The newest Google Teacher Academy is going to be held in Boudler, Colorado on August 5, 2009! Applications are due by midnight on July 3rd.
The Google Teacher Academy is a wonderful, FREE, opportunity to meet and collaborate with educators from all over the country- and world! It is also an opportunity to learn about all that google has to offer educators.
More information is located at Google’s Teacher Academy site. The application process includes a written application as well as a video application.
When I applied, I was so nervous about the video application. I had never really created a video and wasn’t even sure what tools to use. Since creating that video, I have gone on to create many more. If you would like some inspiration, here is my video as well as several others. All of these people were selected to attend the Mountain View, California Google Teacher Academy last June.
