      This is great to use as a resource. I showed the video – The 21st century in New Brunswick to staff – very interesting. I watched the video on the Principal who bans social media – I loved the contrasting text to the interview – it was nice to share this with two teachers today in our conversations. Also I watched the "Mathclass needs a makeover" I forwarded the site to a HS Math teacher who believes in problem solveing and he replied that he was going to try a few of the ideas today. Thanks for sharing these sites.
