teaching with technology

Google for Education Certification


I first started using Google apps back in 2005 when I switched from telstra.com webmail to Gmail. Once I started teaching ICT at primary school in Hong Kong I was hooked on Google, I attended an educational technology (edtech) workshop with David Warlick and this was the birth of my passion for all things related to edtech.

Over the years I promoted Google apps in my school to both students and teachers, as time progressed more and more people started adopting these amazing tools. I then joined various Google Education summits in Hong Kong and meant to get certification some years ago, but procrastinating got the better of me! But better late than never they say! Finally, I completed the Google Educator Level 1 Certification!

  1. Hi Stephen!

    Well done! I also completed the course recently and enjoyed blogging about it. I recommend doing the Level 2 course. I’m sure that you’re experienced enough with Google. Lots of new things to discover on the way. Read my experience here: https://mrhillmusings.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/google-certified-educator-level-2-the-journey-continues/

    I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    Happy New Year!
