What problem were you looking to solve in your classroom?
John Vincent: So yeah, I'm required to interpret in class and I work one of one with deaf and hard of hearing students. Um and we were covering topics about artificial intelligence, um and having discussions about things like IOT and I didn't feel like I had a strong understanding of these different concepts. Um, and I wanted to understand the basics a little bit more and feel more confident, um, when I'm talking to those students.
How have our sessions helped you?
