How May We “G Suite” Help You?
Do you use G Suite Tools for Education (Formerly Google Apps for Education or GAFE for short)? Are you a connected educator on Twitter? (And if you are not, then why not? But that is another conversation to have later.) Have you ever had a question about the G Suite Tools and so you Tweet it out only for it to get lost in the abyss of Twitter and never get a response? Or if you do get a response, it is completely random and really doesn’t help?Well, we hope this will be a solution to that dilemma. We would like to introduce to the newly updated Twitter account, @GSuiteEDUhelp.
Eight G Suite using educators connected on Twitter and have teamed up to manage this new handle. Our goal is to be a resource to other G Suite using teachers and help provide a quick and reliable answer to any type of G Suite related question you may need help with.
We don’t see ourselves as experts, but just a group knowledgeable teachers wanting to help provide answers to your questions. If we don’t know an answer, we will try to help you research a solution and provide resources to help you get going in the right direction.
If you need help with G Suite Tools for Education, just tweet us @GSuiteEDUhelp. So, How may we GSuiteEDUhelp you?
