Polk County Public Schools is offering Google Apps (myPolkApps)! Google Apps Education Edition is a free set of tools designed for schools. On Google Apps you’ll have a Gmail account to use for school related communication, a calendar to help you stay organized, Google Docs to work on papers and presentations, Google Sites to create project websites or a portfolio of work, and much more!
Students log in using the Student Portal to access Google Apps. Students will use their Polk credentials to log in to the portal (i.e., johnt4). Ask your teacher if you are unsure of your username or password.
The basics page lets you know what you can do with Google documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
The getting started guide provides easy to understand information on how to create, edit, and share a document.
This is an online learning environment dedicated for educators and students to learn how to effectively use Google Apps in an educational context.
