What People Are Saying:

I really did enjoy the course and learned a lot! It was awesome and I really liked the format along with the Kajabi app. I am thrilled that I will be able to use these materials next year!

This was a great course. I enjoyed thinking about how to use more design challenges in my classroom. It was also real in letting me think about my "not-to-do" list. I feel like this can help me when I get back into my non-virtual classroom as well as giving my students optional tasks for home learning and design.

I really enjoyed the courses that I participated in. I thought the PD was really good, and I came away with a lot of ideas on how to implement more DT/Making into my classroom.
