Google Apps for Education Certified Training offered by the EdTechTeam
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.
Led by Dr. Mark Wagner, Director of the Google Teacher Academy, the EdTechTeam features dozens of Google Certified Teachers and Google Apps EDU Certified Trainers, including many who are veteran leaders at the Google Teacher Academy and who have helped author the Google Apps for Education Qualification Tests.
The bootcamp at the Google Apps for Education Alaska Summit is led by Molly Schroeder, Google Certified Teacher and Apps EDU Certified Trainer.
