Google has much to offer. Besides being a powerful search engine, here are some other resources, training, and certification that Google can aid you with.

  • MobileMind Training for Gsuite
 

We are excited to partner with MobileMind, a Google for EDU professional development partner, in an effort to allow you to personalize your Google learning to fit your own needs.  


With MobileMind you can choose micro-courses that meet your specific needs and interests.  This professional learning Chrome extension involves bite-sized instruction followed by hands-on challenges that can be completed anywhere at any time!  There’s something for everyone and every level; you simply create your own learning path as you learn... and earn badges along the way!  


Also since many districts are moving to Distance Learning due to COVID-19, MobileMind has created two new "certification goals" to help educators learn essential skills — Distance Learning 101 and Distance Learning 102.  


Distance Learning 101 includes the micro-courses that are foundational to reaching your students remotely.  If you are new to Google make this certification your priority. Completing this goal will ensure you have the essential knowledge to leverage G Suite for teaching your students remotely


Distance Learning 102 provides a more advanced track for experienced users of Google Tools.  Don’t be in a hurry to take this certification if you are new to Google.   There are some advanced concepts and functions within this group of courses.  You should absolutely complete Distance Learning 101 first. Even if you think you are advanced, we recommend doing these goals in order to ensure you are fully prepared.  


Please watch this short video to gain more insight into this exciting opportunity.


If you are interested in being selected to participate with the next cohort of teacher leaders, please send and email to bksmith@gocats.org.  After you register, keep an eye out for an email with instructions on how you will log in and begin your personalized Google professional development journey.
