Google Apps for Education—Google Classroom This year EPS is rolling out Google Apps for Education. Google Apps provide an online storage space for files that can be accessed from school or home. Google Apps for Education is not the same as a Gmail account. While Google Apps provides email at some grade levels, all students will have access to a suite of other Google products such as Google Drive, Classroom, and Calendar.
A Closer look at Google Drive – Google Drive provides online file storage so teachers can share documents and homework assignments with students. It extends the classroom learning environment by providing free word processing, spreadsheet and presentation tools that can be accessed at school and home. Drive allows for collaboration among students in the classroom, within a building and within the entire District. It also allows teachers to provide discreet and effective feedback to students.
