Google today released what it calls “a guide to activating technology in schools” as part of its education efforts. Intended to assist teachers and IT administrators, Google says the new guide based on what other schools processes provides schools with the following frameworks to bring the web into the classroom.

The guide is organized by a “5-step approach to deploying a digital education solution”:

  • Defining your goals
  • Investing in Internet access
  • Building your team
  • Offering web tools
  • Managing the change

Google says its education guide for schools is currently available in 10 languages and includes stories of how other schools have integrated Google Apps for Education, Google Sites, and more. The guide is rich with case studies, videos, product recommendations, organizational instructions, and much more.

Educators looking to integrate Google’s technologies into the classroom can review the newly published guide here and read more from Google for Education’s announcement here.

Notably, Google recently made headlines when it was reported that the company sold more Chromebooks to schools in the United States than Apple did iPads during Q3 2014.
