To follow up from the Google announcement last week about their new Education Certifications we are delighted to be rolling out four brand new 1 day certification courses to schools worldwide starting from 1 July.
A feedback we have often heard from attendees at our trainings is that attendees would like to come to learn and share, but also leave with a certification to have something concrete to show for the day. Combining the two is the goal of our new flagship courses.
The fact that you complete a certification exercise during the day doesn’t make the day any less fun, in fact often people find this the most fun part of the day! We focus on group exercises, quizzes and challenges throughout the day to keep things high energy and maximise the learning. Like with all AppsEvents events we hold a networking party directly after the day with a free drinks party for all attendees.
We have four courses to choose from; two from Google and two from AppsEvents and with all of them you will finish the day fully certified with your electronic and lapel badges and certificate.
For educators the new ‘Certified Educator’ courses are truly transformative in helping you incorporate Google tools in your teaching. The previous certification focussed mainly on using the tools, whereas the new syllabus focuses on the practical application of the tools in the classroom. We will walk you through exercises covering actual class tasks linking together Classroom, Gmail, Drive, Sites and Calendar, YouTube and even more….
For school IT staff and management the ACA level 1 and 2 ‘certs’ take you through Google Apps Administration starting from scratch with our structured program. It’s important to note that these courses are also great for educators looking to get into administration, and more than half of our certified ACA’s are classroom teachers.
In addition we are running these courses at most of our upcoming Global Summits. Our plan now is to have the two ‘level one’ courses’ held as parallel ‘pre-summit’ days, and the two ‘level 2’ courses as a ‘summit strand on the first day of the summit..Please note that for all these certifications you need to have passed the Level 1 in order to take the level 2. If you have any questions as to if a summit you are attending has these courses please email email@example.com
All courses are lead by our world class team of trainers, all of whom are practicing educators with a history of excellence and innovation in the classroom, including: +Rowland Baker (West Coast), +Allison Mollica (East Coast and Central) +James Sayer +Lee Webster +Davis Apas +Richard Poth +Stuart Lowe +Danny Green +Anita Chen (Asia), +Sarah Woods +Ben Rouse +O Trussell +Dan Leighton +Aaron Tyo-Dickerson +John M.
