Google Workspace for education overview
What is Google Workspace for EDU?
Google Workspace for Education is a suite of tools that allows students and teachers to collaborate in real-time to create documents, presentations, surveys, spreadsheets, drawings and even websites. All tools are free, ad-free, reliable and secure. You can find more details about the tools we use on the Google Classroom or Google Workspace Tools Pages.
Why are we using it?
Google Workspaces for Education provides the ability for students and teachers to communicate, store files and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from school or home, all within a secure online environment. It is important to remember an educational Google account is structured and managed differently than a “consumer” or “personal” Google account.
