Delegates also heard from Guernsey educators at the summit. Les Beaucamps teachers said that they utilise modern technology in their lessons.

For example, through the use of virtual reality headsets, they can attract the attention of students. Furthermore they argued that Google Education applications ensure that students complete all of their homework.

The arrival of the Google Education Summit to the Island, has thrilled Andrea Dudley-Owen from the Committee for Education, Sport and Culture. 

While speaking before the event, she said:

“Significant effort and inroads have been made by Lucy Witham our Education Officer (Learning Through ICT). In ensuring that our children are benefiting from the use of technology and software applications in their everyday learning. Her efforts have almost certainly presented Guernsey with this fantastic opportunity and will put us on the global map as a digitally competent jurisdiction.”

Dudley-Owen went on to say that the event would not just benefit lecturers and teachers, but the community as a whole.

The event ran from May 19th to May 21st, with visitors winning prizes throughout the weekend.

At Ten Ten Systems, we have always believed that Google apps offer tremendous benefits to any classroom or learning environment. By engaging students through interaction and improving communication between teacher and student, the benefits are undeniable. We work with educational institutions throughout the UK. Ensuring that they are getting the most out of the very latest technology.
