GET Authorized Bootcamp (for Trainers)
Google Educator Trainer (GET) Train the Trainer (T3) Bootcamp serves two purposes: to raise awareness about how Google tools can be used in education to; ignite inquiry, promote collaboration, and allow for authentic publishing and sharing, (with students and among colleagues), and to prepare participants to pass the Google Educator Test and submit their application. Become a Google Educator to be recognized for your mastery. Each session includes an interactive overview, top tips from the Google Educator Training Center, hands-on activities, and inspiring ideas for how to use Google for teaching, learning, and professional collaboration. The activities are flexible, designed to help new users quickly understand the "core magic" of each app - and to challenge veteran users by revealing features and innovative uses they never imagined. The experience is grounded in Google culture, complete with high-energy fast-paced demonstrations and challenging activities that can truly be called "hard fun." There is no better preparation for teaching and learning with Google Apps - or for passing the Google Educator tests.
Certification is not included in the bootcamp (passing five tests, submitting an application, and approval from Google are required following the event). Taking tests and applying for certification is not necessary for participating in the bootcamp.
Google for Educational Leaders
This one-day experience is designed to inform, inspire, and empower educational leaders. Make the most of the free tools Google offers educational institutions. Understand the Google Apps suite, and how your support staff can manage student and teacher accounts. Be prepared to make decisions regarding the benefits (and limitations) of Chromebooks and Nexus devices. And learn which tools in the Google Apps Marketplace, the Chrome Web store, and Google Drive might best benefit your organization. This session also includes a segment focused on maximizing your own productivity with Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs, and more time-saving collaborative tools. Informed by case studies and best practices, this workshop is your best preparation for the two-day institute that follows.
