Part of all countries teaching practise requires you to undertake a set amount of professional development (PD). While in Australia i kept a notebook where i could gather ideas i have seen in classrooms i had been in. I have decided to share these ideas here on the blog and keep them safely, in digital form.

This will be an evolving page as I add more links and ideas as I come across them and I will also add links to any blog posts with more information about what i find.
