TOP REVIEWS FROM EMERGING TRENDS & TECHNOLOGIES IN THE VIRTUAL K-12 CLASSROOM
Definitely good for K 12 teachers, however the resources are still dated as the course is of 2014 and there have been tremendous changes since then.
The course presenter is engaging and is well prepared. Some of the links were broken but there is more than enough material to get through.
Unlike the previous course in the Virtual Teacher Specialization, this course was pretty well organized, the instructor was articulate and well-versed in the subject she is teaching.
It gives me insights about the emerging trends that we may use in teaching. It also give me the list of possible OER and MOOCs that I can visit to get instructional materials to aide me in teaching.
