At the school where I teach, we have been using Chromebooks for several years, and I initially had reservations about how much I would gain from the course. However, to my delight, the readings and the abundance of resources provided by Layla surpassed my expectations. It reignited my enthusiasm and I am now thrilled with the artifacts I've created, which I can confidently add to my MET portfolio, as well as the materials I've developed for my classroom.C.B., Elementary Teacher
This class provided opportunities for me to really become more familiar with my Chromebook, the extensions and apps it has to offer, as well as a wealth of online resources that I had never experienced before.C.P.

Learned a lot of useful information about integrating Chromebooks into my classroom. Appreciated the flexibility of structure that allowed me to address my specific curriculum.C.M., Art Teacher
As this was my first Eduspire course, I was very impressed at how much I have learned. I am the type of student that asks many questions when I don't understand something. I expected this to be the case with an online course because I was concerned at how detailed it would be. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much detail the instructor gave for his expectations with the course.L.H., Elementary Teacher
