Google in Education – Why it Works!
An overview of the use of G Suite for Education, looking at the common tools that Google offers teachers and then going on to explore the Googleverse.
We will look at how Google can enhance creativity and critical thinking, as well as helping with more mundane educational tasks.
After leaving Sacred Heart College in Johannesburg in 1992 Anthony studied teaching at JCE, now Wits. He worked in England for 5 years before returning to Johannesburg in 2006. After two years in recruitment he moved back into teaching and is now at Dainfern College in Johannesburg. As Director of Technology at Dainfern, Anthony has had the opportunity to run a BYOD programme over the past six years. He is a firm believer in the opportunities that technology provides teachers in terms of personal development and classroom opportunities, as well as the option to save time.
As an Apple Education Trainer with Leadership focus, a Google Education Group Leader and Google Education Trainer – he is always looking for ways to use Google and Apple in the classroom. He teaches ICT, at Dainfern College and uses Google Apps extensively in these lessons. Dainfern College also uses GAFE to manage all email, calendar and facilities for the school.
He loves to play with new ideas for using tech in teaching and is constantly looking for better ways to engage students in the learning process, while still making them effective digital and global citizens. Recently Anthony has been trying to develop a paperless classroom model that works in the South African context of high internet costs and low bandwidth, as well as power constraints.
Anthony is married to Monique and has two daughters, Riley and Regan.
