This course was very helpful in developing my approach to integrating technology in the classroom.L.S., Math Teacher
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
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
The lessons in correspondence with the KTI were valuable in pulling everything together.K.Z., Social Studies Teacher

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.
