Stone Group - Providing digital transformation solutions to organisations across the UK.

It’s no secret that after several years of uncertainty, the face of education in the UK has changed dramatically. The way we teach, learn and collaborate have all evolved and become more greatly intertwined into the digital age. As educators and parents continue to help our students learn through hybrid forms of education, it’s important to understand the learning tools and devices that can help them succeed. A student’s school experience has a profound impact on their future, that’s why Google for Education shareable devices and collaborative tools help teachers prepare all students with new, more engaging ways to learn the skills they need to succeed.

Tools for collaboration, communication and creativity are perhaps the first though of anybody looking at their hybrid learning strategy. Google for Education gives teachers the freedom to spend more time personalising the learning experience, and less time managing it. Students can learn 21st-century problem-solving and the skills they’ll use in their future careers, with accessibility features that help every student do their best work. When students have the tools that they need and understand how to use them, they build confidence and develop learning strategies that can help them for the rest of their lives. Features such as visual aids, closed captioning, and real-time collaboration in Google Workspace help overcome barriers to learning for all students, whether they have a lifelong or temporary disability, or learn best under specific conditions.
