I thought this course was able to open my eyes to the many ways that a teacher and students can benefit from a Chromebook and also the many web tools that go along with them. I will be able to use the skills learned to enhance the instruction and experience of the overall classroom. I took this course for fun to learn more about a different technology, and feel it appeals to all levels. I have a degree in IT, Masters in Educational Technology, and my ITS certification, and thought this was a great class to continue building on prior knowledge and learning how to use and incorporate new tools.
