Teach 4 the Heart Teaching Resources I am the founder of Teach 4 the Heart (www.teach4theheart.com) I've also taught middle school math for four years, including Math 6, pre algebra, and Algebra 1. I've also taught English and accounting. I lean towards a more traditional teaching style, but I am always looking for new ideas. I believe technology should aid in genuine learning, not just be used for its own sake.

OneNote – A Practical Tip « First Steps We started using OneNote with our Year 9 English classes in 2009 and continued with the process as they moved into Year 10 in 2010. Our Year 9 students that have just received their laptops have now also begun the process of using OneNote as their English book.

I do share this collection with people online and in school but I've never really seen it used much because it's not that visually attractive and can sometimes seem a little overwhelming due to she sheer amount of stuff on it. For these reasons, I also store duplicates of my favourite resources on Edmodo using their 'Library' tool. You can upload documents (up to 100mb) in size as well as save links to websites and embeddable content (e.g.
