So How Do I....?I've had several colleagues ask how to become a Google Certified Teacher. First of all, I'd search "Google Teacher Academy" and "Google Certified Teacher" to find a wealth of reflective blogs that are much better written than this one. Then you can start at the very beginning: the official Google Teacher Academy page. After that, be sure to add +Google in Education to your Google+ circles so that their announcements will show up in your stream.
Then you apply. And apply. And apply.
The application itself is pretty straightforward. You'll want to check it out early and write up all your responses in a document you can save. The fun (read "ambiguous") part is the video. The video is on one of three topics. I chose "Classroom Innovation" for all of my entries. I applied four times but got in on my third. Sort of.
