"As a classroom teacher, who is not a digital native, I found Rich’s classes to be very practical. I was able to leave class and use many of the applications he introduced with confidence and ease. I especially appreciated that he gave examples of how these applications could be used in the classroom.  His enthusiasm for the subject is contagious and the wealth of knowledge and skill he brings to the course gives the learner a confidence that they too can be successful in implementing the technologies in their own classrooms. I would highly recommend any course that Rich is teaching."
