Texthelp Announces Teach for Google and Joins Google for Education Program

Texthelp, a leader in language and literacy support software, is pleased to announce Teach for Google, the first comprehensive professional development solution that helps educators increase student achievement using proven tools and strategies within the Google Apps for Education (GAFE) environment.

Texthelp is also announcing it is now a Google for Education Partner.

 Teach for Google

Created from research by top US education experts, Teach for Google offers a fast-growing library of short, easy-to-implement courses with “How-To” videos, strategy overviews, templates, checklists and more that provide all the tools necessary to successfully implement effective strategies in the classroom. Each course is designed with the everyday classroom in mind and based on evidence from research literature.

Prior to rolling out Teach for Google, Texthelp polled over 650 educators on what their two biggest needs are when it comes to effectively integrating Google Apps for Education in the classroom. Over 60% of respondents were looking for strategies and ideas they can immediately implement and short videos explaining specific features.

“Students achieve best when technology is combined with effective instructional practices, said Jason Gibson, learning and behavior consultant. “Where most professional development solutions focus on how to operate a technology, Teach for Google equips you with the effective instructional strategies to deliver through GAFE that will make a powerful impact.”

Educators can earn a certificate of completion for each course they complete and those who complete their 1st, 5th, 10th, and 20th course on Teach for Google can also earn badges to display on social media.  Each course is focused on teaching strategies that can be used multiple times in multiple content areas and grade levels to increase engagement and achievement in the classroom.

Google for Education

Texthelp is also announcing  it is now a Google for Education Partner. As a  member of Google’s new Global Partner Program, Texthelp is recognized as a company that excels in creating support technologies that integrate seamlessly with Google Apps for Education.

Texthelp is the first Assistive Technology provider to be confirmed as a Google Partner and currently has over 1.5 million educators and students using its Google Apps for Education (GAFE) extensions in the classroom. Read&Write for Google™, ideal for schools and colleges using GAFE, is the most popular and fastest-growing assistive learning product in Texthelp’s history.

“With millions of users around the Globe using Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and growing, Texthelp is thrilled to be Google’s special education partner.  We’re looking forward to working more closely together with Google to help all kids unlock their potential and be confident with reading and writing anytime, anywhere,” said Mark McCusker, CEO of Texthelp.  

Educators can try Teach for Google for free today. For more information about Texthelp’s GAFE products, visit the Chrome store.
