The Journey Begins
Navigating the Google Wilderness
Welcome to the Port Angeles School District Google Resource Website!
The goal of this page is to not only showcase what can be done with a Google website, but also as a resource to better understand the use and deployment of Google tools at your disposal.
From Chromebooks to Chrome Browsers, to Docs and Sheets, to Extensions and Add-Ons, there is a tool that can fit every need you might have. This can be overwhelming at times and so we hope to help guide you through the twists and turns!
Google vs. the G Suite for Education
Google is a vast jungle filled with apps, extensions, add-ins and a zillion other things that make it so unique. The G Suite for Education (or originally known as GAFE, that's Google Apps For Education) is just a few extra bells and whistles that turn the already existing Google tools into a collaborative learning space for students and teachers.
Check out this video on the Google for Education page for more info. You can also visit our Getting to Know Google to learn more.
