Why Teachers Love Our Courses:
Can I tell you that I have taught a ton of after school classes in my career and this Bitspace Wearables class is a dream come true - seriously. I am Team Bitspace all the way!
Karen and I both really liked the way the curriculum was organized. We liked how the platform had pictures and text intermingled to show what the text was talking about and close-ups of the wiring. This was super helpful!
I really enjoyed this course! It was very informative and supports my philosophy of what education should be. I want to thank you also for the thought-provoking exercises.....WOW! I cannot wait to put my plan into action and share it with my colleagues :)
