This past month, Google introduced a complete revamp of G Suite for Education. Google Workspace for Education is taking over and introducing ample products, pricing, and accessibilities to schools and districts.
Google Workspace for Education still includes all the products your school has relied on this school year, such as Classroom and Meet. Google is continuing to offer these products while restructuring the editions to better meet the diverse needs of institutions across the globe. The announced changes will go into effect starting April 14, 2021.
While pricing listed is the official Google pricing, CDW-G and the Illinois Learning Technology Purchase Program (ILTPP) have partnered to provide ILTPP members paid editions at a discounted rate. To learn more about how to save, contact your dedicated Account Manager, John Buttita below and mention ILTPP.
G Suite for Education > Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals
This edition remains free and is comprised of tools that enable collaborative learning opportunities on a secure platform. If your school is currently using this edition, there will be no changes made other than the new name and newly added features. Google plans to continue to build this free edition by, “listening closely to educators and their needs.”
- Pricing: No Charge
This brand new edition includes advanced security and analytics tools through the Security Center to help reduce risks and mitigate threats with increased visibility and mobile management control across your learning environment.
- Pricing: $3/student/year. Buy 4 student licenses, get 1 staff license for free. This edition is priced off of enrollment. The way it is structured, your school or district should get more staff licenses than needed. For full domain, you must purchase a license for all students.
