Experience of congruence: Description of a good or bad example

Google Certified Educator Level 1

Last year, in order to develop my expertise in Google, I took the Google Certified Educator Level 1. I found this to be a good example of congruence in education. From the onset it clearly explained what the course was, who it was aimed at and how it could be assessed. It divided it into 3 easy steps:

 

Training

Welcome to Fundamentals training. By reading, watching videos, and doing activities, you’ll learn how to integrate Google in your classroom. You can start and stop lessons at any time; we’ll track your progress through the course. At the end of this course, you’ll be ready to take the exam to become a Google Certified Educator Level 1.

There were 13 units to cover and when training had been completed, it was easy to see what had been assessed and keep up to date with progress.

 

Practice

After the training there were sample exam questions to complete.

Get Certified

Once you were confident with applying these skills in the classroom, you were invited to complete the test.

 

Overall I found the whole experience really clear, easy to follow and the training enabled me to apply these skills to my own practice. Trialing things in the classroom and then being assessed on their use and practical implications was extremely transparent and linked to the outcomes from the start.

  1. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been doing a little research on this. And he actually bought me breakfast because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this issue here on your internet site.

  2. Excellent post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I
    am impressed! Extremely helpful info particularly the remaining part
    🙂 I take care of such information much. I was looking for this certain information for
    a long time. Thanks and best of luck.

  3. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Thanks

  4. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any points for first-time blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
