When forward-thinking Scottish independent school, Glenalmond College, needed to update their IT set up, they decided to ‘Go Google’ in both the classroom and in the back office.

Introducing Gmail and G Suite for Education for all administrative staff and teachers provided a flexible and collaborative working environment that allowed teachers to share resources and best practice. With some on-site training from Google Cloud Partner Refractiv, the Glenalmond staff have adopted all the G Suite tools, including Drive, and have expanded their use of Google Classroom as a virtual learning environment. Combining the two has created a fast and simple way to engage students in collaborative learning both at school and at home.

The decision to adopt Google as our main platform has been a game changer in terms of our teaching and learning: pupils are able to work more collaboratively with each other and with staff, and pupils are encouraged to take greater responsibility for their own learning and development.
