i really liked this seminar. Duarte and Paulo are very good in teaching and they have a great knowledge in smart educational recourses. Also they were very friendly and eager to help you with everything. The content of this course is easy to follow and very interesting. All that you learn can be used in a real classroom. Also the city of Faro and the surroundings are really beautiful place to be. As this was my first course it has really put my standards high. It's highly recommended. Thank you very much for all the knowledge and the good time.

It was the best course I have ever attended. The trainers' competences and knowledge, their ability to create a strong team, their openness and flexibility, as well as the content of the course were fantastic! I work in the kindergarten but also for my students and teachers I found many interestig and useful applications which are going to be used in the near future. I recommend the course to all people (not only teachers) - regardless of their age, purpose or subject taught. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, DUARTE AND PAULO, FOR AMAZING WEEK!!!

I like this course very much. I can recommend with all my heart for teachers of any school subject. The trainers were amazing both, very friendly and patient. They try with great success to find a good balance between theory and practice and between working on the course and cultural program. I was very impressed by their concern for our return at home.

Duarte and Paulo are two really nice teachers and have in using apps specialist knowledge. They have both tried hard and the balance between working on the course, cultural programm and free time was perfect. Afterwards you have a lot of input and the personal work to join the best apps for you and your collegues. I recommend this course.

This is a great course to both advanced IT users as well as beginners as both trainers, Duarte and Paulo, are very supportive and attentive to the needs of each participant. The success of the course was predicted from the first minute of an application as the communication with the organizers was very fluent. In my opinion, the fact that trainers teach at school themselves and are involved in international activities with their pupils give them a better insight on the needs of the participants too. An excellent balance between theory and practice was also a great benefit of the course. Training sessions were well combined with cultural activities. And last but not least, trainers managed to create such a friendly atmosphere that we keep communicating with them and each other on social media after the course. I am very delighted that I took part in this course and would like to express my deepest gratitude to Duarte and Paulo wishing them great success in the future!

The course of using mobile applications in education was professionally prepared. Individual applications were carefully explained and we could try them out right away. The teachers Duartes and Paul were very friendly, took care of us carefully and showed us traditional places, customs and meals. I learned a lot new and learned a lot of interesting things. Thank you for their approach.

I can recommend this course for teachers of any school subject. Even before the course started, organizational communication via e-mail was excellent. Trainers Duarte and Paulo have provided us with countless educational tools and apps for specific proposes and subjects, all very well prepared. Every day we made personal reflections and pointed the pros and cons of the discussed topic. Cultural visit to Ria Formosa Natural Reserve and Sand Islands was exceptional. Duarte and Paulo are very professional but also friendly, on highest level. I'm very grateful for the wonderful week we spent together!
