July 5 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am


Reserve your spot today and join our Summer 2022 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.

Google Educator 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 will meet virtually in July 2022, on Tuesdays from 8:30-10:30 AM (see below for dates). All sessions will be recorded and shared with registrants. Participants will earn PD hours after each individual session, with the chance to earn a total of 8 PD hours (PD will not be awarded for viewing recorded sessions).
