The program is structured as a one day face to face course and then 50-60 hours distance learning spread over eight weeks. AppsEvents will be running the one day course as a summit pre certification track with the Bangkok Summit being the first summit to offer this course on the Friday before the summit. More information on the course can be found on the Information Sheet.
AppsEvents decided to partner with TICAL as this certification allows the user to heavily utilize Google in Education tools to complete the course, with the student creating their overall portfolio as a Google Site and using several Google Drive tools including Google Presentation to create a collaborative presentation with your peers and Google Docs to develop a comprehensive assessment plan for an online or blended environment.
AppsEvents also plans to start offering the other two Leading Edge Certifications in 2014: the ‘Leading Edge Certification for the Administrator’ which focuses on site, district, and regional leaders aligned to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Administrators and the ‘Leading Edge Certification for the Digital Educator’ which guides teachers through a curriculum based on the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Teachers. The program develops the skills necessary to develop a rigorous and relevant curriculum to support students in the digital-age through a project-based learning approach, infusion of technology, and promoting authentic learning in a physical classroom environment.
