It's a great afternoon to watch a few videos to inspire you for the new week:

If you are curious to know what sign should NOT be in our schools, you can see the slide deck here at practialtheory.org.
Next, if you haven't already seen Sir Ken Robinson's "Do Schools Kill Creativity," this too is a must view.
And, finally, in anticipation of the third annual free K-12 Online Conference, watch these two teasers that connect to working with struggling learners. The first one is a VoiceThread entitled, "Changing Disabilities into Possibilities." The second one is a TeacherTube Video called, "Free Tools for Universal Design for Learning in Literacy."
All you need is the popcorn.
