Primary schools in Sheffield are among the first in the UK to pilot Gmail - Google's free "anywhere anytime" email service. They are using it as an integrated part of their Studywiz learning platform.
"The vast majority of Sheffield primary schools are already using Studywiz and Gmail," says Andrew Bush, senior ICT consultant with Sheffield City Council. “This development will bring seamless integration of two key internet technologies, giving teachers personalised access to their communications and resources. It is a very exciting step in the development of e-learning for students in Sheffield schools.”
