about 1 year ago

Greenwood County School District 52


Greenwood School District 52 has migrated staff email accounts to Gmail.  Along with Gmail, staff members will have access to the Google Apps for Education suite.
 
What does Google Apps include?
 
 

 
 

 

 
Gmail Google Calendar
Google Talk 
Google Docs 
 
 What are the key benefits?
 
  • Lots of storage — You get a full 30 GB of online storage for your email, photos, and documents, so you can archive all of your documents and emails online. You'll no longer need to worry about deleting messages or saving them in offline folders. 
  • Enhanced message organization and retrieval — With Gmail, you'll spend less time managing folders and searching for messages. For example, you can add one or more tags, or "labels," to your messages to organize and store them more efficiently. And with the Google-powered search feature, you can find any message quickly and easily, whether it's in your Inbox or stored in your message archive.
  • Easier calendar sharing — Google Calendar lets you and your colleagues quickly and easily share your calendars with each other and specify the details you want to show. Calendar sharing is a great way to keep each other informed about your schedules.
  • Integrated chat — With the Google Talk instant messaging application, you can communicate instantly with others right from the Gmail interface. In addition, all your chats are automatically saved, so you can always retrieve important information later.
  • Real-time collaboration — Using Google Drive and Docs, you can create documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and more, that you and your team can view and edit at the same time. You can still use your Microsoft Office products as needed, but now you'll have more options for storing and collaborating on your documents.

Google Apps for Education 
 
Greenwood County School District 52 Google Information for Parents and Students
 
 

Students in our district will now have Google Apps for Education accounts in school.  These Google accounts will include the applications for mail, docs, sheets, and slides.  The Greenwood 52 Administration has determined these Google Apps are appropriate and useful for students. For the security and safety of our children, their Gmail accounts may not be used to send or receive email outside of  Greenwood District 52.   This means that parents will not be able to send emails to their students using the district Gmail account and vice versa.

Digital Citizenship

Greenwood County School District 52 digital citizenship program
 
Why teach Digital Citizenship?


In accordance with the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires schools to educate students about appropriate online behavior. This includes education on interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and on cyberbullying awareness and response.
 
Our district feels strongly that all students should be prepared to be good citizens in digital environments, just as they are expected to be good citizens in the physical world. Greenwood 52 students will receive instruction on the safe and proper way to use technology and on digital citizenship topics including: internet safety, privacy & security, relationships & communication, cyberbullying, digital footprint & reputation, self-image & identity, information literacy, and creative credit & copyright. 
 
Our district digital citizenship document utilized by district personnel is listed below.  We have based our curriculum content on the resources provided by Common Sense Media, an excellent resource for the most current topics of digital safety.
