That is interesting. "New Google Schools"? I see a list of elite US universities!

I'm confused again:
- "opposed to school servers"
You mean file storage for the users?
- "Computer suites"
Never heard of such thing, unless you have a dress codex for the computer lab!
- "Office or other software that teachers use"
Now I see, you are talking about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_suites
. But such software is known even in the secondary schools these days. I expect the "schools" in that blog
-post to be more advanced.
Well, this I understood: "So what does ‘going Google’ actually mean? Typically, it means schools and districts will start using Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, and Google Sites. Each classroom will typically set up a Google Site for collaboration purposes, an account can help turn in homework via Google Drive, and of course Gmail goes without saying. While it’s not cheap, the ability to migrate all of this kind of work to Google’s cloud services could mean a lot less stress over your IT infrastructure (both financial and otherwise)."
Unfortunately the "Learn more" link takes me to Apple iTunes. No idea why.
