5 false myths about Google for Education
Are you considering implementing Google for Education in your school? Before you make a decision, let’s debunk some common myths surrounding this powerful educational platform.
Google for Education is only for large and wealthy schools.
Google for Education is designed to be accessible and useful for schools of all sizes and budgets. Many of the tools and services, such as Google Classroom, Google Docs, and Google Drive, are free to use. Additionally, Google offers special programs for schools with limited resources.
Google for Education is not secure for student privacy.
Security and privacy are top priorities for Google. Google for Education complies with privacy laws, like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and provides schools with tools to manage and control student data. Your students’ privacy is protected.
Google for Education requires a constant internet connection.
While some features work best with a stable internet connection, Google for Education offers offline options. Students and educators can create and edit Google documents offline, and they will automatically sync when an internet connection is available.
Google for Education only focuses on productivity tools.
