    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
