Danny wasn’t happy with just being a GCT so he went out and became a Google Apps Certified Trainer. I didn’t want fan boy status, so I’m only a Google Apps Qualified Individual. Check out http://edutraining.googleapps.com/ for more info on getting certified. And check out these tech resources for CA educators – Calaxy and MyBOE.org. And of course we talk about Jim Klein’s ubermix and Jon Corippo & Minarets High School.
