EdTech Student Handbook! > !
Collaborate with Others "Thank you for taking the time to touch base with me! I am definitely enjoying my class and really appreciate how forward-thinking the material feels. Also, I'm impressed with the sense of community in the EDTECH program. I love receiving e-mails, being able to check what's going on via Twitter and to read my classmates' blogs. Definitely a difference from my undergrad where I sometimes felt like I didn't know anyone!" Amber Lavoie
