  1. sam. What tools do you recommend specifically for adult learners? We work in a corporate environment and looking for ways to make learning succinct, interactive, micro- and interactive.

  2. We are a team of Primary Education students at the University of Murcia (Spain). For our course 'Resources and ICT' we used your video as a recommendation of useful, safe, and appropriate tools for using with our future students. We really liked the possibilities of Nearpod, which we didn't know. Thank you, it was so interesting. Best regards, Puzzle Team
