Google Teacher's Academy NYC- Nov 18th

Google announced their next Google Teacher's Academy to be held November 18th in New York City!

View the announcement here! Applications are due by October 10th so time is ticking!

The Google Teacher Academy is a FREE professional development experience designed to help K-12 educators get the most from innovative technologies. Each Academy is an intensive, one-day event where participants get hands-on experience with Google's free products and other technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, receive resources to share with colleagues, and immerse themselves in an innovative corporate environment. Upon completion, Academy participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other K-12 educators in their local region.

Google Turns 10!

Amazing to find out that Google is 10 years old! I don't know if that seems old or young. I can still remember a time before the internet, and a time before Google but was that really 10 years ago? You can check out the Google Timeline to find out all the greatest events in Google's 10 years.

In celebration of Google turning 10, Google wants to give away $10 million to people that have innovative ways of helping people. The projects that can help the most people will win!
