AppsEvents : Certified Google Admin Course
http://bit.ly/1yLQCzE
AppsEvents Certified Google Admin Course – Level 1 (Fully online)
The ‘AppsEvents Certified Admin’ (ACA) is an entry level certification and focused on getting educators with basic or no admin experience to ‘level up’ and be able to administer a live Google Apps Domain. It’s equally focused on teaching and non teaching staff and one of the reasons we started the program was to help with the democratization of IT admin and helping more teachers to get involved.
Based on our experience hosting over 100 ‘in person’ admin sessions at schools across the world we designed the certification to be completely education focused and responsive to the demands of what is actually required to administer a Google Apps domain with teacher and student users day in day out.

Support Teachers Skeptical Of Technology

5 Ways To Support Teachers Skeptical Of Technology
For some, the technology rich classroom is easy to justify. Once you have made the transition and seen the benefits, it is easy to weigh them against the potential risks and worries about the problems resulting from having a room full of devices.
There are reasons that veteran teachers SHOULD be questioning new initiatives and putting them to the “This Too Shall Pass” acid test, crunching the numbers on whether investing in technology will be time well spent. It is part of the reality of being a teacher. As a result, once training begins, there can be problems.

Open, collaborative, focused discussion can open and expand minds. But let's not stop there- let's harness this wisdom of the many to crowdsource possible solutions to some of the major issues that are uncovered...

To view the conversation use a Twitter search App and search for the hash tag #edchat
To take part just Tweet as normal and add the tag #edchat to your Tweet.
It's a bit like having an online conversation in the school lunch hall ... but there are alway great resources and links flying around.

TPACK : Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
http://tpack.org/
TPCK - Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) attempts to capture some of the essential qualities of knowledge required by teachers for technology integration in their teaching, while addressing the complex, multifaceted and situated nature of teacher knowledge.
At the heart of the TPACK framework, is the complex interplay of three primary forms of knowledge: Content (CK), Pedagogy (PK), and Technology (TK). See Figure above. As must be clear, the TPACK framework builds on Shulman's idea of Pedagogical Content Knowledge.

Understanding Computers and the Internet

Harvard Extension School's Computer Science E-1: Understanding Computers and the Internet
Free Computer Science Course : in English, Chinese or Turkish
This course is all about understanding: understanding what's going on inside your computer when you flip on the switch, why tech support has you constantly rebooting your computer, how everything you do on the Internet can be watched by others, and how your computer can become infected with a worm just by turning it on.
In this course we demystify computers and the Internet, along with their jargon, so that students understand not only what they can do with each but also how it all works and why. Students leave this course armed with a new vocabulary and equipped for further exploration of computers and the Internet. Topics include hardware, software, the Internet, multimedia, security, website development, programming, and dotcoms.
This course is designed both for those with little, if any, computer experience and for those who use a computer every day.

For that reason, we'd like to extend the programme to anyone interested via a podcast. For each new lecture delivered, we will record and add to the RM Education Lecture podcast (where the speaker has granted us permission to do so).
