CloudShare Pilot Schools

posted 16 May 2012, 01:07 by Greg Basford
10 schools will embark on the use of CloudShare, Google Apps for Sydney Catholic Schools, as part of a pilot project to implement the move to our new virtual learning environment. The Schools are:

St Martha’s, Strathfield

St John Bosco Primary, Engadine
Wed 23/5 & Thu 24/5

Each school will send a group of "Google Guides" to a CloudShare Bootcamp: 2 days of immersion in the CloudShare VLE. These Google Guides will be asked to:

  1. Lead the adoption of CloudShare in their school by using Google Apps as their email, calendar, contacts and virtual learning environment, both for personal productivity and in their classroom.
  2. Be the in-school reference person for questions around usage of CloudShare in the classroom.
  3. Mentor other staff in the use of CloudShare.
  4. If applicable, transfer their own Myclasses resources over to CloudShare.
  5. Be willing to share experiences (e.g. success stories or challenges) with the wider Catholic Schools community.

The CloudShare Bootcamps kick off with the 3 Southern Region schools on Wed 23rd & Thu 24th of May. We're all looking forward to helping these schools dive in to this exciting new world of Google Apps.
