The window of opportunity has arrived for the next wave of what used to be called “Google Teacher Academy.” The application is now open for the new and improved program, “Google for Education Certified Innovators.” By far one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional career, I would love to see MANY more librarians in the mix. In my own opportunity (GTA-ATL14) there were four librarians out of the fifty participants. Let’s increase that!
We need to inundate Google with “Librarian” applicants! Librarians touch every facet of the curriculum and school program in most schools. So consider applying for the next Google for Education Certified Innovator Program (formerly known as the Google Teacher Academy)! And how awesome is it that this next one is at the main Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA?
