how do I get started?
Go to the Training Center. Start under the "Training" tab and choose the path that best fits you. The training center is divided into Fundamentals training for Educator Level 1 or Advanced for Educator Level 2. You do not have to complete Level 1 in order to take Level 2.
Log in with your Gmail account. The Training Center will track your progress for you so you can work through the lessons at your own pace. Quizzes and reviews are built into lessons to check for understanding. You can go through the units in any order you choose and revisit lessons when necessary. The training center is more than just the "how"- it includes application, examples, and testimonials from teachers integrating tools into their classroom. After completing the modules in the Training Center, you can choose to take an online exam to obtain your certification.
