This is a great resource for any teacher that is teaching multiplication. Not only does this website have activities and games for teachers to use with students, it also has professional development resources for teachers. There are videos to show students that you could use during a math lesson to show students mutliplication strategies in a different and engaging way. As a new teacher this website will be very helpful. I will look to this website, especially during full take over when I am planning everything on my own, for resources and teaching tips to help me continue to grow as an educator.

Short videos about numbers, maths and all sorts of other numbery stuff. We'll make you love numbers!
John Dalziel's insight:

These videos reveal some of the mystery behind numbers and maths in fun, short snippets! The Numberphile videos could provide excellent openers for maths classes.
Use Triptico, or similar tools, to select learner groups and to allocate a different video for each group to watch. Learners can learn a new maths “trick” or pattern to teach their peers. The goal: to creatively teach the concept! They could create their own video, stop motion animation, infographic, story, illustration, Helloslide, etc.

Note: All of the videos on Numberphile are YouTube videos.

What Is...every file format in the world - A through E

This page briefly describes every file format (or actually the file name extensions for the formats) that we have been able to learn about.
John Dalziel's insight:

While using computers, practitioners and learners will come across file extensions of various formats.

A lot of the time, they may not know what these extensions stand for.

Normally, if an individual knows what the extension stands for, they can figure out what the file is for. If you want to be able to quickly tell what a file extension means, you should check out a website called TechFileFormat.

Curriculum Primary School songs and music for learning in KS1, KS2 and KS3 in Maths, Literacy and Science for ages 6-14.
John Dalziel's insight:

These are resources that Family Learning Practitioners, and those teaching in Junior and Secondary Schools will find really help support the Literacy, Maths and Science curriculum. These are areas where it is difficult to find songs.

Their aim is to keep the songs modern and interesting, rather than patronising learners with some of the the music they are often exposed to. The songs cover all types of genres and styles, aiming to get learners to put the songs on their own MP3 players!
