Google Apps for Education
Google Apps for Education: As part of the 21st Century Learning Spaces MCPS initiative, all Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) staff and students received a Google Apps for Education account. A Google Apps for Education account is a cloud-based, collaborative application platform that provides access to a host of tools and services such as e-mail, online storage, and web-based communication and collaboration applications. Students and staff are assigned secured accounts to the learning environment and are able to access their accounts through any web-enabled device using any mainstream web-browser. The assigned student and staff accounts enable document sharing, collaborative work, and assessment opportunities in this cloud-based platform. For MCPS, participating students and staff are assigned an “@mcpsmd.net” Gmail-like account. Students and staff can log into their account via any web-enabled device (i.e. laptop/ desktop computer, tablet, or smart phone) using any modern web-browser (i.e. Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari) at http://www.google.com .
Students are restricted to only sending and receiving e-mail from other authorized MCPS account holders. Student progress and engagement will be monitored via a learning management system integrated into the platform that allows teachers to send information to students, offer real-time feedback, and monitor progress on activities.

At Rocky Hill we are introducing our students to Google Apps for Education accounts through English and Health classes. All students have their log in information, which can be found on the password sheet that each student received in November.
