I was reminded of some things I’m already doing, but nothing really new presented here. Also, some of it seemed more from the “gifted coordinator” perspective and didn’t seem as relevant to me.

Kind of a hodge-podge of introductory descriptions of various technology uses in classroom teaching, not very expertly focused on gifted education.

Informative for teachers just getting into utilizing technology within the classroom. However, there is a lot more to it than what was presented. Student intrinsic motivation is optimal. Student participation outside the classroom is optimal as well. Without student access to devices outside the classroom this can get tricky.

This course may currently be obsolete due to the state of our world right now and the restrictions we are dealing with due to COVID. The information would be helpful if we were going to have a traditional school year.
Nancy – MARION CITY (verified owner) –
This session is a bit outdated. Since most of the country was using remote learning last spring, the majority of teachers are looking for specific tools and ideas that will stretch students.

I felt like this was an OpEd of this man’s experiences. Rather than what is actually available to me as a classroom teacher. I do not have the luxury of choosing what programs we use.

It was informative.
