A collection of free Google tools, apps and collaboration services for K-12 and higher-ed

Overview

Google Apps for Education offers a free suite of productivity tools (like Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, etc.) specifically designed for school usage. Schools--both K-12 and universities--can create accounts that match their brand (you@yourschool.edu). It can allow for better collaboration and communication between and among students and teachers, as they can share documents and calendars. 

At the Google I/O conference in May 2013, the company also announced a Play for Education program, an app store that allows teachers to search for apps by grade level and subject matter. Set to launch in Fall 2013, the program also serves as a content management platform, where teachers can deploy books, apps, and YouTube videos to students' tablets or other Google-supported devices in the classroom.
