Excellent! It's my first class after many many years! The book was easy to read! The work was helpful and useful! And the professor was kind and complimentary and always gave great feedback! I learned so much!!! And I am already using many activities I learned about in my 1st grade class."
I Absolutely LOVED this class! It was so insightful and very helpful. I highly recommend this class if you're looking to improve your knowledge and integration of technology in your lessons and student work."
"I've taken many courses, but this was my first hybrid course. I loved it! The instructor was great—will definitely take future courses with him. This class was helpful for both my professional and my personal life and I have so many new ideas to make things easier. Loved the assignments-they were relevant and helpful for practical application in my life. The work load was exactly what you'd want for a class in time management: enough to learn, but no busy work."
This class as great for a teacher wanting to refresh their love of teaching through self-care. This helped me start the school year with a clear, ready to teach attitude. This class has a great book that I will continue to read year after year to refresh and remind myself of the tools/resources needed to be the best me."
