Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "Each chapter in the book they were discussing includes hands-on activities that students can explore, engaging articles to read that promote literacy in science, and a mathematics activity- I really appreciate how this book covers multiple content areas"
  • "I really liked that one of the activities was actually shown instead of just talked about. This brought it to life!"
  • "The energy in the presenters and understanding of what the real classroom is like as well as digital obstacles we have to overcome in teaching right now"
