Google Certified Educator Level 1 Bootcamp
For educators, the new Google for Education Certified Educator courses are truly transformative in helping you incorporate Google tools in your teaching. Rather than focusing on rote knowledge of apps the course and certification exam focus on the practical application of the tools in the classroom. This day will focus on the Google for Education Certified Educator Level 1 certification and includes a voucher to take the exam for free. Many that attend this training quickly pass the Level 1 exam and are qualified to become Trainers or Innovators. Exams are taken independently after the bootcamp.
Following the fundamentals training, we will utilise Google Classroom for this professional development experience. You'll learn what it is like to be a student for a day in Classroom! We'll cover Hangouts, Docs, Slides and Drawings - all of which encourage collaboration for engaging learners. You'll also learn about the many faces of Forms, Calendars and more. We will get your testing account setup and apply your voucher so you are ready to take the exam within days of the bootcamp. Note: Passing the test is not guaranteed.
This strand is for beginners who have just started using G Suite (formerly Google Apps) and would like to learn the basics and grow confidence without working towards the Certified Educator exam. You'll learn how to begin using Calendar to organise your day and meet your 'office in the cloud' - Google Drive. Drive allows you to work on documents, spreadsheets, slideshows, and more. You'll even get hands-on with Google Classroom to learn how you can quickly and easily manage the assignment workflow without all the printing!
The whole course provides real-life examples for pedagogically sound use of the tools inside and outside the classroom.
We use the best Google trainers from across the world. All of them are edtech experts and have a history of innovation in the classroom. Many are still practicing teachers.
Our bootcamps are great value. Your ticket price even includes a voucher code to sit the relevant Google Certified Educator exam for free!
