  • Groups: a fully functioning threaded discussion tool
  • Aviary: a set of image and audio creation and editing tools

  • Most other Google Tools!
The District’s primary reasons for supplying these tools to students are:
  • To provide our students with practice in using current technology applications and tools, including e-mail, word processing, spreadsheet use, survey development, graphics use and slide show creation
  • To provide students with planning and time management tools to develop 21st century skills
  • To facilitate “paperless” communication and transfer of work between students and teachers
  • To provide adequate (7 GB) long-term storage space for student work
  • To help students work collaboratively, engage in peer-editing of documents, and publishing for a wider audience
