This course offered valuable resources that totally change my mindset about Google Tools. It did not only challenged me to learn new tools, but it required me to the implement them where most needed -the classroom.-M.S., Elementary Teacher
I loved all the different aspects of learning of this course. I was excited to sign up for it because I felt ready to add more technology to my learning. While it offered way more than I needed because I can take a little at a time to give me enough time to delve into a topic and truly practice, I do feel that I have many options and can continue my learning later. The links, while initially overwhelming, will remain accessible to me so I can always go back and continue via self study.T.H., World Languages Teacher
The most valuable part of the course was creating things to use with my students.C.R., Special Education Teacher

I truly enjoyed this course! It was so much better than random grad classes that are full of projects/papers that don't go anywhere or mean anything beyond getting a grade in the class! All of my projects, I plan on utilizing this coming school year and am excited to further my knowledge with google! I never knew there was so much to learn!T.S.
