The use of G Suite and Chromebooks positively impacted teaching and learning in my class I can see a clear way to use G Suite and Chromebooks in the delivery of the phenomenon-based learning

I have seen G Suite and Chromebooks “remove" obstacles to using technology in my classroom

The feedback received from the pilot schools indicated one of the best results of the pilot we have done. The pupils clearly advanced their team-working, collaboration, and digital skills during the pilot. Schools said using Chromebooks and G Suite was natural, easy, and fun.

The key success factor and goal was to equip the teachers with the skills and ideas to comfortably and creatively use the Google tools and technology in the classroom. The four key factors shaped the pilot’s professional development (PD) were:

Finnish Curriculum

Professional Development Effort

All five PD modules mapped to the key-elements of Finnish National Core Curriculum and student-centred pedagogy

Built for the Audience

PD modules were broken into two tracks for Primary and Secondary teachers so content could be tailored to specific classroom needs and goals.

Delivery Method

All PD sessions consisted of hands-on activities and tangible ways to utilise Google tools in the classroom. There was absolutely no tool-based training.

68+ hours

Total training provided to Pilot teachers, including the Pilot Kickoff and scheduled PD sessions


Five 3-hour pedagogical sessions for primary and secondary teachers


Success Stories

Teachers had access to a shared Google Doc posted on our Pilot Site where they were encouraged to add their classroom use-cases and success stories using technology in the classroom. Contributors were recognised in PD sessions and via Monthly Pilot Reports that were submitted to the FNBE.

Ten 2-hour “Office Hour” sessions to address open questions and share best practices
