Bethpage High School hosted Google’s Explore EDU, an event designed to highlight Google technology in the schools. As one of only six Google events in the nation this fall, Bethpage was chosen for its exemplary rollout and utilization of Google Chromebooks in the classrooms.

To be selected as a host-site, Bethpage had to provide information on its use of Google tools (Google Chromebooks, Google Apps for Education, Google applications/extensions, etc.) to support teaching and learning. Administrators had the opportunity to share the district’s successful journey to Google products and precisely how it was rolled out with students and staff.

More than 60 educators from the region participated in the event, which gave them a first-hand experience of seeing how technology makes a difference in students’ lives. Visitors toured classrooms at BHS to witness Chromebook use as it happened in the classroom; questioned a panel of BHS students, district-wide teachers, and administrators on its instructional benefits and abilities; questioned the district's technical support panel, and received insight on products from Google.
