I learn to see edtech from different perspectives.W.H., Math Teacher
I really enjoyed the ability to look at education technology from the business point of view instead of the teacher perspective.J.W.
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
Highly recommend this course to other teachers!J.F.
