Other Perspectives.

North and South of the border

I always advocate that we are learning from each other ALL the time. It is important you get fresh ideas from other sources which may enhance your teaching. One such site is Learning Teaching Scotland (see http://www.ltscotland.org.uk/)
I often get ideas from the Australian Virtual Teacher Centre too. You can subscribe to their newsletter or download past issues form their website at http://www.virtualteacher.com.au/directory.html

For you web developers out there, some useful summary sheets can be found at
http://lesliefranke.com/files/reference/htmlcheatsheet.html
and

You can also download and print the pdf version from http://www.typepadhacks.org/2007/01/cheat_sheets_fo.html
