Google Apps for Education Certified Training offered by the EdTechTeam serves two purposes: to raise awareness about how Google Apps can be used in education (with students and among colleagues), and to prepare participants to pass the Google Apps for Education Qualification Tests. Each session includes an interactive overview, top tips from the Google Apps for Education Training Center, hands-on activities, and inspiring ideas for how to use Google Apps for teaching, learning, and professional collaboration. The activities are flexible, designed to help new users quickly understand the "core magic" of each app - and to challenge veteran users by revealing features and innovative uses they never imagined. The experience is grounded in Google culture, complete with high-energy fast-paced demonstrations and challenging activities that can truly be called "hard fun." There is no better preparation for teaching and learning with Google Apps - or for passing the Google Apps EDU tests.
During the second day of this two-day bootcamp, participants prepare their applications to become Google Apps for Education Certified Trainers. Certification is not included in the bootcamp (passing six tests, submitting an application, and approval from Google are required following the event). Taking tests and applying for certification is not necessary for participating in the bootcamp.
Led by Dr. Mark Wagner, former Director of the Google Teacher Academy, the EdTechTeam features dozens of Google Certified Teachers and Google Apps EDU Certified Trainers, including many who are veteran leaders at the Google Teacher Academy and who have helped author the Google Apps for Education Qualification Tests.
The bootcamp in Kuala Lumpur on March 9 & 10 t is lead by Wendy Gorton, Google Certified Teacher, Google Apps Certified Trainer, veteran lead learner at the Google Teacher Academy, and frequent reviewer of GTA and AppsCT applications. Wendy is also the Director of International Education for the EdTechTeam.

following a Google Bootcamp produced by the EdTechTeam:
This was a great day. I was engaged and inspired throughout the day.
Although I use Google a lot everyday, I learned a bunch of new stuff that I can use.
There was a lot of information jammed into today, however, it wasn't just the basic stuff.
I learned a lot of tips and tricks that I wasn't aware of before. Thanks!
This was wonderful! I now have so many new ideas that I am eager to take back and share with my colleagues. Thank you so much! Each presenter was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and able to answer all questions.
The bitter sweet is that this workshop is totally messing up my priorities. As a tech director I wasn't really planning on growing our use of Google Apps this year, but now I am going to re prioritize the rest of the summer and all of next year to incorporate more Google Apps. Thanks for the extra work :)
WOW! Information overload!
But am happy that I can go back through the bootcamp agenda and look overall that I learned in more detail.
Great Presentation! I have been a Gmail user since 2005 and had no clue some of these great things existed. Thanks!
It was exactly what I was looking for for my team of teachers!
Great job working with people at multiple levels and points of learning!
Amazing, brought to light some great ideas and ways to actually implement them into my classroom. This will allow me to not only become better organized in my classroom, but in my collection and organization of student work and feedback to them.
Thank you very much! I highly recommend this to any teacher who wishes to use technology more in depth in the classroom.
I have been to many, many workshops, and this is by far the most useful one I have ever attended. I will absolutely use this information and pass it on to my students.
This ranks at the very top of greatness for education workshops I've attended.
Thanks for teaching us to be outside the box!
The most valuable information that I learned here at the conference.
Great hands-on activities. Great job moving the experienced users of Google and awesome re-teaching of those that need more assistance. I felt I was working on my own little "cloud".
I wish I had more time!
