Lots of ideas, but maybe too many at one time. It would be nice to learn more about a few tools then hearing about so many and then forgetting which ones were mentioned. Ms. Terrell is very knowledgeable.

There were a lot of great resources in this presentation. I liked that the presenter had some that were a bit more rare (that I had not heard about prior).

Great presentation! I like how the students are getting comfortable with their textbooks and picking them apart.
