Is google pushing the envelope a little too much on this now ? I mean what is the point of having a 'teacher' immersing themselves in an innovative corporate environment, cutting-edge technolgies for what purpose ?? Will this really help the new gen userland ??

This is reminding me of the Pol Pot indoctrine methods ..ok thats just my opionion only!! :-

You have no idea. A while ago, there was the ECDL, European computer driving licence, and loads of teachers in Europe wanted to get certified. What did you hae to do? Master Winword, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, ... you get the picture.

"you get the picture." – Nope....

"The European Computer Driving LicenceĀ® (ECDL) is the internationally recognized qualification which enables people to demonstrate their competence in computer skills."

So what does that have to do with teaching and kids ??

To make the teachers look less retarded in front of the kids.
