  • Bringing Digital Content to Students Where They “Live”

    Students today are digital natives and undisputed power users of Google.  Most are never far from their mobile devices, and they use them to look up everything from food ingredients to music lyrics.  But they also use them for completing school assignments.  The key to connecting them to trustworthy, relevant content is ensuring that it appears in their workflow.  Google is a comfortable, highly used pathway in most students’ study routine.

    According to Business Insider, more than 40 million students, teachers, and administrators use Google Apps for Education, and that number is growing.  As Richard Culatta, Director, Office of Educational Technology, U.S. Department of Education, notes, “The demand for high-quality educational apps is increasing as communities become more connected, devices become more affordable, and teachers and parents are looking for new ways to use technology to engage students.”

    As a certified Google for Education partner, Gale uses the most current and popular Google tools within our digital content to support students as they develop key study and organizational skills.  By integrating Google Apps for Education, which encompasses Gmail, Classroom, Drive, Docs, and more, Gale helps educators improve student engagement, encourage collaboration, and foster critical thinking.  Gale digital content integrates with Google in five exciting ways for select content sets:
