I began collecting data in 2019 as part of PhD, exploring if social media can be incorporated into pedagogy successfully. It was during this process that I discovered the Google for Education programmes. School leaders that I interviewed described their experiences of using technology in their classroom, and how their teachers were ‘Google Certified’. Some schools exclusively have Microsoft products so would opt for the Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) or Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE) route as a way to skill up their teachers. The main difference was that the link between technology and pedagogy was firmly established within the Google route, whereas schools that had Microsoft products would primarily use them for administrative tasks.
