Google Level 1 Cohort
March 2 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Reserve your spot today and come join a Google Level 1 Cohort. We will meet virtually bi-monthly (every other week) from 3:30- 5:00 on Tuesdays. In this cohort, we will break down the Level one exam in smaller workshops and prepare you to take and pass the Level 1 Exam. Learn all the tricks and tips along the way as well. Learn, make new friends, and grow professionally. Each session will cover two different Google topics: Chrome and Slides, Drive and Docs, Gmail and Calendar, Classroom and Meet, Forms and Sheets, and finally YouTube and Sites.
The Level 1 Certification workshop will prepare participants to take the Google Educator Level 1 certification exam. Level 1 certification indicates a fundamental understanding of using Google Tools in the classroom and confirms standard technology implementation skills. Educators who pass the certification test will be able to advertise their status with a personal certificate and badge. Certification lasts 36 months.
Cohort schedule: March 2, 16, 30 and April 13, 27, and May 11 (must register for each session)
