I’m thrilled to share that in honor of Teacher Appreciation Day yesterday, Google announced the next Google Teacher Academy last night. I hope many of you will apply. Here are the details:
In support of National Teacher Day, we’d like to announce that applications are open for our next Google Teacher Academy, which will take place in our Boulder, Colorado office on Wednesday, August 5th. The Google Teacher Academy is a free professional development experience designed to help K-12 educators get the most from innovative technologies. Each academy is an intensive, one-day event where participants get hands-on experience with Google’s free products, which will help you bring communication, collaboration and fun into your classrooms. Teachers will also learn about innovative instructional strategies, receive resources to share with colleagues, and immerse themselves in an innovative corporate environment. Upon completion, participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other K-12 educators in their local region. Applications are due Friday, July 3rd.
I’m doubly thrilled that CUE will once again be producing the event and that in my role as professional development coordinator, I’ll be leading the project. I’m most thankful, though, to be a part of the Google Certified Teacher community, which is the most active and generous online community I’ve ever been a part of… and I hope that many of you will apply to join us in Boulder and in the online community. Good luck if you decide to apply!
And of course, please leave questions or comments about the event below. :)
