Google Workspace for Education is a core suite of productivity tools that Google offers to schools and educational institutions for FREE. These communication and collaboration apps include Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs and Sites. In addition, a GAFE account unlocks access to dozens of other collaborative tools supported by Google. All of these applications exist completely online (or in the cloud), meaning that all files can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection. Once a school decides to embrace Google Workspace for Education, it can register its school domain (web address), and administer all teacher and student accounts from an administrative dashboard.
