Google Certified Educator Level 1

‘Ideal for classroom teachers who are using G Suite for Education, Google Classroom or Chromebooks on a regular basis’.

I am not a classroom teacher, though I have taught classes and nearly started a PGCE this year. 

Those I support at an FE/HE College are expected to use G Suite for Education and Google Classroom extensively. 

And they and their students use Chromebooks. 

Being a ‘MacMan’ with an iBook I struggle with Chromebooks - like taking to an ice-rink in oversized welly boots sad

So much resistance. I am trying to embrace it. Like I have to stop learning French and take up Portuguese. 

What are the benefits? 

Because I have a passion for effective teaching.

New features, trips and strategies.

As part of lifelong learning.

There are likely to be 110 million students using G Suite for Education.

Can provide training and support once proficient.

Worldwide there are approximately:

Level 1 : 30,000

Level 2: 5,000

Trainers : 2,000

Innovators : 1,200
