    Thanks Stacie,

    Did you have a look into any of the particular resources, and are there any that were of personal use to you that you may feel you could use within the classroom context? Our hope here is that possibly students will be able to access this blog on their practicum and utilise the resources on the IWBs to engage students with. Let us know if you come across any other fantastic resources, this can be a place where we all share information and ideas!
