The Great Gmail Migration BEGINS!

Last year we embraced the wonders of Google Apps for Education (GAFE) with great success.  This year we are empowering even more functionality with GAFE by migrating from Outlook to Gmail.

Daniel Whitt, Coordinator of Instructional Technology at MCS, pointed out a few reasons this transition will be beneficial for students and teachers:

Why We're Excited 
1. We can now use the much-requested "Email" function within Google Classroom. This will enable students to email their teachers (and vice-versa) within Google Classroom.  
2. We will never have to worry about inbox size again; we have unlimited storage.  
3. It is virtually impossible to ever experience a "crash" again. Our email is backed up on Google's servers across a variety of geographic locations.

Below is the first Tech Tips of the Week S'more Newsletter from the JCHS Library for the 2016-17 school year. Hopefully these tips will get out JCHS teachers off on the right foot with our Gmail migration.

What tips, tricks, advice would YOU suggest?!
