Kenston Is A Google School
Kenston has recently implemented a Google Apps domain for the entire campus. In short, this means all students and staff have access to a Google Apps account, giving them the ability to quickly create and share documents, presentations, spreadsheets and more from anywhere.
Google Apps has all the tools that schools need to be productive, including email, calendar, documents and other powerful real-world tools. The tools are free to schools and are built for the web so everyone can work together across any device, anytime.
Since everything happens on Google’s servers, and not locally on the school network, it’s accessible from wherever there’s an Internet connection – at school or at home. Many staff and students already connect to their accounts using mobile devices like an iPhone or Android device.
