A Photo Reflection of Fab 8 NeuroELT Conference

This is my short reflection of the sessions I had attended at FAB 8 NeuroELT International Conference - one of the most thrilling conferences ever. It took place in the beautiful city of Kyoto, Japan on Sept 25-26.
I've gather loads of new knowledge and insights and with pure excitement, I am using so many of them in my classrooms now.
