CALGARY, Canada – June 23, 2019 – SMART Technologies, a global leader in interactive display technology, announced today it is now a Google for Education Partner. SMART’s flagship SMART Learning Suite (SLS) software, used by over 25 million users globally, now offers seamless integration with G Suite for Education so teachers can create, deliver and share their lessons directly from Google Drive and Google Classroom.
The integration also enables teachers to quickly and easily add collaborative workspaces, assessments and game-based activities to their existing Google Slides, Docs and Sheets by importing them into SLS Online directly from Google Drive. And because SLS Online includes student access, teachers can share full lessons so they can continue working on projects at home. By providing a seamless experience for web-enabled devices such as Chromebooks, teachers and students can use the online workflows they already know and use.
“For today’s teachers, the challenge to meet the needs of every learner in compressed timelines is a daily occurrence,” said Jeff Lowe, SMART Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “No other solution can offer the combined value of transforming static content into interactive lessons through proven storage, rostering and workflow platforms. This combination helps save valuable learning time while also maximizing the power and return of existing technology investments.”
At ISTE 2019 in Philadelphia, visitors can visit the SMART booth #2400 to hear directly from current Google users and SMART Exemplary Educators about the integration tools within SMART Learning Suite. Demonstrations and peer-to-peer learning sessions will take place throughout the ISTE conference. For visitors not attending ISTE, go to smarttech.com/GsuiteVideo to see the integration in action.
