This whole course has been empowering. I have been working to flip my classrooms for the past 8 years and this has helped me see the need for individual and group learning space. I have learned unique ways to differentiate not only the tasks but the assessments that are part of the learning process. This was intense, but worth all of the time I spent learning these new approaches and tools.

I've loved this course because it allowed me to see what happens when other teachers, from all over the world, personalise their way of Flipping their classes. I've enjoyed every minute of it especially when peering and visiting their classes while they were explaining the reasons for their methodological choices, because I could better understand HOW they plan their lessons, also if different subjects from mine. Following their planning workflow I've got new insights that may help me address and improve what doesn't completely satisfy me. Seeing so many committed Experts and engaged learners gave me Hope for the future of Education. Thanks!
