    It was a fresh beginning to the weekend that I experienced through this workshop. It started off well and throughout, I didn’t stop making notes because there was an inflow of insightful information, gamification tools, models to facilitate sessions effectively and everything that a 21st century teacher needs to deal with students in the best possible manner. A huge thanks to Prathima ma’am for being so effortless while sharing her knowledge and experience. Her humility totally nailed the entire training.
