Everyone who knows me knows that I use a lot of apps and resources from Google. They are free, of high quality, and very useful. The Guide to Going Google is a resource from Google that helps educational institutions implement Google Apps for Education in their system.
It is divided by University and K12 Editions. The K12 section has information on promoting Google Apps for Education, the technical aspects, professional development and training resources for your staff, and much more.
Google Apps for Education is a great way for schools to save money on software and systems licensing, IT support, while getting some high quality systems to use with their faculty and students.
For schools that are thinking about implementing Google Apps for Education, this is the first place they should look.
