CHAMPAIGN, DECEMBER 15, 2020 — The Learning Technology Center of Illinois (LTC) is proud to announce its recent acceptance into the Google Cloud Partner Program.
Through this program, the LTC will receive access to early-adopter information, priority access to new services, staff training, and further partnership opportunities. These benefits will be leveraged to support the 85% of Illinois school districts that utilize Google products to support student learning and district operations.
“We’re very excited to join Google as a new partner” says Tim McIlvain, LTC Executive Director, “We believe that this partnership is a reflection of the needs of Illinois schools and our work to support their staff and students.”
Nearly 50% of the LTC’s professional learning opportunities in 2019 focused on Google applications and related services. “We anticipate a continuation of this high demand,” McIlvain indicated, “A strong connection with Google will allow us to better meet this growing need among Illinois schools and districts.”
As this new partnership begins, the LTC continues to offer routine professional learning opportunities on Google-related topics. To learn more about the LTC’s upcoming Google events, check out our Events calendar.
The LTC also offers in-district learning opportunities on Google-related topics through its network of Regional Educational Technology Coordinators (RETCs). To learn more or to schedule a consultation, contact your region’s RETC.
