Google Level 1 Certification

Let's Finish Google Level 1

We will continue our Google Level 1 certification process. We ended with Unit 10 in December so we will continue with Unit 11 Jan. 10-14.


I understand not everyone is on Unit 11 and that is fine. The goal is to work through this process for the remainder of the year. I (Starla) hope to be ready to take the Google Level 1 assessment in March. I have a few more units to finish and then plan to go back and review some of the skills that were new to me. I will let you know when I start the reviews and you can join me or I will share my resources.


Our goal is to get at least 10 staff members certified (Level 1) this academic year. Thanks to all of you who have been working on it. It does take quite some time to complete some of the units, but you can include this in TKES goal if it has anything to do with using technology or instructional practices. Let me know if I can help in anyway.

Tattnall Tech Tools

We believe it is important to ensure all of our staff are aware of what technology tools are available to them. You can only use it if you know about it. Feel free to contact us anytime for an overview session. We do not mind working one-to-one, grade level, or school wide. We are here to support your use of technology.


We have featured some of the newer tools in past newsletters. Below is a list of applications available to all schools:



  • Blocksi - screen sharing, monitor students' computers to ensure they are on task, freeze sites for assessment purposes, and so much more
  • BrainPOP - instructional videos and quizzes for all grade levels and subjects
  • Flocabulary - encourages content specific vocabulary in a lyrical manner
  • iXL - practice in various subjects and grades (this varies by grade level)
  • Swank - videos of entertainment
  • USATestprep - great for benchmarking or checking for mastery of the standards (differs between schools and grade levels)
