By the end of summer, any thoughts of vacation and rest will be set aside for anyone working in education. Teachers will be preparing to come back to the classroom. Administrators will be finishing up with hiring and planning. And school IT leaders will be trying to make sure everyone has what they need to launch the year – with the right edtech tools – which can mean many calls to edtech vendors for IT support.
Onboarding New EdTech Can Be a Challenge for School IT Leaders
Onboarding new edtech solutions at your school can be challenging and time-consuming. If the process isn’t smooth, it can slow you down. And if edtech solutions aren’t properly vetted, they can leave your school at risk.
GG4L Connects EdTech Vendors and Schools Securely and Safely
Not only does GG4L make it easy for schools to find the edtech solutions they need; but, we also make onboarding a snap. GG4L’s School Passport 2.0 allows edtech vendors to integrate their solutions with learning management systems and school data, ensuring that the school’s student data is protected. Instead of each individual edtech vendor attempting to obtain your roster data, we:
- Include carefully vetted edtech vendor products into our Catalyst Catalog
- Provide our vetted edtech vendors access to SIS roster data through standards-based API
- Provide optional custom data exchange API services
- Allow schools to select certain edtech solutions for a trial basis

- An Ever-Expanding Catalog of EdTech Applications and Tools
