- Flipped Classroom

- Performance Matters
Brigitte believes that improved learning outcomes do not stem from the technological tools themselves but from the opportunities provided by those tools when learning is moved from passive to active, generalized to personalized, and imagined to self-discovered. Her greatest passion is in serving and helping others discover the excitement and value in lifelong learning.
Education is not an experienced course. It is instead a course of experiences in and out of the classroom. Whether teacher or student, one must make those experiences matter!
