Lots of good sites to use. Some are new to me. The hook is 'free'! Students can definitely benefit from having access to these accounts. We need to move them to the future instead of remaining in the past through old technology. However, nothing beats a good book in hand and not on a tablet. :)

Relating content to the 4cs was very helpful. That is one of the focuses this year for my school.
