This is an essential part of a MET program since the adoption of technology is essential to all districts.B.G., Math Teacher
Great course. Made me aware of new technology I can use in the classroom and helped me judge whether or not it would be successful in the classroomV.T., Language Arts Teacher
I don't really consider myself a very tech-savvy person, but through this course, I gained confidence and knowledge to explore various educational technology. Jeff Mummert is a very educated and experienced in technology. Jeff was helpful when I had trouble and very prompt in responding to messages. I would highly recommend this course for the novice and experienced educator exploring technology for the classroom.M.G.
Great course! Made me think about about many different concepts related to the future of education.J.A., Math Teacher
Being exposed to new edtech is always beneficial and this course did an excellent job of doing that. I particularly liked looking at edtech implementation from the multiple perspectives that this course presented. It's easy as a teacher to narrow your perspective to just your classroom. Appreciating the bigger picture is valuable and I think this course definitely helped me to gain that appreciation.J.Z., Science Teacher
I feel it will make me think more about the technology that I use in my class and help me to evaluate it.J.F., Music Teacher

The most valuable part of the course for me was exploring the various and most worthwhile technology that can be utilized in the classroom.M.G.
I anticipate using the critical cost/benefit analysis when considering future ed tech in my school/classrooms.S.S., Elementary Teacher
I really enjoyed the ability to look at education technology from the business point of view instead of the teacher perspective.J.W.
I really liked the way we created a rubric, then the pitch, then assessed based on our rubric. I would like to try something like that with my students.C.F., Language Arts Teacher
As with every Eduspire course, I learned information that I can take into my classroom.C.S., Math Teacher
