Step-by-Step instructions for Students and Teachers
Go to www.google.comwww.google.com Click “sign in” at the top, right-hand corner of the screen. Click “create an account now” at the bottom, right-hand corner of the screen.
You can either create a new email address ~OR~ use an existing email address. I would recommend using an existing address, such as your school account or personal account. If you create a new email address, just follow the prompts.
Type in existing email address (current email address). Choose a password. Re-enter password. Make sure “Stay Signed In” is NOT checked if using a public computer. Check “Enable Web History” only if using a personal computer.
Uncheck “Set Google as my default homepage” (unless you want to see it as the first page that comes up when you log onto the internet). Keep the location as “United States”. Enter your birthday in the MM/DD/YYYY format (you must be 18 or older). If used for classroom use, it is the teacher’s discretion on whether to allow students to change the year they were born.
Enter the word verification. If you are having trouble reading the word verification, click the handicapped symbol. Click “I accept. Create my account.” You may see a message that states it needs to verify your account. Go to the email address that you provided to view a message from Google. Click the link to activate your new Google account.
After clicking the link, you MAY receive a message asking you to add a mobile phone number. This is OPTIONAL. Congratulations. You now have a Google account. Click “Click here to manage your account profile.” ~OR~ sign in (at the top, right-hand corner of the screen).
