There are many reasons why YOU should become a Google Certified Educator!
Check out the infographic by Kasey Bell to see how this certification can help you to grow professionally!
The Level 1 Google Certified Educator status indicates that an educator can “successfully implement Google for Education into their teaching practice to enhance teaching and learning.”
This certification is for educators with a basic understanding of the core features of G Suite as well as an understanding of how to meaningfully use technology in the classroom.
The Level 2 Google Certified Educator status indicates “indicates that an educator can successfully integrate a wider range of Google for Education tools and other technologies to transform their teaching practice.”
This is for educators with a deeper understanding of G Suite and advanced technology integration skills.
(Note: Level 1 status is NOT a prerequisite for Level 2. You can skip Level 1 if you want, but it is not recommended.)
Whether you are a school’s go-to technologist, a stellar classroom teacher or an enterprising consultant, Certified Trainers are passionate about helping educators transform classrooms with technology.
By receiving this certification, Google's hope is that you will grow as a trainer by learning and building upon your abilities to create and deliver training plans.
Certified Innovators are ambassadors for change who empower other educators and students through a thriving innovation culture within their own classrooms, schools, and organizations. Innovation occurs at all levels in the school system, so Google welcomes applicants from all roles: classroom teachers to superintendents.
As participants in a community of educators working together to improve schools, Innovators will transform the organizations they’re serving, advocate for change, and grow their own capacity as thought leaders.
