Teacher Google Certification Training

    Central Unified has put together a team of teachers and support staff to lead school sites in technology professional development.  The goal is to build an internal network of master teachers who can support others at each school site.  Right now the team has 10 members who have all volunteered to join the group.  
    To build the capacity of the group to support teachers with Google in the classroom, members elected to try and get Google Certified.  Google has a program where educators can go through a series of training online, and in the end, take a certification test that shows their proof of mastery of the tools.
   On May 1st, the team met in one location and reviewed the study materials and lessons online.  Through support and teamwork, many were able to pass the test on the first try.  Congratulations to our new group of Google Certified Teachers.
