Young People at Charleston Academy are being actively encouraged by their teachers to use Google Apps for Education. These apps are already being used on the 100 iPads we have in school. From 2017 young people will also be able to use these on the one-to-one Chromebook devices as this service begins to be rolled out across the council. At assemblies next week young people will be given more information about GAFE. Tomorrow (Wednesday) all S1-S3 students will receive this letter seeking consent for GAFE use in school. The letter also contains links to more information about GAFE.
Additionally, please see this website for information about Google Apps for Education.
For more information about the way we are now using iPads in Charleston Academy please see Apple’s Education microsite.
