St. Columba Anglican School uses Google Apps for Education and Google Classroom to help students teach each other

We’re always working to overcome the tyranny of distance – collaborative technology helps to keep us connected to the rest of the world.

Matt Richards, Director of e-Learning and Educational Technology

Challenge

St. Columba Anglican School is out to prove that being geographically remote doesn’t prevent its students from becoming leaders. After the school implemented a "Bring Your Own Device" programme, the IT staff needed an easy, uniform way to connect all of the students.

Solution

Google Apps for Education allowed all students and teachers to access the same content, regardless of the device used. Google Classroom helped teachers to save time by making it easier to create assignments using Google Apps, such as Docs.
