Google Educator Certification

Let's get certified!

In lieu of the SPARC Conference this year, we are putting professional development funds and PD time toward the goal of achieving Google Educator certifications. Google provides self-paced training in all of the apps in the G-Suite for Education series. Since you already know a good deal about Google apps, you will likely be able to skim over some portions of the training modules and then focus more on the ones you haven't learned yet. You can skip to questions without actually doing everything it tells you to!

Upon completion, you can take an assessment that gains you an official certification in your mastery of Google tools! There are two certification levels available Level 1- Fundamentals and Level 2 - Advance. Both certifications are now valid for 3 years!

Big picture
An amazing goal would be to have a full staff of certified teachers, and you already have enough background and experience with Google that this is very possible! Reaching this goal will mean that we are even better equipped to teach our students with 21st-century tools whether we are teaching in person or remotely.

Google also offers certifications for Trainers, Coaches and Innovators. Let me know if you want more information about those!

Please watch this video overview before you get started!
