One of the most powerful tools in our own professional development is other teachers. Professional generosity – sharing ideas and feedback with our colleagues - helps us move forward in our own practice. It helps us tweak, refine and improve what we are doing in our classrooms. I know that sometimes I don’t have time to plough through the vast range of resources and tools that are available, so tips and pointers from others have been invaluable to me. I’ve referred many times to the YouTube channel set up by @innovativeteach and I’ve really enjoyed watching the latest batch of videos prepared by teachers for teachers prior to loading them up.

The latest innovids added focus on the use of Microsoft OneNote, Bing, Autocollage and Flashcards, as well as how to increase accessibility for SEN students. You can check them out here:
