Search king Google wants to make education magical. But people still have to find the magic.

A facelift to the Google education page aims to bring all the company’s initiatives together in one place so teachers and students alike can more easily get involved. The company runs camps and competitions for students. For teachers, Google offers some professional development opportunities as well as classroom tools.

In addition, Google education has an active presence on Google+, with discussion around topics like encouraging young girls in STEM and technology’s role in education.

To sum it all up for those who’d rather read about Google’s education efforts and particularly how others are using the resources, the company produced a 53-page guide: “Google in Education: A New and Open World for Learning.”
