    Hi All -

    This group is solely for sharing stuff related to using Google tools in classrooms. If items are posted here that seem off topic, I will delete them from the group. If you are the original poster, it will not be deleted from your Diigo library. If a group member consistently posts items not related to our theme, I will remove them from the group.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Everyone -

    I have noticed a slew of non-Google in Education links being posted to this group. In some cases, it appears that someone accidentally did this; in others, it seems like deliberate spam. I've questioned several entries in the comments; please respond there or else I will simply delete the links in question in the next few weeks.

    If you notice any links or inappropriate posts by users, please let me know and I'll take care of things.

    Thanks,

    Lucy Gray

    Google Teacher Academy - Chicago
    Chicago, IL
    September 24, 2008

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Applications Due: August 24, 2008

    --------------------------------------------------------
    We are pleased to announce that another round of Google's FREE training program for K-12 educators is coming to the windy city! Outstanding educators from around the world are encouraged to apply for the Google Teacher Academy taking place on Wednesday, September 24, 2008.

    The GTA is an intensive, one-day event (8:30am-7:30pm) where participants get hands-on experience with Google's free products and other technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, collaborate with exceptional educators, and immerse themselves in an innovative corporate environment. Upon completion, GTA participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other K-12 educators in their local region.

    50 outstanding educators from around the world will be selected to attend the GTA based on their passion for teaching, their experience as leaders, and their use of technology in K-12 settings. Each applicant is REQUIRED to produce and submit an original one-minute video on either of the following topics: "Motivation and Learning" or "Classroom Innovation." Applications for the event in Chicago are due on August 24, 2008. If possible, please use Google Video or YouTube to post these original videos. Participants must provide their own travel, and if necessary, their own lodging. Though we will give preference to K-12 educators within a 90-minute local commute of an Academy event, anyone may apply.

    Learn more about the program and the application at http://www.google.com/educators/gta.html

    The GTAs have been a wonderful experience for everyone involved, with 97% of all attendees rating the GTA as "outstanding."

    Here are a few quotes from GTA participants:
    ----------------------------------------
    "The academy was everything I hoped for and more! I can't wait to plan out ways to use the tools we learned about, to share my experiences with my colleagues and to re-connect with the other academy participants!"
    ----------------------------------------
    "The focus on innovation in education, and not just about the tools, was right on target."
    ----------------------------------------
    "I appreciate the opportunity to be connected to a group of educators that are passionate about preparing students for the 21st century. I feel inspired and able to meet the challenges that lie ahead!"
    ----------------------------------------
    "Until now, I had never attended a conference where I was so engaged and loving every minute of it."
    ----------------------------------------
    "This was easily the most important professional development experience I have ever had as an educator. World-class tools demonstrated by world-class people at a world-class facility. THANK YOU!"
    ----------------------------------------
    "I love [the Google Certified Teacher community] for the ideas and inspiration that comes flowing to and from it...folks share professional development strategies (technology or otherwise) that have worked. It's nice to have a variety of ways to assist others and having that variety also provides spice for those of us responsible for doing the providing."
    ----------------------------------------

    Feel free to send any questions to "gteachers@gmail.com", and please spread the word to anyone who may be interested in joining us.

    We're looking forward to another great event!
