Google Apps for Education Certification Boot Camp (for Trainers)
Two Sections: February 20 & 21 (SOLD OUT) OR February 22 & 23
The Google Apps for Education Certified Training serves two purposes: to raise awareness about
how Google Apps can be used in education (with students and among colleagues), and to prepare
participants to pass the Google Apps for Education Qualification Tests. Each session includes an
interactive overview, top tips from the Google Apps for Education Training Center, hands-on activities,
and inspiring ideas for how to use Google Apps for teaching, learning, and professional collaboration.
The activities are flexible, designed to help new users quickly understand the "core magic" of each
app - and to challenge veteran users by revealing features and innovative uses they never imagined.
The experience is grounded in Google culture, complete with high-energy fast-paced demonstrations
and challenging activities that can truly be called "hard fun." There is no better preparation for teaching
and learning with Google Apps - or for passing the Google Apps EDU tests.
During the second day of this two-day bootcamp, participants prepare their applications to become
Google Apps for Education Certified Trainers. Certification is not included in the bootcamp
(passing six tests, submitting an application, and approval from Google are required following the event).
Taking tests and applying for certification is not necessary for participating in the bootcamp.
