In Today's Two Minute Timeout for Teachers I focus on puzzle pieces. We can become overwhelmed or frustrated in what we do when we think we have to be every piece our students need to complete their entire puzzle. I want to encourage you to embrace the puzzle piece that you are, instead of becoming overwhelmed by attempting to be every piece in the puzzle.

I chat a lot about Google Certification, but I haven’t taken a deep dive into it yet on the Shake Up Learning Show! Today, I’ll dig into what certifications there are, how to get them (and how hard it is), and what resources can help.

If you’re interested in becoming a Google Certified educator (level 1, level 2, trainer, or innovator), this is the episode for you!

And if you’re wondering why you should care or be interested, here’s a fun fact: this entire podcast wouldn’t exist if I hadn’t become Google Certified. Neither would my book. I wouldn’t be talking to you today if I hadn’t taken those steps!

Let’s dive in! First, I’ll explore what Level 1 certification means, and what you can expect from the test. I’ll then talk about some ways to prepare for the exam. I’ll then do the same for Level 2.

At that point, you might be wondering about the differences between the training that Google offers compared to my courses. Don’t worry, I’ll explain exactly how they’re different!

From there, I’ll talk about becoming a Google Certified Trainer. I’ll cover the various requirements (one of which I didn’t meet the first time I applied!) as well as the six steps to becoming a Certified Trainer.

I’ve helped thousands of people become Google Certified, and I can help you, too! I hope this episode has answered a lot of your questions and explained why the programs are so great, and I look forward to taking the next steps with you.
