Google Apps for Education

Google Apps for Education is a free, advertising-free solution for email, calendar and chat. It allows a school to have its own communication and collaboration tools. Tools include: Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Sites (websites), Vault and more. The main advantages are real-time collaboration, automatic updates of Google programs and the entire Google infrastructure.   Another advantage is that students can subscribe to the school calendar and individual class calendars and a calendar for Jewish studies. Events will be layered so students can see an overview of their entire day. They can also set up their own study group calendars or subscribe to their friend's calendars.  The beauty of all this is that the material that you post - documents, websites and videos - can be kept private and only viewed by those who have been given school accounts.



Each user will have 30 GB of storage for Google Drive (Docs), Gmail and Picasa Web Albums.  Note that there are limits to Drive and Sites, although they are quite large. As well, each person can get an email address with a school domain (we are registered with tiferes.ca).


All our accounts and emails will have a user@tiferes.ca name. Student mail can be monitored, although we already have this capability through Spectof360. Data is owned by us, not Google and we can remove or move it when desired.
