Who can take the course:
The course is open to any member of the Marin educational community; think teachers, administrators, parents, school board and community members, county and school staff, etc. Students are advised to create their own cohorts within the course--so convince your colleague, office mate, neighbor, boss, and friends to enroll! The course is focused on K-12 education and the readings will reflect this, but the material can be applied to any setting that includes educational training with technology.
