Google G-Suite for Education
Teachers need access to the right tools to help deliver the best education. As school IT specialists, Soft Egg have partnered up with Google to make sure every resource you and your students need is available, on-demand, so you can teach wherever you are and with any device from any location.
Assigning Work with Google Classroom
Google for Education, otherwise known as G Suite for Education, provides a central hub for learning. Set tasks for the whole class or for groups of pupils (to differentiate learning) by attaching resources like worksheets or YouTube videos.
Staff and pupils can log in on a computer, tablet or mobile device (using the Google Classroom app).
Pupils complete tasks in Google Classroom using tools like Google Docs and Google Sheets.

Communicate with your staff
Video-call up to 250* staff members at once in your web browser or on the Google Meet app. Your device will need at least a microphone to do this (and a camera if you want to show video). Give presentations remotely by sharing your screen.
Send private messages to staff members in your web browser or on the mobile app. You can also make group conversations with multiple staff members.
Create a class and invite your teachers to it to make a virtual staff room. Send them updates using the 'Stream' (it looks a bit like a social media timeline/feed).
Communicate with your pupils
Make announcements to a class, groups of pupils, or the whole school. These appear in the 'Stream' section.
Give pupils feedback on tasks they've completed. Comments appear in real-time, so pupils can see your marking before you hand work back to them.
Video or voice-call pupils - you can do this within Classroom.
