Testimonials

The class material was presented in a way that was not stressful so that people of varying degrees of Chromebook knowledge could work at their own pace. I appreciated that the material was presented in a mellow yet interesting way.  It felt like a great way to get a group of teachers excited about new technology additions to an upcoming school year without feeling overwhelmed. I left the class feeling much more confident and eager to implement new websites and apps for the 2017-2018 school year.

This class inspired me to use more technology in my math classes in the coming year.  I usually shy away from new technology and hold on to what I’m used to doing instead. Something I got out of the class that isn’t a specific website, app or extension is the comfort level I needed to be able to try new things and to enjoy the technology.  This will translate over into a positive experience for my students, as well!

Thank you for a great class. I appreciate how you presented it to us and made it easy to work with you and each other, and being accessible for us to ask questions and work at our level and pace. I learned a lot.
