I appreciated the insight on how I can rate educational technology I might implement into my classroom.A.G., Special Education 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
