The Kentucky Google Educator Group is a community of educators across the Commonwealth who inspire and empower each other to meet the needs of students through technology.

What are GEGs?

GEGs, or Google Educator Groups, are communities of educators who share, inspire and empower each other to meet the needs of students through technology solutions, both in the classroom and beyond. Google believes that the best inspiration to educators are other educators. It is for this reason that Google helped start the GEG community and GEGs are run independently of Google by educators, for educators.

What form do GEGs take?

GEG activities take place both online and offline. Online GEGs provide a space for educators to discuss together and learn about one another; offline, the locally run events or meetups are then a way to learn and share face to face. At GEG meetups you will physically come together with other educators who are interested and passionate about discovering new ways to meet the needs of students by leveraging innovative technology solutions. 

How can I get involved?

Just attend any of the GEG-organized events online or face to face and you’re involved. If you have fun you can continue to go back to more events and follow the group on Google+. Follow the four steps on this welcome page, and you're in! Some GEGs are targeted within specific school networks, while others are organized geographically and composed of educators from a variety of school networks. All GEG events are supposed to be free of charge and open to anyone.

GEGs are for any educator who is passionate about meeting the needs of their students through technology solutions and collaborating with other educators who feel the same way.
