Teacher Comments

  • My students really like using the new technologies. They are more enthusiastic and complete more assignments because they like to use the technology. I was amazed how many papers I received because I allowed the students to use google docs.

  • Students were very happy to have permission to use their cell phones in class. The survey monkey definitely helps with finding out information easily.

  • Students and parents loved the beginning-of-school surveys. The flip camera has been instrumental in giving students feedback on their oral presentations.
