We just started using Google Apps for Education in my former district. The initial reason was for a more reliable way for students to store their files, and Google does a good job at that. The additional benefits were many…document sharing (for student projects and between student and teacher), students from grade 3 up having a school-issued email address (now they can create accounts for websites I wish to use in the classroom if there are no age-restrictions), and google forms/spreadsheets…pretty powerful tools! I have begun to collect some resources for learning about Google Apps for Education on Pinterest….check it out at:
