This two day workshop is for educators who are comfortable using G Suite (Google Apps for Education) and want to prepare for the Level 1 Certified Educator exam. The Level 1 certification is ideal for teachers who want to integrate more technology in their classroom. We will cover the themes and tools required to take the exam. Certification is not complete until each participant successfully completes the exam, on their own time after these sessions. This workshop has pathways for both administrators and teachers.

Participants will…

  • have a fun, collaborative hands-on experience
  • meet other educators and leaders from surrounding districts and learn from each other
  • be encouraged to explore, take risks and experiment
