Pilar's Classroom: Games "In 1606, some 105 adventurers set off from England to try and establish the first permanent English colony in the New World.

Flipped learning: A response to five common criticisms One of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what “flipped learning” is. Over the past few years, the Flipped Learning method has created quite a stir. Some argue that this teaching method will completely transform education, while others say it is simply an opportunity for boring lectures to be viewed in new locations.
