Following the conference, students will further expand, reflect, and examine their new knowledge through the analysis of their current classroom practices. Through the creation of classroom policies, procedures, and lessons, learners will showcase their understanding of top tools and ideas in educational technology today. All required course work must be completed by August 21st.

I enjoyed this course immensely because it was a good fit with the KTI Summit. It extended teacher's knowledge because we learned about technology options and learned how to apply it with the SAMR model. Extended thinking at it's best!S.F., Tech Specialist

I have never learned so much in one week or have been surrounded by so many people with new ideas. I have gained so much knowledge and have been so inspired to make new discoveries and implement new ideas. However, our schedule was jam packed and I didn't have a lot of time to work on my assignments. Would have liked a little bit longer to complete assignments.J.S., Elementary Teacher
Very open-ended and choice offered. Self-paced/managed. Professor is insightful and supportive.E.B., Elementary Teacher
I have upgraded my lessons on the SAMR model which I may not have had time to do during the school year. Therefore, it accelerated my progress.J.T., World Languages Teacher

This course was a great addition to the KTI Summit. It was nice to have a small cohort of people that were working on the same projects. We were able to form additional bonds as the week continued. Daily reflections were a great way to process the day.T.S.
I loved all the knowledge that I gain this week. Having to complete the assignment for this course forced me to really think about how I would put this knowledge to use in my classroom to benefit my students. I'm glad that I took this course and am considering more from Eduspire.S.E., Elementary Teacher
