Interested in Becoming a Google Educator? Here's How...

The schedule for the 2014 Google Teacher Academy has been posted HERE,  and if you are interested, Google suggests that you first become a Google Educator before applying. Courses are done on your own and exams for each cost are around $15.00 each. When you have passed the exams, you are then considered a Google Educator and will receive the Google Educator certificate.
