I think I will be able to more effectively integrate edtech into my instruction.J.Z., Science 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 feel the part of this course that was most valuable was the weekly research assignment and the cost/benefit analysis activities.S.S., Elementary Teacher
Taking this class made me think about all types of technology that is available in education not just what I would think about using with students. I learned a lot about Artificial Intelligence and would not have learned about that on my own.C.P., Special Education Teacher

Jeff Mummert was always prepared. Things always made sense to me, so I didn't really need to ask for any help throughout the course.M.V.
It was really interesting to think about all the new technology out there that could be used in education. It was very useful to consider HOW tech is chosen for our schools and reflect on what we, personally, value.A.T., Elementary Teacher
Discovering the possibilities of future technology in a classroom by reading articles about what is out there for discussion .K.M.
This course helped guide me through ways to evaluate new technology and it's appropriateness for the classroom when it comes to budget and needs.H.H., Elementary Teacher
I really enjoyed the research parts of this class. I liked taking the topics covered in each module, researching for a similar topic, but related to my teaching position. The amount of work was reasonable and I liked the self-pacing of each module. This allowed me more flexibility to work on assignments as I had the time.A.C., Reading Specialist
It will help me utilize technology in a more impactful mannerH.M., Elementary Teacher
