How Many Really and How Many Really from BBC are a great way to show students what some of the numbers mean. It does link to Facebook and Twitter which are blocked in many schools but if you can the site will show how the numbers relate to people you know.

I love this blog, I find some of the best resources here. Youtube is blocked in our school. There are some great resources here to help my teachers show some of the great videos they find on YouTube!
Great list of online videos. Many topics, help students with tutoring, if they have missed a lesson, or just to enhance your own lessons!
Starting to use iPads in your school? Many schools purchase them without a really clear idea of what they are trying to accomplish with them. A clear plan for use is essential for a successful implementation of any technology in the classroom. Take a look at Kathy Schrock's site for iPads. Lots of ideas and great links to help you plan for your schools iPad implementation!

400 Free Teaching Teamplates for Microsoft Office - HOME - Edgalaxy: Where Education and Technology Meet.
Great stuff from Microsoft for education!
I may have blogged about this before, if so it bears repeating. This blog explains how you can use the Silverlight web app to create them. You can find a deck already made or make your own.
I have seen a lot lately about infographics and this is a really good blog explaining what they are and why you would want to use them in your classroom. I love Langwitches, it is a blog that provides a lot of great information and resources.

Really nice modeling for Word problems. Helps students break down thinking so they can see the relationships between the numbers.
