The first tip of the hat for this academic year 2016-2017 goes off to all of you teachers at Kaohsiung American School. Your efforts to model digital age work and learning have been recognized today by Google. Thanks to you, Kaohsiung American School has been granted the status of Google Reference School! This is a close circle of institutions which include some of the most innovative schools in the world.
Kaohsiung American School fully deployed the Google Apps for Education suite to all its faculty and students in 2012 in order to enhance productivity and communication. Since then Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar to name just a few, have become indispensable tools on our campus. More recently a growing fleet of Chromebooks was deployed in the lower grades of the Elementary School to support our 1-to-1 environment. As soon as Google Classroom launched, it became a natural classroom management system for our teachers to adopt.
As a Google Reference School, Kaohsiung American School will be showcased internationally for its innovation and leadership. As a flagship school, we will be able to further connect with educators around the world by sharing our best practices.
