Spotlight on a GEG leader : GEG Scotland
This month’s spotlight is all about Carla Bell the leader of GEG Scotland
How did you get involved with Google Educator Groups
The Scottish GEG was created by Eilidh McKay and last year she was looking to hand the reins over to someone else. My name was put forward and I was thrilled to be given this opportunity. I’ve been passionate about EdTech for many years as a result of being both a teacher and a parent of a dyslexic child. I have seen the positive difference that purposeful use of technology in an educational setting can do and I am keen to share this with others in the profession. Google and the GEG Communities have always been there to support me and I am keen to help others in the same way.

Why study alone when you can study with inspiring educators?
Technology should not be just another tool, a nice website or a fun online game. Integrating technology in our classrooms can be transformative and it engages our students at another level. As teachers we continue to play the most important role facilitating opportunities for impactful technology integration in the teaching and learning processes. This is why more teachers want to become Google Certified Educators. The study modules in the teacher centre are completely free and don't have to study alone. Your GEG friends and colleagues are here to help and inspire you. For the third time, GEG Guate is facilitating a study group for teachers who want to get their certification. Our awesome leaders and captains prepare interactive sessions and assign tasks for teachers to apply in their daily practice.
During the sessions, there is room to clarify doubts and support teachers who are either behind or beyond. The most important ingredient in these study groups is motivation. We are there to remind you that you are closer to your goal and to help you gain confidence for your certification exam. Furthermore, there is a lot of energy and good vibes in our GEG that will definitely help you make it to the finish line. This not only becomes a personal goal to accomplish but also an opportunity to network and acquire best practices from educators you did not know before.
