The course was excellent. It provided me with an understanding of a range of different digital tools that I can use to engage students and I was able to exchange ideas and discuss the use of different strategies with other Science teachers. James (course facilitator) is passionate about technology use in Science & very supportive of course participants' ideas.
I found the course very useful. In particular I really enjoyed being introduced to some new digital tools I had not used before and seeing how others have used them in their lessons to give me ideas as to how I may be able to incorporate them into my lessons. It was definitely a very useful, worthwhile course.
Using Digital Pedagogy Effectively in the Science Classroom
I found the course to be very useful.
The course offers some very interesting ways to incorporate digital media into the classroom. I had already used several of the strategies but there were many more that were included and that other participants had used that I had not considered. I have already started to implement these into my lessons.
The course presented many digital strategies that can easily be implemented to enhance teaching and learning. I would definitely recommend this course to others.
I found the overall course very informative and useful to my development as a teacher. I have been exposed to different digital platforms and technology that I was previously unaware of.
I would happily recommend this course to anyone that would be interested in doing it.
Thanks must go to both TTA and James for the work they have put in to making this course so enjoyable to complete and for not making the submissions onerous and feeling like it was a burden to work on.
The course facilitated a collaborative learning experience and supplied some useful tools for the classroom that I will be implementing. The course leader was very encouraging and knowledgeable.
James runs a good course. The content was excellent and discussion was valuable to current/future practice.
This course was helpful in expanding my knowledge about Digital Pedagogy. It was relevant with information that we can put into practice.
Fantastic course, some great resources and very supportive facilitator.
