Wel­come to our lat­est blog post, where we high­light the use of Google Suites with QOMO Inter­ac­tive Dis­plays. As edu­ca­tors and tech­nol­o­gy coor­di­na­tors, you’re con­stant­ly look­ing for tools that not only enhance the learn­ing expe­ri­ence but also sim­pli­fy your teach­ing process­es. Google Suites has been a preva­lent tool in this regard, offer­ing a range of appli­ca­tions that fos­ter col­lab­o­ra­tion, cre­ativ­i­ty, and effi­cien­cy in the classroom.

Background on Google Suites

Google Suite, also known as G Suite for Edu­ca­tion, offers a vari­ety of apps with spe­cif­ic ben­e­fits for the edu­ca­tion­al sec­tor. Google Suites has become a favorite in edu­ca­tion due to its flex­i­bil­i­ty in allow­ing mul­ti­ple peo­ple to con­tribute and edit files in live time. It is also easy to dis­trib­ute, present, and gath­er con­tent with a group of peo­ple. Here’s a sum­ma­ry of each app and how it enhances the edu­ca­tion­al experience:

  1. Google Docs: This word proces­sor allows stu­dents and teach­ers to cre­ate and edit doc­u­ments online. It sup­ports real-time col­lab­o­ra­tion, mak­ing it per­fect for group projects and peer reviews. The com­ment­ing and sug­ges­tion fea­tures facil­i­tate feed­back and inter­ac­tion between stu­dents and educators.
  2. Google Sheets: This spread­sheet appli­ca­tion is great for math and sci­ence class­es, where data analy­sis and visu­al­iza­tion are key. Stu­dents can learn about data man­age­ment, cre­ate charts, and work col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly on data-dri­ven projects. It also helps in orga­niz­ing grades, atten­dance, and oth­er admin­is­tra­tive tasks.
  3. Google Slides: A pre­sen­ta­tion tool that’s user-friend­ly and ver­sa­tile. It’s great for cre­at­ing inter­ac­tive pre­sen­ta­tions and encour­ages stu­dent cre­ativ­i­ty. Like Docs, it sup­ports real-time col­lab­o­ra­tion and is ide­al for group assign­ments and dig­i­tal storytelling.
  4. Google Forms: This tool is used for cre­at­ing sur­veys, quizzes, and feed­back forms. It’s ben­e­fi­cial for con­duct­ing assess­ments, gath­er­ing data, and receiv­ing feed­back from stu­dents and par­ents. The auto­mat­ic grad­ing fea­ture in quizzes can save teach­ers a sig­nif­i­cant amount of time.
  5. Google Class­room: A plat­form that stream­lines the process of shar­ing files and com­mu­ni­cat­ing with stu­dents. Teach­ers can cre­ate class­es, dis­trib­ute assign­ments, com­mu­ni­cate, and stay orga­nized. It inte­grates seam­less­ly with oth­er Google Suite apps, mak­ing it a cen­tral hub for course management.
  6. Google Dri­ve: A cloud stor­age ser­vice that allows users to save files online and access them from any device. It’s cru­cial for stor­ing and shar­ing edu­ca­tion­al mate­r­i­al, ensur­ing that stu­dents and teach­ers can access their work from anywhere.
  7. Google Cal­en­dar: This app helps in sched­ul­ing class­es, assign­ments, exams, and meet­ings. It’s a vital tool for time man­age­ment and keep­ing track of impor­tant edu­ca­tion­al events and deadlines.
  8. Google Meet: A video com­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vice that’s essen­tial for remote learn­ing, vir­tu­al par­ent-teacher meet­ings, and online col­lab­o­ra­tion. It allows for real-time video class­es and meet­ings, fos­ter­ing a con­nect­ed learn­ing environment.
  9. Google Sites: A web­site cre­ation tool that’s use­ful for stu­dent projects and e‑portfolios. It allows stu­dents and teach­ers to cre­ate web­sites for class projects, clubs, or as a plat­form to show­case stu­dent work.
  10. Google Keep: A note-tak­ing ser­vice that helps in orga­niz­ing notes and ideas. It’s use­ful for both stu­dents and teach­ers for jot­ting down reminders, cre­at­ing to-do lists, and keep­ing track of impor­tant edu­ca­tion­al notes.

Each of these apps con­tributes unique­ly to cre­at­ing an inter­ac­tive, col­lab­o­ra­tive, and orga­nized edu­ca­tion­al envi­ron­ment. They are designed to be acces­si­ble and user-friend­ly, ensur­ing that tech­nol­o­gy enhances the learn­ing expe­ri­ence rather than com­pli­cat­ing it. Now, pair this with the QOMO Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­el. Com­bine the col­lab­o­ra­tive pow­er of Google Slides with the cut­ting-edge tech­nol­o­gy of QOMO Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­els. This results in an engag­ing, inter­ac­tive, and visu­al­ly stun­ning pre­sen­ta­tion expe­ri­ence that cap­ti­vates your stu­dents and makes learn­ing more effective.

Utilizing Google Suites with QOMO Interactive Flat Panels

There are sev­er­al ways to access your Google Suites on your Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­els, but here are the top rec­om­mend­ed choices.

  1. Direct con­nec­tion from lap­top: Con­nect your lap­top through HDMI and USB A‑B to the Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­el to dis­play and con­trol your com­put­er on the Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­el. New­er Inter­ac­tive dis­plays, such as the Bundle­Board H allows you to use a sin­gle USB C cable to trans­mit the image and touch of your computer.
  2. Wire­less Cast­ing: Through the wire­less cast­ing app that is built into QOMO Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­els, eShare, the pre­sen­ter can wire­less­ly cast their com­put­er or tablet to the inter­ac­tive dis­play to show­case their google apps.
  3. Native App Inte­gra­tion: The Bundle­Board H Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­el has native Google Suites inte­gra­tion that allows you to open your google suites just by log­ging into Google Play Store. From here, you can freely dis­play your google apps.
  4. Chrome Flex OPS: Qomo offers a Chrome Flex slot in com­put­er that can be slot­ted into old­er Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­els that may no longer sup­port the Google Apps. This is a great and afford­able way to uti­lize the Google Suites and min­i­miz­ing cable.
  5. Brow­er mode: You can access some of your google apps by open­ing the brows­er on your inter­ac­tive dis­play, going to set­tings, and click­ing desk­top mode. This will exit out of the android web brows­er and repli­cate a desk­top web browser.

Additional Tools to enhance Google Classrooms

Through uti­liza­tion of the over­lay anno­ta­tion that is built into the QOMO Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­els, you can draw on top of any doc­u­ment that you pull up on the dis­play. The draw­ing tool can be found on the side tool­bar of the dis­play. To save the con­tent, click the save but­ton to save it into the inter­nal mem­o­ry of the board, which can be accessed through the file man­ag­er. You can also plug in a USB dri­ve and screen shot the over­lay anno­ta­tion direct­ly onto your USB dri­ve when it is plugged in. Alter­na­tive­ly, on the new­er Bundle­Board H Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­els, you can gen­er­ate a QR code and save the over­lay anno­ta­tion direct­ly onto your phone or tablet.


In con­clu­sion, the syn­er­gy between Google Suites and QOMO Inter­ac­tive Flat Pan­els opens up a world of pos­si­bil­i­ties for enhanc­ing class­room engage­ment and effi­cien­cy.
