ACT Public Schools Go Google

 

In 2015 the ACT government announced that state schools would move to the G Suite for Education platform. The Dialog Google Solutions Practice supported almost 60 of the ACT's public schools, with their adoption of the suite including; Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides and email across more than 23,000 students and teachers.

IT in the classroom across the ACT’s state school system has been vastly simplified and students have been provided the opportunity for collaboration, between both other students and teachers. This has not only been offered through the implementation of the G Suite platform but also by the switch to cloud-enabled Chromebooks. 

Since the recent successful completion of this project, our secondary students are among the best connected in the country… From a technical perspective, we couldn’t be happier with the way our Google Apps environment has been configured. The combination of [subject matter experts] within our own identity access management systems, and the expertise of Dialog IT in the Google Apps environment, were key to the overall success of the project." 

~ Dan Bray, Program Manager for ACT Education
