Digital platforms are generating the most significant advances in global educational innovation. The global pandemic of Covid-19 is accelerating the expansion of digital platforms in education. Google is the technology corporation that, through Google for Education, is leading educational innovation through its digital platforms. In this context, the objective of this article is to analyze innovation in educational practices and teacher training through Google's digital platforms. From a qualitative approach based on the implementation of a digital ethnography and a technography, eight Google websites related to teacher training and data have been analyzed in depth. The results of the study show that, through the Classroom API (1) new techno-educational control processes are being generated, (2) new extractive dynamics of data and (3) new relationships are forming with the technology industry. Alongside this, it is observed that teacher training for techno-educational innovation in Google is based on pyramidal professional development, through teaching certifications, and on "Google educational communities" that are self-formed and expand the tools and market logics of this technology corporation.
