Well worth it!! I've learn a great deal in such a short amount of time. I can now navigate an iPad with confidence and ease!J.C., Reading Specialist
Mr. Gates was very patient and had tons of info to share. He was available throughout the week to answer questions in a timely manner. I am recommending him to my co-workers!K.M.
Thank you for so much for great week of learning - it really met my needs. I learned a lot and most of all, I loved networking with other people from the same grade level. I love how you allowed us to have time to go play, and you really explained the apps and features for the iPad. I like how you understood the different needs of a one-to-one classroom and also just a one iPad classroom.D.R., Elementary Teacher
One of the most exciting courses. Each moment of the class we spent learning something new and useful.J.Z.
I learned a lot and will probably work on this all summer.M.F., Language Arts Teacher
Jim Gates was a very knowledgeable instructor. Jim obviously spends a lot of time keeping himself up to date on technology. I will highly recommend my colleagues to take the course with Jim.K.R.
Mr. Gates was a wonderful presenter and very knowledgeable. This course was very hands-on. We were taught something new and then able to work on that app. It gave us time to try it out and ask questions immediately if we needed support. I liked that there were three "teachers" there to help us if we needed additional help or to trouble shoot our iPads if something wasn't working properly.L.H., Elementary Teacher
The course provided "hands -on" time with the apps. Mr. Gates was very patient and paced the class in such a way that I did not feel overwhelmed. By the time the class ended, my anxiety over learning about iPads had diminished and I felt I was ready to tackle this with my class.B.E., Elementary Teacher
I truly enjoyed the chance to learn about iPads as they relate to education, both as a student tool and a teacher productivity tool, and I also enjoyed the chance to interact with other like-minded educators on this and other topics.E.F., Librarian
The course was extremely valuable to me and will enhance my professional life in many ways.A.M., Librarian
Amazing class!!! This course contains a wealth of information.C.S., Math Teacher
My use of the iPad has COMPLETELY changed. Previously I used my iPad for web surfing and games. Now I have a greater knowledge of apps on the iPad.K.M., Elementary Teacher
