I will think much more deeply about choosing technology to use in my classroom.A.T., Elementary Teacher
The technology evaluation rubric that I was required to develop will be very helpful in the future.S.S.
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.
I really valued creating the rubric to evaluate technology.J.B., Elementary Teacher
This course provides opportunity to look at new technology in education, but more importantly it explores how we evaluate and look at new technology for purchase.P.G., Elementary 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 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
This course helped me to evaluate technology from a different perspective. Making decisions on what kind of technology will best fit in our district needs to be based on a well thought-out plan.T.S.
Valuable exploration of new technologies and implementation of those technologies in schoolsK.S., Social Studies Teacher
I enjoyed creating my own ed-tech evaluation tool in order to think critically about how technologies can be used in education.M.Z., Social Studies Teacher
I will definitely use more technology with my students.S.L., Math 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.
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
What I found most valuable was to be on the receiving end of an online assignment. I have a better understanding of how my students might view this form of instruction.J.T., Science Teacher
