From my friend Lucy Gray, who's a big fan of the Google Teachers Academy:
past few years, and I know that a Google Teachers Academy will likely
becoming to Chicago this fall as well, but nothing beats seeing their
extraordinary headquarters up close and personal, or so I am told!
"The GTA provides training several times a year for teacher leaders
on using Google Apps in classrooms. The next GTA will take place in
Mountain View, Califorinia, in June at the company's headquarters,
known to some as the Googleplex.The application process to participate
in the Google Teachers Academy and to become a Google Certified Teacher
is fairly straightforward, but competitive. For additional details and
an application, visit http://www.google.com/educators
Also, note that Google has also announced today a new site for teachers called Geo Education http://www.google.com/educators
Geo Education provides all sorts of materials for incorporating Google
Earth, Google Maps, Google Sky, and Google SketchUp into classroom
Please let us know if there's anything else going on that you'd recommend.
