Google provides education with a number of services


1. A range of free online tools (eg wordprocessor, spreadsheet, slide presention tool and webpage/wiki creation tool). Content is stored remotely (in the cloud)

2. An online storage area for documents, files, pictures and videos (Drive)

3. Links with companies that manufacture Chromebooks (these require internet access to be productive) and (Android) tablets

4. Support for schools through the Google for Education site and the Google Classroom site (which helps teachers create and organise assignments, provide feedback and communicate with classes)
