As teachers head back to the classroom for the 2018-19 school year, many are still wondering how they are going to get everything accomplished on their massive to do list. Standards? Technology Integration? Real life application? Engaging learning? How can students get the best of each of these while learning in a meaningful way?
Five-Star Technology Solutions is proud to announce that we are now a Midwestern-based Google Partner! Google has strict requirements that companies must meet before they can become partners. The year-long process involved observations, case studies to demonstrate our ability to help schools succeed with Google Tools, and the certification of our staff members. However, this process ensured that our efforts align with Google’s research-based standards and exams. We strongly believe this partnership will allow us to help school districts across the Midwest create even more awesome learning experiences for kids through the use of Google tools!
