Looking for high quality examples of either AP or IB Diploma programme teachers using technology effectively in their classrooms. Links to blogs, projects, etc would be appreciated. I've been working with an international school this year, and would love to show them the work of other teachers teaching in similar circumstances. 

I'm compiling these resources in a set of Evernote notebooks and will share them with anyone who's willing to exchange resources.  I have a fair amount of stuff collected, but could always use more resources.

Thanks in advance!

EdCamp IB was a great success yesterday!

Here are notebooks to IB related stuff and more that I've been collecting. I use the Evernote web clipper tool when I'm doing research to bookmark resources and then I made these notebooks public.
