Kia Ora, Welcome!
My name is Ashley Schellingerhout, and this is my blog. I teach year 5/6 at Tamaki Primary School in Auckland. I am also a graduate of the 2016/17 Manaiakalani Digital Teachers Academy (MDTA) cohort, a CoL (Within school) teacher and part of Manaiakalani Google Class On Air for 2018.
(Digital Immersion day 3) Google Certified Teacher Level 1
Today is the day 3 of Digital Immersion and we are sitting the Google Exam (Level 1).
It is a end product for the Fundamentals course we did throughout summer and over the past few weeks.

The exam consists of 20 multi-choice/drag and drop type questions, then 11 scenarios. In each scenario, there are multiple tasks you have to complete. These scenarios take you through all different aspects of the Google for Education tools, including forms, sheets, calendar, docs, emails, classroom, etc. Even though I completed the Fundamentals course, I still learnt things for the first time as the exam walks you through step by step what it wants you to demonstrate.
Here is my certificate and the badge I can now add to my blog, emails etc.
