One of the most popular posts on this blog is the one on online whiteboards which has been updated recently. Using Screenr recently I was reminded how well it works. It is also possible to easily upload a Screenr screencast to YouTube.
This was part of some feedback on a homework task (Tethered Goat – see nrich version here).
The video has been uploaded to our class wiki (I use Wikispaces).
The wiki page includes advice on the features of a great solution, some questions for reflection and some images of student work.
Note the Diigo list with links to (free) Mathematics posters. See for example all the posters created by nrich of various problems on their site or the excellent classic mistakes posters. (For non Diigo users clicking on the green link will take you direct to the relevant website, select back to return to the list).
Note that the list is also available as an Evernote shared notebook. You do not need an Evernote account to use this, though it is excellent and it is free!
For vocabulary posters it is very quick to produce an attractive poster with a site such as Wordle for generating word clouds.

A favourite site I return to again and again. The site has extensive resources including problems, games, interactives and articles for teachers. Full teachers’ notes are provided.
The teachers’ menu has links particularly useful for teachers. Curriculum mapping documents suggest resources relating to the National Curriculum – both content and process. Something I use a lot is the search by topic facility to find all the resources for a particular topic. For the Interactive Whiteboard there are many outstanding interactives, for example, a favourite with my classes for practising with directed numbers is Connect Three. There are many games available; personal favourites which have worked well with classes are included in this collection.
I have many links to games and puzzles as I am sure all Mathematics teachers have.
In an attempt to organise these I have created another WordPress Blog – Mathematics Games.
Many of the games come from the always excellent NRICH site.
Further links will be added in future.
