Summer 2021 Google Level 1 Certification Test Prep Cohort

July 6 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Reserve your spot today and join a Google Level 1 cohort! In this cohort, we will break down the Google Educator Level 1 exam into smaller workshops while preparing you to pass the Google Level 1 Certification Exam. Each session will cover different Google-related topics, including Chrome and Slides, Drive and Docs, Gmail and Calendar, Classroom and Meet, Forms and Sheets, and finally, YouTube and Sites and test prep tips.

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.

This cohort, cohosted by Lisa Schwartz and Holly Kelly, will meet virtually in July 2021 on Tuesdays and Thursdays (see below for dates and times). Don’t miss this chance to learn, make new friends, and grow professionally as a part of this exciting Google Level 1 cohort! The Cohort will provide a total of 9.5 PD hours. PD hours will be provided after each individual session. If you are unable to attend one of the sessions, the sessions will be recorded and shared with those that register (PD hours will not be issued for the individual session missed).
