Google Apps For Education (GAFE)

What is GAFE?

Andrean High School is proud to offer our students and staff access to Google Apps. Apps for Education (GAFE) is a core suite of productivity applications that Andrean High School has recently implemented. These communication and collaboration apps include Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs and Sites. Additionally all Andrean teacher or student accounts unlocks access to dozens of other collaborative tools supported by Google. All of these applications exists completely online (or in the cloud), meaning that all creations can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection.

Google Classroom

Classroom is a free web-based platform that integrates your Google Apps for Education account with all your Google Apps services, including Google Docs, Gmail, and Google Calendar. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized.

Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom.
