Google Certified Educator Level 2
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.
