John Dalziel's insight:
Google for Education Training Centre is an platform for Educational Practitioners' Professional Development. It provides a wide variety of... 
► educational resources, 
► lesson plans, 
► training guides, and 
► tutorials 
...to help educators make the best of Google tools in their instruction as well as in their professional progression. 
The Education Training centre provides two main courses... 
► Fundamentals Training and 
► Advanced Training. 
The earlier is designed for practitioners who are new to Google tools and the latter is for those who are already familiar with Google tools and use it routinely in their Learning Environments. Before taking any of these courses make sure you are signed in to a Google Apps for Education account (https://www.google.com/a/signup/?enterprise_product=GOOGLE.EDU#0) so you can track your progress to see where you are in your training and, when you compete the modules, you can print a certification credit showing your achievement. 
Content is arranged into three main themes... 
► Engage in professional growth and leadership, 
► Increase efficiency and save time, 
► Facilitate and inspire students learning and creativity.
