Ideas to Inspire - Curriculum Ideas and More

Ideas to Inspire is a collection of ideas for using software, hardware, and online tools in the classroom. The ideas are presented in a style of suggestion rather than how-to. All of the ideas are presented in a slideshow format using Google Docs presentation. As all of the slideshows are Creative Commons licensed and in Google Docs, you can share these ideas with your colleagues on a district or department website. Ideas to Inspire was created by and hosted by Mark Warner.
