By leveraging the power of Google’s online, tools,
Hastings Apps
gives all 4-12 students access to a
robust and secure platform for collaboration with their teachers and other students. Specifically, Hastings Apps includes tools for email, word processing, spreadsheets
, and presentations. In this way it functions like an online version of Microsoft
Office®. It is important that our students practice using these tools to better
prepare them for expectations of post secondary institutions and the “real world."

The technology team has carefully configured the system to maximize its use while preserving a secure online environment for students. All emails are scanned for
potentially malicious content. As with other technology systems, the best defense is effective supervision of students while they use technology and education for
students about safe online practices. Hastings Apps provides a wonderful
opportunity to discuss digital citizenship with our students and provides them with an opportunity to begin developing their “professional” digital footprint.

Teachers have identified many creative uses for Hastings Apps and have
integrated them into their courses.

Some of the activities include:

  • Students creating and collaborating on documents, spreadsheets
  • and presentations;
  • Students submitting homework electronically (reducing paper
  • and printing consumption);
  • Teachers interacting with students electronically commenting
  • directly on student work.
