Just before the holidays I wrote a post here about the upcoming Google Teacher Academy for Administrators, and the conversations that had broken out on Twitter and blogs about the offering. I would be remiss if I did not post a link to Mark Wagner’s thoughtful response in his Educational Technology and Life blog which you can read here.
From the original post on this blog:
Google has announced a Google Teacher Academy for Administrators in San Antonio, TX in March 5, 2010. The deadline for application is January 25, 2010. Here is the announcement from the website -”The Google Teacher Academy for Administrators is a FREE professional development experience designed to help K-12 educational leaders get the most from innovative technologies. Each Academy is an intensive, one-day event where participants get hands-on experience with Google’s free products and other technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, receive resources to share with colleagues, and learn how to apply examples from our innovative corporate environment. Upon completion, Academy participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other K-12 educators in their local region – and around the world. This GTA will be held in San Antonio, Texas, right before the ASCD conference. If you’re already planning to attend ASCD, we hope you’ll also consider applying to the GTA for Administrators.”
