2019 Google Bootcamps

Are you a teacher in a Stirling Council school? Are you interested in becoming a Google Certified Educator? Are you already certified at Level 1 and looking to progress to Level 2?

This year we are hosting two Google Bootcamps to allow staff to become Google Certified Educators at both Level 1 and Level 2.

Dates and venues:

Thursday 21 March and Friday 22 March (Bannockburn High School)
Thursday 16 May and Friday 17 May (Dunblane High School)

Staff wishing to sign up must have permission from their Head Teacher to be out of school and must attend both days of the course.

Chromebooks and G Suite

As many staff will know, and some parents and carers may have seen in the local media, from August 2018 all S1 pupils in Stirling Council secondary schools will be issued with 1:1 Google Chromebooks. This is part of our Stirling Digital Learning strategy.

For more information, see our new pages:

Chromebooks Risk Assessment

We will be adding more information specifically for teachers in due course, but for now check our our previous G Suite posts for some hints and tips!

Introducing G-Suite

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed two new Glow tiles appearing on your school’s Launchpad recently.

These allow all staff and pupils in Stirling primary and secondary schools access to Google’s suite of educational apps. If you click on one of these tiles, or alternatively go to the regular Google Drive page,  you can log in using your normal Glow username, but with @stirlingschools.net on the end.

For example:

burnsr01s@stirlingschools.net

…using your regular Glow password. If you sign on through Glow, you will only need to do this once, and your Google login will then be linked to your Glow account.

More information and training about these tools will follow, but for a taster have a look at Google’s own information about Classroom and G-Suite for Education.
