If your school is actively using Google's apps, there is a number of ways you can use these with ThingLink. This article serves as a hub for all available integrations - check out the links below to learn more about each of them.
ThingLink is compatible with Chromebooks as long as they receive software updates.
Single Sign-on with G Suite for Schools & Districts
If your school or district is using G Suite for Education and you have a School account on ThingLink, you can make it so all new users who sign up to ThingLink using a Google account from your domain will automatically join your School. If you are actively using Google Classroom, we can also automatically determine account type based on Classroom data. Learn more here.
Availability: educational accounts on School & District plan.
