Opennetworks - opening my mind
Professional development training, Opennetworks
My two-day boot camp as a Level 1 Google classroom teacher, blew my mind. I love teaching and usually go to work motivated and excited, but this took me to the next level. They showed me how to be a 21st-century teacher, someone who can keep up with the times and can relate to and motivate generation z-learners. I was surprised at how easy it was to communicate with parents and fellow teachers. I am not a techno guru and still, I was totally amazed at what I learned in the few days. Thank you Opennetworks for opening my mind and opening my mind to so many new possibilities

Review on google classroom course 1

The course was really good. I learned a lot and the lady who presented the course knew exactly what she was doing and talking about which was great. I would definitely tell others to go. The food was also great :)

Learning new Google tricks with the help of Opennetworks
Professional development training, Opennetworks
I attended the Level 1 Google Educator crash course on 14 and 15 February 2019. As a teacher, I am committed to life-long learning so when this course arrived in my inbox, I just had to accept. The course exceeded my expectations. Barbara Brand was the trainer. Her extensive knowledge, passionate teaching and pure patience towards me and the other 'learners' in the classroom were exceptional. Attending this course has impacted not only my teaching life but also my personal life dramatically. I finally understand and know how to use the incredible programs that Google has designed. Opennetworks is user-friendly and always up-to-date. Could I ask for anything better? Probably not. Would I consider doing another course through Opennetworks? Without a doubt - YES!

Google level 1 Training course
Professional development training, Opennetworks
I had the privilege of attending a Google Educator Level 1 course at my school, St Dunstan's College. The instructors were excellent and taught me so much. The time flew by and I hardly noticed the long hours that it involved. Both instructors were experts in their field and worked so well as a team. It was worth every cent paid. I now feel that I am more confident in using Google in my classroom and left the course motivated to implement what I learned.

I received professional and outstanding support through the 2-day boot camp. Just when I thought I knew it all, I learned so much more. The group was perfectly sized, and the staff was friendly and comforting. I definitely plan to do my level 2 before the end of the year. I highly recommend this team to anyone.

Google Level 1 Educator
Professional development training, Opennetworks
The company is amazingly professional and everything just works. The training was really good. I learned so much as I hadn't used the majority of the Google applications before. Since the course, I have used it extensively and it has totally changed the way I operate making my life so much easier. I can do absolutely everything I need to from my smartphone and everything syncs. I have recommended this course to all my friends and colleagues as I feel that they would really benefit from it. I'd like to say a huge big thank you to Barbara who was so patient with me and explained and demonstrated the product and its benefits so well. Well done. I love Google.

Outstanding Opennetworks
Professional development training, Opennetworks
I recently attended at Google Level 1 Educator Bootcamp with Opennetworks. Barbara did a wonderful job; going through the content systematically and ensuring that all Bootcamp members understood what she was explaining. She did a great job as a facilitator as well, engaging all members in the conversations and making it a fun and interactive experience for all. During the exam time, I felt at ease knowing that she supported us through the Bootcamp process. A wonderful experience and I would happily recommend it.

A professional and innovative Edu space company
Professional development training, Opennetworks
I have had the pleasure of working with Opennetworks for my school's training and Chrome hardware requirements for the last three years now. They are always willing and ready to help in CPTD and or training issues relating to innovative 21st-century education solutions. While specialising in Google suite for Education (Gsuite) training for both the education and business environment, they also help with general creative and innovative ideas and topics in the education space. After sales service for Chrome hardware has been excellent. I would recommend Opennetworks for any Gsuite and innovation training and Chrome hardware procurement.
