This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
Google Apps for Education is a powerful suite of free web-based tools for schools including Gmail, Google Calendar, Documents, Spreadsheets, Presentations, Forms, Sites, Blogger, and more. Learn step by step how our district rolled out Google Apps to our staff and students, why we chose Google Apps, plus staff training, challenges faced, lessons learned, the benefits of cloud computing, practical examples of how staff and students are using Google Apps, and how we are saving money while expanding educational opportunities for everyone in our district.
