Great site for sharing and finding resources.  Easy to tag and upload as well as find lessons for yourself.  It’s free and a great way to collaborate with teachers around the world or right in your own department. I have been using it specifically to collaborate by sharing lessons with teachers from other schools in my board as well as sharing lessons with teachers who are teaching science and tech.

An awesome program where I can bring Canadian scientists into my classroom to mentor my students.  You can make video calls to professors in many scientific, math and health fields.  Calls can be a few minutes or a schedule classroom long discussion.  Highly recommend it.

Amazing site for keeping lesson plans together.  The plans support uploading documents to the actual plan so you can always find things.  You can also publish the lesson for others to see and find lessons that others have shared.  Keeps me organized!

Connect students’ Apple devices to your computer and project to the class.  I had two iPads in my class which I would pass out to take up questions while the other students watched on the screen.  Can be used to collaborate in groups and if students bring in their own device they connect to my mac and to the projector.
