The quotes on this tweet by Lucy Gray really resonate with me and those who are passionate about global education. This conference is an amazing one in that it is online, free and truly global. It runs 24/7 over the course of three days. See the schedule and choose your time zone.

Google Certified Educator Level 1 & 2 – Complete

October 13, 2017 Leave a comment

HI All – Our tech committee discussed having all teachers at our school get their Level 1 certification and I wanted to see how easy or hard it was.  I liked it.  I didn’t do all the training but the training is free and I perused all of the pages and only stopped to read things I don’t use regularly.  I tried all the questions for testing your knowledge and I felt ready.  I passed.  I would encourage all teachers to try this.  It is only $10 and I was glad I tried it.  I then studied for Level 2.  It was more challenging, but I passed!  Good Luck to all who are trying them.

If you need more info, check out the Training Website at: https://edutrainingcenter.withgoogle.com/certification.
