Practical pointers from practitioners!

by Darlene Stewart
It was informative, I liked that I was given a second opportunity to take the assessment, because I firmly believe that once the material is presented students can definitely score higher if given a second chance. We truly learn from our mistakes. It was also interesting to hear 3 different perspectives on differentiation.

I didn't bother to finish

by Ebony Burnside
After having taken the Flipped Certification course, I had high hopes for this course, but am sad to say that I didn't see the benefit of completing it for a variety of reasons. 30% in, I don't even have one page of notes taken. If you have done any thinking about differentiation previously, this course may not be valuable for you either.
