Google is currently offering schools a hosted solution for their email, calendar, and chat through Google Apps for Education, our integrated communication and collaboration solution. Additionally, you can complement the core suite to meet your users' needs, with access to dozens more Google applications.

Core Google Apps for Education suite includes:

  • Google Mail: Used for students only. Grades 4-6 can only email internally, grades 7-12 can email globally.
  • Google Calendar: Students can organize their schedules and share events and calendars with others.
  • Google Drive: Share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Collaborate in real-time with your team or with your whole school.
  • Google Sites: Work together to keep related documents, web content and other information in one place, on one site.

Ideas on how to use Google in your classroom

  • Have students submit papers electronically, by sharing their Google Doc with you
  • Create online portfolios -- Googlios
  • Encourage students to use their Google Mail account to email you with questions, comments, concerns from class
  • Have group documents and presentations created in Drive so multiple students can work on the same document at the same time.
  • Use the Chat feature in Drive to have students submit questions as they think of them instead of sitting with their hand raised.
  • Peer edit papers easily by having students make Comments on another's paper
  • Set up parent teacher conferences in a spreadsheet to sign-up for conference times
