We are please to announce that Google Apps for Students is now setup and ready to use. Students is grades 4 and above can access their Google Apps at http://gmail.mcdowellstudents.com.
Gaggle.net is still providing email filtering for our student accounts. This year, you will have the option to be the Gaggle administrator for your own students.
I have shared a folder called "Technology Dept" with everyone. You should find it under "Folders Shared with Me" on the left hand side of Google Docs. Another folder, called "Google Apps Student Accounts", has the login information for each student broken down by school.
Please don't feel like you have to figure this out by yourself. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like myself or a technology facilitator to hold a training session with you and your students.
