Local Educator to Become ‘Google Certified’ at Google Teacher Academy

Walnut Creek, CA, May 30, 2014 — Google tm has selected Allison Mollica as an attendee at the next Google Teacher Academy, to be held in Mountain View, CA on July 30-31, 2014.

The Google Teacher Academy is a two-day intensive program that recognizes educators who are doing innovative and exciting things in their classrooms with technology. Allison Mollica was honored to be selected and represent Virtual Learning Academy Charter School in Exeter, NH.

35 participants will get hands-on experience with Google’s products and technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, and receive resources to share with colleagues. Upon completion, Academy participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other educators in their local regions and beyond.

Google Certified Teachers are exceptional educators with a passion for using innovative tools to improve teaching and learning, as well as creative leaders and ambassadors for change. They are recognized experts and widely admired for their commitment to high expectations for students, lifelong learning and collaboration.

The topic of integrating technology into education is a controversial yet vital conversation we all need to be having. If you are interested, Allison Mollica would be thrilled to share his/her experience at the Google Teacher Academy with your readers.

The Google Certified Teacher program was launched in 2006 with the first Academy held at Google headquarters in Mountain View. The program has since held academies across the US, Australia, and U.K., expanding the ranks of Google Certified Teachers to over 800 educators worldwide. The Google Teacher Academy is produced by Google, in collaboration with Computer-Using Educators (CUE, Inc), an educational non-profit organization.
