A Classroom without Walls – Google Teacher Academy Application

Educators in Australia are being given an opportunity to be certified as Google Teachers in an Academy that is coming to Sydney in March. Part of this process is to make a 1 minute video showing on either “Motivation and Learning” or “Classroom Innovation.”

I wish to thank @edsaid for telling me how to add videos to my wordpress blog. It is to much appreciated and I will now be able to add more engaging features to my posts with this knowledge.

Here is my movie reflecting some of the connections, global interactions and collaboration that has taken place beyond our classroom walls. It is very difficult to summarize in 1 minute some of the amazing activities that we have been involved in, but it gives the viewer a glimpse and hopefully a taste for more. If you are interested in applying, check out the Google Academy. Thank you to my wonderful personal learning network and global colleagues.

 

Special thanks go to:-

  • Zainuddin Zakariah and his IT class, SJK Taman Burkitt Maluri, Secondary School, Kuala Lumpur
  • Veronica Woo, SMK Poi Lam Sschool, Ipoh, Malaysia
  • Lorraine Leo, Massachusetts, USA
  • Alex Gustad, fellow staff and students, American School of Bombay
  • Purti Singh and her class from India

I also wish to sincerely thank Edna alias @whatedsaid for telling me how to add videos to my wordpress blog. It is so much appreciated and I will now be able to add more engaging features to my posts with this knowledge.

  1. Good luck. I had a go as well. It would be fun if we both got selected and we could eventually meet up!

  3. I can’t think of a more deserving applicant Anne! I’d love to have a go but I haven’t really done enough to warrant it just yet – maybe next year!

  4. Thank you for cometing my blog. I learned a lot from you and Teacher Blog Challenge. Thanks!

  5. @allanphoto I hope we do both get in, as I would love to meet you face to face but with so few being selected, it will be quite difficult to get in. However, I am a great fan of google and would love to learn more about it and its use within the classroom
    @Pam Thank you for your words of support. I hope they do come back again next year and that you do have a go, as you look like you are about to embark on a really exciting year.
    @Natasa It has been wonderful meeting you and working with you on the “Kick Start Your Blog” Teacher Challenge. I have learnt so much from all of you.
