The basic functions of Google Drive and Google Classroom are only the starting point for the innovative and creative uses one can use in the classroom. Alice Keeler, my co-author in our upcoming book Ditch That Homework, proves that again and again. Alice is one of the only people I know personally who codes for […]
Google Forms is a great tool for surveying others and collecting data from them. By using Forms in that way, it can save us tons of time. It can save us even more time when we survey ourselves. I can hear your response to that one … Wait, Matt … survey ourselves? Have you gone […]
I have a confession to make. I’m heavily invested in Google, being a Google Certified Innovator, using Google tools all the time and suggesting them to teachers. (No, that’s not the confession yet …) I’ve had great things to say about so many Google products over the years. Except one: Google Sites. I think “despise” […]
One huge drawback of using Google Classroom has been the inflexibility of creating assignments. Everything you assigned had to go to every student. Deliver assignments to small groups? Ha! Differentiate to subsets of students? Nah. Until now. Google announced a few changes to Google Classroom, and this one was the bombshell: assign activities to small […]
I love listening to podcasts. They’re kind like personalized radio. I can pick shows that I like and listen to them whenever I want. Podcasts have been a driving force for me in becoming a better educator. I’ve listened to hours of them while driving, exercising or cutting the grass. I can take that down time […]
Students and teachers are doing amazing things with Google tools in the classroom. They’re collaborating. They’re creating. They’re sharing. They’re doing things that would be pretty tough — or impossible — without those tools. Some people look at all that innovation and think, “That’s all well and good … but I can’t dream up all […]
I’m excited to present at the Google Technology Conference in Vandalia, IL!
Infographics are everywhere. I first started noticing them on the front page of USA Today as a journalism major in college. As Pinterest became more popular, the long, tall infographics have begun popping up everywhere. There’s a reason you see infographics all over social media and beyond: They’re eye-catching. They summarize information succinctly. They’re very visual, […]

Who is this course for?
This course is designed for educators who deliver training and professional development to teachers, or those who wish to become trainers and consultants, and who have a goal to become Google Education Certified Trainers.
This is an advanced course with a focus on best practices for trainers with the purpose of passing the Trainer Skills Assessment and applying to become Google Education Certified Trainers.
Those who are looking to learn more about G Suite for Education and take their knowledge to an advanced level can also benefit, but keep in mind the goal of this course is to help educators become certified.
Why take an online course?
Finding time to attend a Google Certification Boot Camp can be a challenge, and if you don’t have the support of your administrators it can be almost impossible to get time away from the classroom to pursue your dream of becoming a Google Education Certified Trainer.
Even if you do get to attend a face-to-face boot camp, often times it is overwhelming and too much too fast. You probably had no idea what you signed up for!
This is why I decided to develop an online, self-paced course to help educators reach their goals and take their Google skills to the next level on their own time and at their own pace!
The VIP version of this course includes 3 BONUS Lessons!
Best Practices for Trainers
How to Market Yourself as a Trainer
Tips and Advice from Experienced Google Certified Trainers
**Note: Shake Up Learning and Kasey Bell do NOT grant certifications. Certifications come directly from Google through a competitive application process.
