Testimonials“I think this class setup was great in introducing various Google tools and giving the student (me) time to explore those tools. I then had plenty of opportunities to create my own Google resources and try them out in the classroom! I am excited to see how these Google resources continue to evolve with the needs of teachers and students.” —TINT Student
“My biggest appreciation for this class and all of the TINT online classes is that it allows me to work at my own pace. Somehow I fool myself into thinking that summers are going to be wide open and free and that is rarely the case. I also really tend to prefer classes that offer a certain level of practicality. This class ticks that box for me. I know that my students and I will benefit from me having taken this class. Finally, I appreciated the opportunity to take the Google Certification as a part of the class. I liked having the choice of the certification vs book study. It is a reminder to me that giving choices gives opportunities to demonstrate growth in different ways. I think this class exceeded my expectations simply because I came away with more ideas than I had imagined.” —TINT Student
“I think the part of this class that helped the most was the knowledge that we can do so much from home and be able to make it through Covid-19 much easier with the technology of all these programs. I am excited to actually use more of google this year than I have in the past. Thank you for the information and for the special little extras you put into the course. Thank you so much for this class and your help. There is nothing I would change. It was one of the best classes I’ve taken.” —TINT Student
