European institution plays host to Google Apps for Education summit

Google AppsThe International School of Prague is hosting this year’s Google Apps for Education summit that takes place later this month over two days – 12th and 13th October.

Google Apps for Education is now very popular with educational establishments across Europe and the USA.  Increasing numbers of primary, secondary and tertiary schools and colleges are now making use of the cloud-based technologies available.

As such, the purpose of the meeting is to further the knowledge of educators and administrators plus dedicated IT specialists.

This includes offering all attendees the chance to try out Google’s latest innovations such as Google Chromebook.  The latter hasn’t gone down as well as the company had hoped.  However, by showing those attending the summit what the netbook can offer schools and other educational establishments, it might encourage them to start using the device.

This year’s event will also play host to Google AppsCare – a subsidiary of Google.  Speaking with digitaljournal.com, Chloe Stubbins, the Head of Education, said: “Schools and universities are already very switched on to the benefits Google Apps can bring to students and teachers alike.”

She added: “However, without support and advice before, during and after the migration process, educational establishments are unlikely to realise the full potential Google Apps can bring.”

Stubbins also pointed out that Google works hard at maintaining its reputation as a world leader in what it does for education.

She said: “…We are looking forward to showcasing our work in Education at the Google Apps for Education European Summit.”
