Dear Parent / Guardian,
This year our school will be offering students the use of a school-managed Google Apps for Education (GAFE) Account. GAFE is a free, “walled garden” style learning platform where students can have discussions, share their learning and collaborate on projects. They will also gain access to a document and media creation platform similar to Microsoft Office that includes online cloud storage via through Google Drive. This private online learning environment is teacher managed and students will only be able to interact with others in the class, other teachers, and specific outside agencies based on educational need (Distance Education providers, etc).
We will be using GAFE to: Provide students a set of free tools to do all their work for all classes, store and manage assignments across all platforms (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, etc), and collaborate and receive feedback among their teachers and peers in real time.
Please read this parent/guardian documentation for further information.
