The purpose of this session is to dispel some of the common concerns around Google Apps for Education by illustrating how most concerns are actually misunderstandings about the legal agreement between schools and Google. Many of these center around laws like CIPA, COPPA, FERPA, and HIPPA while others are concerns about security, accessibility, ownership, ads, and costs. As a Google Certified Apps Trainer and the CTO of one of the first K-12 schools to "Go Google" I will raise each of the most common concerns discussed around the platform and provide evidence to ease concerns and point to supporting information around the issues. We will also delve into some of the more reasonable valid concerns such as total cost of ownership, bandwidth usage, and the rate of upgrades.
