At St. Kevin’s College we have embraced the Google Suite in order to enhance the learning and teaching here at the college.
Teachers have received training in relation to a variety of elements found in the G Suite.
Pupils and staff are able to connect and collaborate effortlessly with one another by co-editing documents, spreadsheets and presentations in real time. Google Meet connects our pupils, classroom assistants and teachers to teach, support and learn from anywhere.
Google Classroom allows pupils and teachers and pupils to easily access and organise work, complete assignments, fill in forms and test knowledge using quizzes.
Training and Support
Teachers and Support Staff attended training with certified Google Trainer Jim Nelson in order to further develop their skills and knowledge of the G Suite and how best to utilise Google for Education tools. Staff have focused on developing their use of Google Meet, Sheets, Sites. Docs and Gmail. This training is another example of how the staff at St.Kevin’s College have focused on developing the skills and knowledge to help support our pupils by utilising technology. Well done to all who took part in this professional development.

Training has been provided to our pupils by their form teachers at the beginning of the academic year.
