Brooklyn Prospect Charter students tackle global issues in the classroom with Google for Education tools

Students are excited by technology. It motivates them to go above and beyond to find really creative ways to use G Suite in their projects.

Brooklyn Prospect Charter needed a way to give its socially conscious student body access to the Internet and the cloud to research and collaborate on global issues. The technology-forward school has a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program to allow high school students and staff choose the devices that work best for them. Because of this, they were looking for a technology solution that worked across devices. The faculty also wanted to provide teachers with more professional development resources.


Brooklyn Prospect Charter schools launched G Suite for Education, Chromebooks and Google Classroom for all students and teachers. “We had strong faculty buy-in. Teachers and staff have been using Gmail since day one and actively use G Suite for Education to share information and collaborate,” says Tyra Frederick, educational technology instructor and high school English teacher at Brooklyn Prospect Charter.
