Aligned with Google's Online Training, the goal is to help participants build upon existing knowledge and abilities to create and deliver effective professional development as a Google Certified Trainer.

GCT Applicants are already teachers and/or experience in education.  The GCT Bootcamp will help applicants channel skills to lead, engage, motivate, and teach others the application of G Suite tools to transform the way they teach.

The Google Certified Trainer Bootcamp will help individuals target the skills needed to successfully apply to the Google Certified Trainer Program .  As a result, participants will also develop confidence as a G Suite Specialist to make and deliver training either within or outside one's organization.

Media Mentor Month

Media Mentor Month is an initiative developed by Keri-Lee Beasley that challenges parents to become Media Mentors for children rather than a Media Police. 

It is a calendar with daily challenges, ideas, and/or strategies to help children develop a positive relationship with digital technologies.

The challenge is done every March but you can always start any time.

We first learned about Media Mentor Month through AppsEvents presenter, Sethi De Clercq on Twitter where he also shared a May calendar with activities aimed for very young children. Download it from here.

For a deeper look at the rationale behind the campaign, check out Keri-Lee’s blog.
