May 2015 Staff e-survey (GAFE - Google Apps For Education)
Please fill this out again, now that many of you have been using these tools for nearly half a year, so we can provide you with the support you require to enhance learning.

You will notice that there are a few new questions, including around specific help for different tools.

Please also note the links below (mostly) the first question in each section which will take you to webpages with helpful "how-to" instructions.

There are also comprehensive instructions and lessons provided by Google that can be found here:

We know lots of staff are discovering and using all sorts of different tools, apps, websites etc that other staff may find valuable. We would like to create a snapshot of what we are using. What do you use?, and how do you use it?
