    It was great to see how the course aligned with requirements for renewing my teaching license in Virginia. I selected this course mainly for that reason. Ildiko F.

    I liked the descriptions of each type of technology that you can use in the classroom. Quite a lot of it was new to me, like the use of blogging and live binders in the classroom. It gave me a lot of ideas that I can use to incorporate these things into my classroom.

    I appreciated the shortcuts to websites for further information. There have been so many changes in the last few years, without training and keeping up with technology, it makes it difficult to sub with confidence. Although, I will say, the children are very proficient at 'helping'.

    This is a good overview of technology in the classroom. I work a lot with technology and students, so I feel like I have more knowledge in this area and therefore the information was not new to me. But, this is very informative and would be great for most people.
