Marco Torres - Inservice

Last week I was fortunate enough to attend an inservice hosted by the CEO. Marco Torres was the presenter. Marco is a creative educator who uses the power of technology to tap into the strengths of his students. A point Marco emphasised over and over again was that our teaching should be "relevant, meaningful and applicable." He shared what seemed to be a limitless supply of powerful examples.
Marco posed the challenge of "transforming our school... ask the big questions". Marco's questions include:

One of many great resources marco shared includeMind Mapping web tools. These tools are free and easy for students to share and collaborate with. These online tools will be great for year 9 and 10 who have macs!

Please let me know how you have used these sites in your classroom!
