Google Certified Educator Capacity Matrix (Level 1)
The Google Certified Educator program has a lot to offer educators who are looking to learn how to meaningfully use Google tools in the classroom and beyond. I have put together a capacity matrix to help teachers better understand the skills that are required to become a Level 1 Google Certified Educator. (Don’t worry! Level 2 is coming!)
If you have followed this blog for very long, you know that I am a fan of Google certifications. I have learned so much through the certification process, and I have seen the transformation of many other teachers and classrooms along the way. My goal is to help as many teachers as I can reach their goal of becoming Google certified.
With so many certifications to choose from, you may be confused. I have put together a FREE ebook to help you figure out which path is right for you: The Complete Guide to Google Certifications.
About the Capacity Matrix
One of the most common questions I receive about the Level 1 and Level 2 exams is, “What do you have to know?” So as I have been developing my new, online Google Certified Educator Academies, I have been developing this matrix. I have taken the content from the Google Training Center Fundamentals Course and create a capacity matrix. This matrix breaks down each skill, concept, and idea by topic and application, AND most skills are linked to how-to documentation from the Google Support Center. I wanted this resource to rely only on myself and the Google Support Center as the primary sources.
How to Use the Capacity Matrix
“A Capacity Matrix is a visual learning tool created by David Langford and Myron Tribus. It helps the learner to connect with the curriculum. Students understand what they need to know understand and be able to do. The learner and teacher use the matrix to monitor progress towards meaningful learning goals. These have been shown to have a major effect on learning (John Hattie (Visible Learning) and Robert Marzano (MCREL)).”
I used capacity matrices in my classroom and thought it would be a very useful tool for educators to connect to the Google Certified Educator curriculum, better understand what they need to know and be able to do, and see progress over time. Use this tool to help you self-assess what you already know and where you need to focus your study time. Use the links in the document as a reference to learn new material and review skills and videos.
Each application, tool, or concept is broken down by skill. Here you can use the check boxes to self-assess:
- Awareness: I’ve heard of this.
- Beginner: I can do this on my own.
- Intermediate: I can teach others.
- Advanced: I can apply this in my classroom.
