CLASSY REDESIGN: Quick--if you still have a moment of breathing room before the school year starts, check out Edutopia's video series on re-designing the classroom. These three slickly produced, 5-minute videos chronicle a d.school-style redesign of one teacher's classroom. You probably don't have the resources for the full-on tear-down shown in the vids, but watching them could get the creative juices flowing. The design process, described in Edutopia's blog post, is also a good way to approach any curricular choices (including edtech ones!) you make this year.
