Everybody's Talking About Gizmos
“Walked away with a lesson plan that I can immediately use. Instructor was knowledgeable. Time was managed and well used."- Teacher, Warwick Public Schools, Warwick Vets Middle School
“This was an excellent training. The instructor tied the use of Gizmos into the learning cycle in a way that helped me visualize how I may integrate it into my instruction.”- Teacher, Rogers Public School, Middle School
