This course focuses on the Google Suite for Education to help teachers prepare for the Google for Education Level 1 Certified Educator exam. While most of the attention will be given to learning the tools themselves, the course will also ask teachers to reflect on pedagogical uses and best practice. The research basis for these best practices is John Hattie’s Visible Learning, which is a synthesis of 800 meta-analyses related to student achievement.4 The tutorial videos, coursework, and individualized support provided in this course are intended to supplement the fundamentals training experience that the Google for Education team has already created to prepare educators for the Google for Education Level 1 Certified Educator exam. This course can be taken at any time and can be completed at whatever pace you feel comfortable with!
Teachers will be able to lead their students into transformational learning through their use of educational technology—particularly the Google Suite for Education—and will have the confidence they need to pass the Google for Education Level 1 Certified Educator exam by learning the skills specified on the skills checklist created by Google for Education Certified Trainer, Eric Curts.
