Jason Simmons
English Language Teacher - The USA
Participating in Education Today has helped me build a network of professional colleagues, develop my knowledge, and also gave the chance to make my first presentation at an educational conference. I learned a lot from other colleagues and we had helpful discussions about our way of developing lessons and the activities we used in the classroom. It was an exchange of skills and practices very valuable for each one of us. This has helped my students be more confident to express themselves in the project based learnings, solving problems and using 21-century skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking! .
