Google Apps for Education
Ankeny Community Schools provides all students and staff with a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) account. This account offers access to a variety of online collaboration tools including Google Drive, Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Classroom. In addition, this account serves as the backbone of our 1:1 initiative. For more information on the use of GAFE accounts on student Chromebooks, please click here.
Google Apps Training & Support
The Google Help Center maintains a comprehensive list of support resources for all Google products. In addition, students and staff can complete free interactive tutorials at the Google Apps Learning Center. Finally, teachers are encouraged to visit the Google for Education Training Center for ideas and directions on how to make the most of GAFE accounts in their classroom. Below are direct links to some of the most commonly-used Google tools in our district. If you have any questions about Google Apps, feel free to contact any member of our Technology Integration Staff.
