A Primer on Curriculum-Sharing Sites When I was teaching, the single greatest way for me to prepare was to have conversations with my colleagues who had taught the concepts before. For one, this helped all of us develop a common discourse, which was inevitably clearer once we were working through our thoughts in trying to explain ideas to each other. Second, chatting informally helped me to develop a conversational tone, and to speak extemporaneously with the class, which ultimately helped to convey my passion for the subject matter, which is what brought my colleagues and I together in the first place. In addition, the most effective assignments that I used were based on ideas or resources that other teachers had shared with me. Teacher collaboration not only saves time, and makes work easier, it improves the quality of curriculum. The second domain consists of sites that produce and share free curriculum materials, in a more traditional broadcast model. Curriculum Sharing Networks Curriculum Sharing Broadcast Sites

Maths Videos Smart Tools for Your Android Device Smart Tools Co. is a developer of handy Android apps for measuring things. Some of the free apps that they offer include Smart Measure, Sound Meter, Vibration Meter, Speed  Gun, and Smart Protractor. Smart Tools also offers pro versions of those apps. I’m not a mathematics teacher and admittedly my geometry skills are rusty, but when I watched the videos of Smart Measure and Smart Protractor in action (videos below) I couldn’t help but think that there has to be a math lesson lying in wait with these apps.
