What is Google Apps for Education?
Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is a suite of online tools that include Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Calendar and Contacts.

Google Apps allow anyone with internet access to access their documents via Google Drive anytime, anywhere.

Google Apps are collaborative documents where multiple users can view or edit documents at the same time, in "real time"
Watch the short overview video on this page for additional information.

TDSB is a Google Apps for Education customer, which means that our district has access to all of Google's Educational products and services at no cost, with no advertising, in our own private and secure environment.  Moreover, all TDSB staff & students are automatically given GAFE accounts.
