Testimonials“The content and assignments in this class not only met but exceeded my desired learning outcomes. I appreciated the balance of resources and pedagogy with multiple perspectives shared in each Pinterest collection. While much of the content covered topics I was familiar with, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to dive deeper into them and consider possible next steps and implications for my work. In particular, the specific learning on UDL and digital citizenship represented the biggest ah-ha’s for me pedagogically. I see this learning having a great impact on my work with teachers. By taking time first to wrap my head around these concepts, I feel more prepared to offer support to teachers, not as an expert but as an informed thought partner. Overall I am grateful for this learning opportunity and for the seamless connection with my work as a Technology Integration Coach.” —TINT Student
“Thank you for organizing this class so that the learning is very practical and applicable to teaching, rather than just theoretical.” —TINT Student
“I have definitely met my goals for this class. I was able to learn about many new apps and websites that I can immediately use with my students. These will be incredibly beneficial, especially as we continue to navigate distance learning. I was able to find much more efficient ways to use google classroom, and complete the same tasks that I had been doing in much less time. I appreciate the resources that were provided, and will continue to utilize them in the future.” —TINT Student
