Google for Education - PLD by Ginette Van Praag

Google Educator Certification & Training

With more schools becoming Google Apps for Education (GAFE) schools, how are you preparing your teachers to be confident and make the most of these tools? A great way to evaluate your current skills and confidence with Google Apps for Education is to train for accreditation. 

Google has developed a certification programme to accredit GAFE practitioners. The training programme consists of practical activities and questions exploring core Google Apps commonly used in the classroom and culminates in an online examination.  Achievement entitles the practitioner to display their award as a badge on their CV and social networks. The Level 1 exam costs just $10 USD and certification is valid for two years.  

For more information watch the intro video below or visit the Google for Education Training Centre online. Sign in with your school GAFE account and you'll be able to save your progress. 

The VLN Primary School encourages all our eteachers to become GAFE accredited.
