I can’t help saying thank you very much for this exciting event. I have never received so much information and great ideas from a single conference. Despite I was not able to fully enjoy all the possibilities of the Conference because of some technical problems, all these days I have been viewing the recordings (when unable to connect), reading the posts on the blog and chat etc. It was amazing! Thank you very much!

I could see my students share information
