Are you on Facebook?

If you are, consider becoming a fan of Promethean Planet. They update regularly and if you go to their page the New Lessons tab shows you many of the newly featured flipcharts and resources they have. Often these are literacy focused. The Video tab has some great, short videos that show the IWB in action in a classroom, interviews with teachers and some tips and tricks. Well worth a look!
