A study by Evergreen Education Group on the use of Chromebooks and G Suite for Education found that when technology was combined with four key factors -- planning, professional learning, patience and support -- the result was improved student achievement and enhanced student and teacher engagement. The study was commissioned by Google.
Linda Darling-Hammond, Professor of Education at the Stanford Graduate School of Education and President and CEO of the Learning Policy Institute, along with school administrators will be discussing the study at Education On Air, Google’s free, online conference happening December 3, 2016. Open to anyone worldwide, participants can share and learn from educators, hear from inspiring speakers, and get tips and tools to help boost student engagement, collaboration and productivity in the classroom.
