Google Apps Education Edition is a broad IT solution that schools can use to bring communication and collaboration tools to the entire academic community for free. Students, teachers and staff can share ideas more quickly and get things done more effectively when they have access to the same powerful communication and sharing tools. Google Apps can be used to create documents, spreadsheets and presentations and then allows teachers and students to collaborate with each other in real-time right inside a web browser window. As a school, we use Google for email, calendars, device management, and file storage. When paired with google classroom, these tools allow teachers and students a more direct way to interact than ever before.
