Do we get a certificate for professional development after taking this class?

Guest 384
Kid Blog is great

Guest 384
How do you sign up your school to become google apps for education so you can have access to google classroom? I saw this online and was wondering if you can sign up as a single teacher. I do not know how you would do that.

EdTechTeacher
Hi Guest 384. We can make you a certificate. Please email kate@edtechteacher.org with your name and I can send one to you

Guest 384
Thanks

EdTechTeacher
Your school has to register with Google to gain a Google Apps for Education account. Its not for single teachers at this time.

EdTechTeacher
Do you have a tech department you can ask about registering? Its free for schools of certain sizes.

Guest 384
No

Guest 384
The teacher are pretty much their own tech people

Guest 384
I work for nyc

Guest 384
Minecraft is great for math

Guest 384
As well as Scratch Junior and Kodu Game Lab

Carl Hooker
You can submit for a GAFE here: http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/education/

Carl Hooker
If someone else in your district has already applied for GAFE, then it won't work

Carl Hooker
That's why usually you have a tech person/prinicpal/Supt as the one that applies to be a GAFE district/school

Guest 384
ok

EdTechTeacher
In a few minutes we will start taking questions, if you have any please ask here and we will try to get to as many as we can before the end of the hour.

Carl Hooker
Guest 384 - We have even seen Minecraft used in Humanities. Recreating historical places to scale

Patrick Larkin
