About this learning opportunity

Are you looking to learn more about integrating Google Apps into learning and teaching? Perhaps you want to take your skills and knowledge about Google Apps to the next level?  

Through this cohort series of face to face meetings and Google Meet, we can gather and work on the modules for Google Certified Educator Level 1. These modules are self-directed and can be accessed from https://edutrainingcenter.withgoogle.com/certification. These modules focus on using Google Apps to support student learning and provide varied examples from classroom teachers at all grade and subject levels. These modules are geared toward both beginners and more experienced Google App users.  Whether or not you want to take the certification exam is entirely up to you, but the modules and sessions will help prepare you for success in the exam.  

What will you gain by attending?

  • An overview of the certification process.
  • A community of learners who are interested in learning more about Google Apps to support learning and teaching.
  • A chance to reflect and engage in dialogue on the topics covered in the modules.
  • Support, when required, for learning new skills.

Please note that you do not need to attend all the sessions since you can access the modules from any place.  

This session addresses the TQS competency #3: Demonstrating a Professional Body of Knowledge

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
