I can help you become a Google Certified Educator. Becoming Google certified was a game-changer for my professional learning and my career. I want to help more teachers reach their goal of becoming Google Certified! My goal is to empower teachers to transform the learning in their classrooms and become digital leaders.
The Google Certified Educator Academies
Do you feel overwhelmed by the task? I have the e-course you have been waiting for! Consider this your online, self-paced, Google Certified Educator Boot Camp! I have taken the content, concepts, and skills needed to pass the Google Certified Educator exams and created a video-based course that includes EVERYTHING you need to know, including:
40+ Video Lessons (More than 11 hours of learning with me, Kasey Bell!)
Quick Glance at the Google Certified Educator Academy
Are you ready to get Google Certified? I can help!
The Google Certified Educator program can help you transform your classroom, save valuable time, facilitate digital learning with Google tools, increase professional growth, and become a digital leader!
Becoming Google Certified was one of the best decisions I ever made, and it transformed my learning and my career! This online self-paced course includes EVERYTHING you need to know to pass the Google Certified Educator Level 1 Exam.
40+ Video Lessons (More than 11 hours of learning with me, Kasey Bell!)
Private Google+ Community and Study Group
20+ PDF Downloads
and much more!
I have helped hundreds become Google Certified, and I know exactly what it takes to get there. This course is self-paced so you can learn when you have time and at your own pace. It's like having a trainer at your fingertips 24/7.
If you paid to attend a face-to-face boot camp, you would easily spend $299 or more for just two days of non-stop cramming. Make it easy on yourself, do this at your own pace. With an in-person training, it is just one-and-done!
Who is this course for?
The Google Certified Educator program was designed for the classroom teacher but is open for any educator to pursue.
Why take an online course?
Finding time to attend a Google Certification Boot Camp can be a challenge, and if you don’t have the support of your administrators it can be almost impossible to get time away from the classroom to pursue your dream of becoming a Google Education Certified Educator.
Even if you do get to attend a face-to-face boot camp, often times it is overwhelming and too much too fast. You probably had no idea what you signed up for!
This is why I decided to develop an online, self-paced course to help educators reach their goals and take their Google skills to the next level on their own time and at their own pace!

Testimonials! Here's what other teachers are saying:
“I am completing this course while trying to work around my children's busy summer schedules. I like that fact that it is self-paced, and I can access it at anytime. I also like how I can easily skip to certain sections. Great class! I really think this will help me as a teacher!”
- Amy Kennedy
“I have been wanting to become a Google Certified Educator for a while. I found this course, the contents and the organization of it all to be just what I needed to begin this learning process. The format is versatile, with features to help the participant personalize their own learning path and pace. I am loving this course!”
- Lesley Garcia
“This course is both informative and interesting. I like it better than the Fundamentals training that Google offers because it feels like I am learning from a real teacher who is sitting down with me and tutoring me. Kasey draws from her own experiences with students that gives me personal narratives to connect with the more how-to, technical information about Google products.
This isn't just about passing the GCE1 test! The VIP Bonus Material is like confetti that Kasey throws to expose teachers to the vast array of apps and "tricks" that I can use to make me a better teacher in an increasingly digital environment. No time to research the ocean of online resources? Let Kasey pass on all her hard work and learning to you!"
