Palacio de Granda has been certified, in May 2019, as a Google for Education Reference School, being one of the first schools in Spain to have achieved this important recognition, granted for the successful implementation and exemplary use of the new technologies and innovative use of Google applications, in all areas of its activity.
This distinction rewards the work carried out by our team over the last few years, with our aim of incorporating digital solutions that allow us to improve our teaching practices, including the daily use of tools, such as Google Classroom, in subjects in Primary and Secondary, generating a positive impact on student learning. It also recognizes the degree of competence of our teaching team in the use of these applications, with 39% of teachers certified as level 1 and 12.5% as level 2 Google Educators. We also have an officially accredited Google Trainer on our staff.
We consider that joining the prestigious global network of Google Reference Schools, is an important milestone in our educational project, as it means having the endorsement of one of the most important technology companies in the world, characterized by continuous innovation, team work and is also the source of inspiration and change for more than 80 million students and teachers around the world.
We are one of the first educational centers in Spain to achieve this accolade and the first of the ISP chain in Europe to be recognized at this level of digital competency for the development of our educational project.
