This is an exciting time for education. We have tools that allow us opportunities in classrooms that were never available in the past: virtual field trips on large screens, opportunities to engage in conversation and collaborative work with other students and experts around the world, easy access to real world data that helps students develop critical thinking skills, and the ability to create multimedia presentations to share with the world. One of my many responsibilities is to help teachers find the resources that make these opportunities valuable experiences for their students. Below are links to resources I use for professional development with teachers and to support curriculum.
