First of all I am a have extensive Teacher Librarian Technology training. I believe strongly about teaching my students how to be safe online. That means I don't just send them out to surf Google without me by their side. I teach them to use reputable sources, like world book online and online database subscriptions first!
Secondly these Google accounts are what your child will be using through High School to do their work. They will be word processing, researching, building project presentations and so much more! The soon I teach them to do all these amazing things, the sooner your child will be prepared for Middle school and High school!
