more accessible by
doing away with the need for software licenses and heavy duty hardware. It also makes available powerful collaboration tools and makes sharing so easy. My perspective is education, particularly adult and secondary, but many of the ideas can be embraced in other environments, too.
Google Apps can help facilitate both differentiation and efficiency. Sure, there are limitations but Google are constantly evolving the platform. I’ll be honest, there are still times I turn to Microsoft PowerPoint in particular but I am constantly surprised at how much can be accomplished within the Googleverse.
Here I hope to bring together practical tips and ideas, both my own and from others, to help you along with your Google Apps journey.
