We’re getting our bags packed tonight at TA Scotland as we get organised for the Google Reference School event at Duncanrig Secondary School in South Lanarkshire. A few of the team will be supporting the event tomorrow and we can’t wait to hear from the staff and students at the school as they share their journey to becoming a Google Reference School.
Ian and Karen reunited
Kicking off the day we’ll have a keynote from Google for Education Innovator, Coach and Trainer, Ian Vosser and then we’ll hear from Karen Macleod from South Lanarkshire Council. It’ll be great to see these two back together on the same stage once again and we’re excited to see them both set us up for an awesome day. Karen and Ian worked closely together for a number of years and both have played a huge part in the digital transformation journey of South Lanarkshire’s schools.
Learners and teachers give us stories of impact
Getting to see Chromebooks and Google Workspace for Education in action is always helpful for educators but to hear direct stories of impact from learners and teachers is powerful for all of us. Tomorrow’s event will offer lots of opportunities to get new ideas and see what’s worked best for this Scottish Google Reference School as they undertake a digital transformation journey with Chromebooks and Google Workspace for Education.
