Our school district has our own Google APPs Domain. This allows us to distribute school email addresses to students and set policies for the groups within the Domain. There are a variety of applications within Google – mail, docs, presentation, forms, spreadsheet as well as integration with other online web 2.0 tools. Currently, students in grades 8-12 have district-issued email accounts and use the Google APPs Domain. Students are able to easily locate teachers’ and fellow students’ email addresses in our Google Domain mail, as well as communicate and collaborative on projects using both Moodle and Google.
New in fall 2012, students’ district-issued email accounts will be entered into Infinite Campus as their academic school email address and Summit students will be given Google Domain access and have lessons on how to use the tools within the domain.
