Uhuruto government promised laptops for primary school children and was even called the digital duo. Google came in as a partner in a related program to make access to information more affordable. These two projects failed but is there a chance that the new google workspace can be integrated for free primary education? Private schools already use it because they have the infrastructure and manpower. Will a government program on a nation scale solve access to education?

Can digital media offer free basic education for everyone?
Yes, during corona period when all the learning institutions close their operations physically, many learning institutions embrace goggle meet to continue with classes as well as the exams and it was very helpful.
Yes, Google Workspace is free for education. G Suite Education is the most popular tool among the students all over the world and very important in the field of Study purposes. Google Workspace includes Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google Sheet, Google Docs, Google Slides, Google classroom, Google Meet, Google Forms, Jam board etc. The students can have their study digitally with the help of G Suite. To make the education system smooth and easier.
The students can have their studies anytime, anywhere with the help of Google Workspace. Google Workspace Education is completely free, a student whose financial condition is not stable, he also can continue his studies and can been connected with Google. It includes Google Classroom, Google meet which helps the meetings and gives the feel of Classroom study without being present physically.
It is possible but we cannot ignore the financial implications. It would not make sense for such a program to be a priority while people are starving out there.
