Google Education Suite
At Quarry Hill Primary School students in Grade 3-6 will be provided with a Google Apps For Education account. This will enable students to have access to the Google Apps provided through our eduSTAR System.
In Grade 3/4 students will learn about working in a digital space, effective file management and begin to explore ways to work collaboratively online with their peers.
In Grade 5/6 students use Google Classroom as a basis for their digital learning. Google classroom is a free web-based platform that integrates the Google Apps for Education account with all of the Google Apps services provided. Google Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organised. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback to students.
