My instructor's materials and podcasts were clear and concise. It was great to have it broken down into digestible chunks and be able to apply what I was learning in that moment. I was also able to review information and revisit concepts as I did assignments. I most appreciate that I came out with a product I can use tomorrow in my classroom. Building my own web site is the key I had been looking for to streamline my teaching and maximize time with my students.

Professor Boll's class was user-friendly, responsive, and immediately applicable to my classroom. I was very pleased with the clarity of these lessons and my newfound ability to create a professional-looking, easy-to-update classroom website. Professor Boll also recommended a wide variety of other tech tools that were easy to learn along the way--things like Gravatar and Canva, which I began implementing in my classes right away. I found this online class to be one of the most useful and no-nonsense grad-level classes I've taken as a teacher. No frills or wasted time, just great tools and well-organized lessons to teach you how to use them. I will definitely recommend this class to colleagues.

When mathematics is taught with real-world lessons, students develop long-term conceptual understanding. The challenge for K-8 teachers is where and how to integrate these lessons. The three pedagogical practices of Problem-based learning, Project-based learning and Inquiry around five foundational skills for mathematics are key concepts. You will learn to create tasks rooted in a real-life connection to these concepts. Research suggests that a strong foundation in these areas is key for math success. $5 material fee due to instructor after registration
