The Howard County Public School System  has implemented a private workspace with Google Apps for Education (GAfE) and is only available to staff and students of the Howard County Public School System. This valuable tool is accessible to all HCPSS schools during the 2012-2013 school year.
Materials can be accessed by students and staff, both in school and at home. The electronic materials will be housed, and communication and collaboration will take place, in the GAfE. To access the GAfE,  bookmark https://hcpss.me and click on Private. The students will log in with their username and password.
To learn how to use GAFE, as well as, best practices, you may access the GAFE website, especially the FAQs and learning tutorials at https://sites.google.com/a/hcpss.me/gafe/faq-s.
At this time, only students in grades 4 and 5 have used the GAfE in technology class. We will introduce this workspace to our students in grades K-2 later this year.
