Engage in Professional Growth and Leadership
Before this course, I was completely ignorant of the useful tools Google has to offer to anyone, but especially educators. After experimenting and practicing with Google apps, I can now create a more interactive classroom setting. The variety they offer assists teachers by providing new interaction tools between the teacher and student/parent and even teacher to teacher. First, I am able to collaborate and attain new ideas from other people in my field by using Gmail, Hangouts, and shareable Docs. In addition, I can add to my own knowledge about how to make lessons more engaging for students by examining what has worked for others and what has failed. All in all, I gained a wide variety of knowledge after completing the Google Educator Certification course.
