Google Certified Educator Level 1 Bootcamp
G Suite Educational Support Staff Bootcamp
AppsEvents Google Cloud Camp Curriculum

March 2 - 3, 2017 (Thursday & Friday*)

The AppsEvents Google Certified Educator Bootcamp is the fastest track to creating engaging learning experiences in the digital learning environment while becoming an official Google Certified Educator.

For educators, the new 'Certified Educator' courses are truly transformative in helping you incorporate Google tools in your teaching.  Rather than focusing on rote knowledge of apps the course and certification exam focuses on the practical application of the tools in the classroom. This day will focus on Educator Certification including a voucher.    Many that attend this training quickly become Google Certified Educators and are qualified to become Trainers or Innovators.  

*Exams are taken independently on Friday after BootCamp. However, you may opt to take the certification on a later date if you want to attend the Cloud Camp.

Following the Fundamentals Training, we will utilize Google Classroom for this professional development experience (learn what it is like to be a student for a day in Classroom!) with Hangout Chats, Documents, Slides, Sheets, Forms, Calendar, Keep G+ and YouTube.   We will get your testing account setup and apply your voucher so you are ready to take the exam within days of the Bootcamp.  Note:  Passing the test is not guaranteed.

Graduate Credit is now offered through the College of St. Joseph for only $150 per credit! Learn more.

The AppsEvents Support Staff Bootcamp allows non-teachers to take their G Suite skills to the next level. Designed for beginner to intermediate users, the day is made up of five sessions and culminates in an activity which allows the creation of something staff will be able to use the next day.

Session 1 - Level Up in Gmail, Hangouts and Calendar
Email getting you down? Calendar invites coming out of your ears? Learn how to be more organised in Gmail by organising and filtering unwanted email so that you can focus on what really matters. Find out tips and tricks for creating and managing events in Calendar to make your days run super smoothly.

Session 2 - Soar with Forms
Google Forms is always a favourite amongst educational support staff. In this session we’ll discover why they are truly transformative, as well as diving into added functionality to supercharge your existing Forms.

Session 3 - Get Geeky with Sheets
Spreadsheets can appear scary and daunting, but after this session you’ll feel like a pro. Find out about formulas like IMPORTRANGE to help you spend more time getting things done and less time copying and pasting.

Session 4 - Google Chrome and Extensions
Make your life easier by separating your work and personal accounts, as well as use some nifty extensions to add helpful features.

Session 5 - Create Something Today for Tomorrow
Use the skills you’ve learned today to create something awesome which will help in your day to day work from tomorrow! The trainer will help the whole group with their individual projects so that you get the most out of the bootcamp.
