What is a Google Certified Educator Level 1?

One of the best ways to learn how to effectively implement the Google Apps for Education in your classroom is to take the online Google Certified Educator Level 1 Course. By reading, watching videos, and doing activities, you will learn how to integrate Google in your classroom. You can start and stop lessons at any time; Google will track your progress through the courses.

Courses in the Fundamentals training include:

  • Engage in Professional Growth and Leadership

  • Increase Efficiency and Save Time

  • Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity

At the end of the Fundamentals course, you'll be ready to take the exam to become a Google Certified Educator Level 1. If you do not wish to take the exam, you can be "Clay County Google Certified" by providing the documentation that you have successfully completed the courses in the Fundamentals training.
