They say.

The Google UK Schools Site offers free resources for teachers to help use Google tools in the classroom.

Working with teachers, we have developed ideas for how Google Search, Maps, Earth, Images and News can be integrated into the curriculum to help bring subjects such as geography, history and citizenship to life.

Google UK for Schools contains a wealth of ideas and resources and if it is like anything else that Google do will continue to develop into a huge resource. The resources are currently based around geography, history and citizenship (with no real emphasis on the safety aspects, however, over time we expect the safety aspect to develop) including:

  • Lesson plans
  • activity sheets
  • discussion groups
  • Google Earth
  • Google tools
  • Tutorials (for students on how to search well)
  • gadgets for teachers
  • and links to other Google projects for schools

    The results are collated over an agreed timescale and then the information is sent on to the promoter.

    Demonstration – Safety Scene Evaluation Feedback Form

    This is a demonstration of the Safety Scene evaluation/feedback system. There are three separate areas, however, more can be incorporated, if required.

  • Teachers – For teachers to evaluate the activities and also to evaluate how well the various messages impacted on the children, using pre and post evaluation.
  • Children – For the children to indicate how well they felt the visit went
  • Partners – For partners to feedback to Safety Scene the quality of service/activities and how successful or other wise they felt the activities were
  • Each evaluation criteria is fully customisable i.e. the promoter can stipulate the exact criteria that they wish to evaluate or use the Safety Scene pre configured questions. The answers can be single selection or multi selection.

    [poll id=”1″]
    [poll id=”2″]
    [poll id=”7″]

    The evaluation will be available online for an agreed period after which the data will be collated and forwarded to the promoter for evaluation.
