CCSD66 - Officially a Google Apps for Ed. District
As of this week, I am very proud to say that all Lakeview students and all district staff now have a Google Apps for Education account. The rollout went very smoothly with staff accounts going live first, and then 8th graders, 7th graders and, finally, 6th graders. Special thanks to the Language Arts teachers and Mrs. Myers for their help with the rollout, as well as Mrs. Kucera, who did the necessary network work and helped with our staff rollout. Our students now have access to one of the most powerful tools available for educational collaboration and learning. To kick off their use of Apps the students have done some progressive story telling and have been having great fun with it. All while learning some of the important skills needed to take full advantage of this tool. The district has been abuzz as the students and staff have begun to see the possibilities that Apps affords them. I can't wait to see all the wonderful ways we put it to use over the course of this school year.
