I am always amazed to find out about the geographical diversity among my MET classmates. This is my fourth course in the program; I have done three of the core courses so far.
I signed up for this class because it was the only option available to me for the fall semester. I was reluctant at first because there is little that I despise more than technology businesses scooping up the scarce dollars of public education without bringing any improvement in student’s learning. After reading the outline, I realized that the ultimate goal of a venture in learning technology is not necessarily to make money but can also strive to maximize learning opportunities. Teaching in a small rural school, where opportunities are limited, I can now see how this course can help me in my practice. I am now looking forward to it.
