Google Certified Educator Level 2 is for students who want to prove that they are advanced users with expertise in using Google classroom tools. Google for Education designed the GCEL2 to go deeper than GCEL1 in understanding how the apps integrate to enhance learning and productivity.

Free online tutorials and support information are provided through the Google for Educators website, YouTube tutorials, and online resources. The exam is composed of objective test questions and allows online access. An outside entity provides the exam at a nominal fee. The exam can be taken multiple times. Students with a current GCEL2 certificate are not required to take the exam. Previous GCLE1 certification is not a requirement.

GCEL2 can be taken for 2 or 3 units. The third unit includes hands-on assignments using Google Apps to create interactive individualized curriculum. Docs and Slides are the platforms for creating interactive documents and choice boards that incorporate many resources. This course supports national, state, and local standards and does not require student access. To find out more information about becoming a GCEL2 go online to the Google for Education Training Center.

This course is applicable towards the Technology Skills for Educators Certificate.

I feel so blessed to have had a job that I totally loved to do each and every day. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching elementary aged students for the past 38 years. I liked not only working with the children, but their families as well. I have made many lifelong connections with many of them. As a teacher, it is such a rewarding feeling to see my students “light come on” and see them understand the objective of the lesson. I was also very fond of working with other teachers and administrators and helping them understand and learn about technology. I always liked integrating technology into my lessons and helping others do the same. This really makes lessons come to life. All my FPU courses are very helpful for teachers to learn how to integrate technology into their classroom lessons. Working with my FPU students is great because they really want to learn and use what they have learned to make their classroom lessons so much better and more meaningful for their students.
