The Google for Education team is looking for the most creative minds in education who empower other educators and students. We're looking for leaders who are excited to drive transformation, advocate for innovative technologies, and grow professionally. The Certified Innovator program is a 12-month professional development experience -- including mentorship, online learning activities, and a face-to-face Innovation Academy focused on helping new Innovators launch a transformative project.
HOW CAN I JOIN
Our application process is designed for you to show off the things that make you an innovative educator. While the program is much more than our products, having a solid background in how to integrate Google for Education technologies in the classroom is an important starting point for inspiring transformative change. Take the Advanced course and Google Certified Educator Level 2 exam prior to applying.
During the application process, we’ll ask you to share your vision to transform education. You’ll need to share this vision via a video and also through a vision deck. This is an opportunity to share your initial vision for an innovative solution to a current challenge in education at any scale: from classroom concerns to global issues. Please articulate the challenge you hope to solve, and explain your idea for an innovative solution. If you are selected to participate in the Innovator Program and attend the Innovation Academy, you will have the opportunity to iterate on this initial vision, so please focus more on exploring new possibilities with great potential rather than fleshing out a complete solution you're already confident in.

Description of Ideal Candidate:
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
Candidates for the Google for Education Certified Innovator program are selected based on their professional experience, their passion for teaching and learning, their innovative use of technology in school settings and their potential impact on other educators. They are ambassadors for change who empower other educators and students through a thriving innovation culture within their own classrooms, schools and organizations.
Innovation occurs at all levels in the school system, so we welcome applicants from all roles: classroom teachers to superintendents. As participants in a community of educators working together to improve schools, Innovators will transform the organizations they’re serving, advocate for change, and grow their own capacity as thought leaders.
