Public school students in this town can expect to be eventually using a suite of cloud-based applications.
“We wanted a single product for students and staff to work better together, from anywhere,” said Ruben Fernandez, supervisor of technology and instruction for the Benicia Unified School District, during Thursday’s school board meeting.
Fernandez gave a brief presentation on Google Apps, several online programs that include a storage drive, word processing and other features. Fernandez touted the system as one that increases collaboration across the district.
“The traditional barriers will be pulled down to working together,” he said.
