All of our students are able to access Google Drive with their email accounts and password.  This does not mean they have a Gmail account, it is a way for them to access Google Drive without the teacher having to log in each student under their Gmail account.  Yes, even you have a Google Account through the school district.  This is exciting news for our students to collaborate in school  or at home with Google Docs.  Below I have added a beginner's look at Google Docs video.
