Meet the Expert

Brooke Lowery, M.Ed.

Brooke is an experienced Elementary and Middle School classroom educator and expert digital learning facilitator. She credits her own teaching transformation to the work she’s done with reluctant learners. Finding new ways to reach them influenced Brooke to reshape her classroom into a mixed media learning environment, which eventually led her into working with teachers full time. Brooke strives to help educators create engaging and technology-rich learning experiences for their own classrooms. Brooke has such a natural, approachable style, everyone that has ever met her feels like her best friend!
Brooke is a Google Level 1 & Level 2 Certified Educator and a Google Certified Trainer.

Meet the Designer

Lauren Heil

Lauren’s career actually started in graphic design and art direction. When she found herself craving a more fulfilling path, she started exploring the world of education and fell in love. As it turns out, great design and great teaching go hand in hand! This became her mission in her classroom as a Google Innovator, and it quickly grew to her district and other schools within the US when we all quickly shifted to distance learning. She is such an asset to the friEdOnline team as a Learning Experience Designer creating useful, engaging asynchronous learning opportunities. Lauren lives with her husband, daughter and her sweet dog in beautiful Colorado!
Lauren is a Google Level 1 & Level 2 Certified Educator, Google Certified Innovator, and a Adobe Certified Educator.
This was a very user friendly course. It was easy to follow and understand. I would definitely recommend to anyone who was in the same boat as me. I learned so so much about Google Classroom.
I thought this course was going to be boring since I am already familiar with Google Classroom. However, there was so much more to Google Classroom that I did not know I was missing out on!
