Google Teacher Academy back in Sydney
I was fortunate to attend the first Google Teacher Academy in Sydney in 2011. There I met 50 educators from all over the globe, while most were from Australia some made the trip from Europe and the USA. It was the most invigorating and exhaustive professional development I have ever attended in one and a half days.
Many of the people who attended those days in Sydney wrote about their experience.
If you are interested in applying then visit the website http://www.google.com.au/edu/teachers/google-teacher-academy.html
Applications are due by 28 February and the two days are 7-8 May, 2013
I would fully recommend applying for this experience. If accepted you join a vibrant community of educators across the globe sharing resources and practice.
