Certified (Part 1)

This is a post I probably should’ve written a few months back but it’s only today (with a bit of a blog tidy up) that I have got round to it.

After attending the Google Teacher Academy in July 2010, we launched Google Apps in our school and I have blogged many times about the different ways in which we have used Google at school but one thing was mentioned at the Academy that I thought could be useful. The Google Apps Exams. These are a set of six exams on things like Mail, Docs or Calendar which help teachers along the Google Apps road. Now once you have completed the exams you can submit a video and an application form to Google and become a Google Apps for Education Certified Trainer. Which is exactly what I have done.

At the time of writing there are three of us in the UK and I have now been involved with 6 or 7 training days across the country. These training sessions have ranged from complete beginners to more advanced users too.  I have also taken part in webinars to help show people some of the other aspects of Google Apps.

So if your school is thinking about using Google Apps or would like some training, please get in touch.
