This course provides video, reading, resources, and hands-on activities. A great way to share and get me thinking about ways to embed activities within my lessons to ignite student interest in STEM.

The K. Cole videos did not load. The student video clips lacked diversity....maybe some footage could be taken at a festival, where diversity is plentiful... I could not click through some of the slide show presentations On some so the screens that were slide show or interactive I could not see a full screen only partial, so I did not get the full effect. It may be a technical problem with using an iPad .... Excellent program!

This course went through a lot of information. I like that I can work through it on my own time. I would say medium difficultly because you are asked to complete forms and do virtual labs, which makes it more engaging. I like the online labs where I got to click my own answers; it gives me a good idea of how it would work if I did it in my own classroom with students.

This was a review of the process and information. I really liked the variety of activity and video to guide students through the material. It is much more interesting and interactive than some other online sessions I have been involved with (they depended on power point slides to convey information). I liked the ability to see progress, monitor posts, interact with others in the course and the content. Great job editing my video by the way...it looked and soundsed like I knew what I was talking about! : )
