Great content, really useful identification of apps that I can incorporate in my teaching pedagogy.

The course was excellent in relation to providing a range of apps. I found some very good apps that I plan to use in my lessons. However, I thought that the actual integration of the ICT into programs was lacking. Providing English specific exemplars would have been very helpful. I felt as though the course just threw a bunch of apps at me.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. Although I have been teaching many years, looking at the theory and practice of student behaviour, or in my case, misbehaviour, through the eyes of various experts, has given me fresh impetus and ideas on how to better tackle these problems. The combination of theoretical background notes and video clips works well. The need to comment on each note or video clip also aids in cementing these new ways of responding to problem behaviours in a more positive manner. A most well run and worthwhile course, no matter where one is in one’s teaching career

As I work in Early Childhood, I found the first sections very relevant and helpful, while the PBS wasn’t as relevant for me

It was a great way to see how and why students misbehave in the classroom.
