This new summer class in St. Louis, Missouri, at Cooperating School Districts, is brought to you by the producers of the Google Teacher Academy, is a Google Workshop for Educators (GWE).
This class, taught by Google Certified Teachers Bill Bass, Cindy Lane, and Stephanie Madlinger, will introduce participants to innovative ways Google tools can be used in education. This full day of fast-paced presentations and hands-on activities includes experience with advanced search techniques, collaborative web-based applications, and inspirational instructional strategies. Google Certified Teachers share ways they’ve implemented tools such as Google Docs, Google Earth, Google Sites, and more. Participants who complete the event are given access to the Google Workshops for Educators Network (GWEN), an online community focused on supporting educators as they learn more about the power of Google to drive student learning.
(One Graduate Credit is available at an additional cost!)
The Virtual Learning Center congratulates Bill Bass and Stephanie Madlinger from the Parkway School District on their acceptance to the Google Teachers Academy Chicago this fall. Great news! They will join Lindbergh School District’s Cindy Lane this September in Illinois. According to the Google for Educators webpage, “The Google Teacher Academy is a FREE professional development experience designed to help K-12 educators get the most from innovative technologies. Each Academy is an intensive, one-day event where participants get hands-on experience with Google’s free products and other technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, receive resources to share with colleagues, and immerse themselves in an innovative corporate environment. Upon completion, Academy participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other K-12 educators in their local region.” We can’t wait to hear back on how the training goes!
