Google Workspace for Education

Googles suite of tools that can help you increase opportunities for critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity, all while supporting the learning objectives that you have for your students

Whether your school already uses Google Workspace for Education or you’re thinking about using them, managing them is included as part of the Salamander Integration Suite product. Access and groups are based on the way your management system is set-up and how your school uses, or wants to use, Google Workspace for Education, from email to whole-school online learning. The set-up is completely flexible and we work closely with you to understand your needs.

Key features

  • Direct links with your management system ensure Google Workspace for Education is always up-to-date with the correct users, groups and permissions. This can be in conjunction with Google Cloud Directory Sync (GCDS) or entirely by Salamander.
  • Choose to set user or group properties in Google, even those not supported by GADS, such as who can view group members.
  • Complete mail and other attributes required for Google Cloud Directory Sync. Giving users immediate access to their mailbox as soon as their Active Directory account is created and GCDS has run.
  • Import user photographs into G Suite for Education.
  • Reflect any calendar from the management system into Google Calendars and combine calendars such as teacher timetables with cover and pupil timetables with exam times.
  • Add events to a main calendar or into a calendar defined by you.
  • Configurable event information, for example for teachers, events display as the name of the teaching group and pupils see the subject name.
  • Automatically create and maintain your Google Classrooms directly from your management system. If you’re not ready for full-school roll-out, we can start with a subset of the school.
  • Create individual class sites based on the information from your management system.
