This course was extremely helpful with helping me become more comfortable using the chromebooks in my classroomp.m., Science Teacher
I believe this course was very valuable. There was a lot of information that we learned about that I feel I may not have heard about had it not been for this course.A.W., Elementary Teacher
Extremely beneficial!! I learned how to use the chromebook, google sites, and tools to use for my classroom. Loved it!C.C.
I thought this class was great. I learned so many useful things that I am already using in my classes and my classes haven't even started!K.A., Science Teacher
I learned a lot! Great course to take.R.Y., Special Education Teacher
The part that was valuable to me was having the opportunity to learn about the chromebook before my students will be getting it next year!J.B., Math Teacher
I will be more likely to incorporate some "flipped learning" in my math class.L.K., Math Teacher
I am taking away several tools and ideas that I will be able to use in my classroom right away this year!L.K., Math Teacher
Learning about the various things that a Chromebook can do versus a regular computer and playing around with the different Goggle pieces were very valuable. I was not overly familiar with everything that Google can do.K.B., Language Arts Teacher
I really enjoyed the face to face time with my professor and classmates, despite this being an online course. It was helpful to see his screen as he walked us through things on various websites and apps. I was very intimidated at first because I am a kindergarten teacher and we don't have Chromebooks at the elementary level. I had wondered if this class would really be of any value to me. I am pleased to say that I am walking away with a wide variety of new technology tools under my belt that I am eager to try in my classroom and share with my colleagues. I would highly recommend this class to my peers.S.S., Elementary Teacher
This course provided a strong foundation for my use of chromebooks and chromebook apps in the classroom. I received an abundance of information that I will be referring to often in the coming school year.D.M., Librarian
Excellent course with great insights into using Chromebooks in the classroom.N.K., Social Studies Teacher
I appreciated learning about the Google Suite materials. It was also interesting to learn about new programs available to me.B.L., Special Education Teacher
This course provided a lot of useful information and most of it could easily been taken back to the classroom the next dayP.M.
Jason was fabulous! He provided us with the tools we need to move forward in working with chromebooks and always gave quick, positive, and constructive feedback. This was my fourth eduspire course, and he was the best!B.N.
