New Zealand education specialists Cyclone Computers has taken out a top regional Google award, claiming Asia-Pacific Partner of the Year for Devices in 2015.

Honoured during an invitation only Google Teamwork Summit in Las Vegas, the award acknowledges Cyclone’s expertise and dedication to meeting customers’ Google needs on a daily basis, fending off competition from rival resellers throughout the region in the process.

As a Google Premier Partner in Education, Cyclone works closely with a large number of schools throughout New Zealand, providing both Chromebooks devices and services to setup, deploy and provide specialist professional development to support classroom usage.

"This award acknowledges Cyclone’s expertise and dedication to meeting customers’ Google needs and is a significant accomplishment given the huge surge in all things Google over this time," says Leigh Gibbard, Schools Sales Manager, Cyclone.

“As the device supplier to the Maniakalani Trust as well as their outreach clusters and other community based organisations and schools throughout New Zealand, we staff understand how such disruptive digital devices create a catalyst for change.

“Both teaching and learning should shift dramatically to better address the way digital savvy students learn.”

Going forward, Gibbard says Cyclone will continue to invest in the Google environment including staff with top level Google qualifications - Google Trained Teachers, Google Educators and Google Trainers.

“We see that schools are motivated by the simplicity that Google offers to them – but purchasing a device alone will not change learning,” he adds.

“This is where Cyclone has had particular success in working alongside New Zealand schools as they introduce digital teaching.”
