In the past, I did a post on the book Environments for Learning by Eric Jensen. Jensen does a great job with brain research and education. His website is http://www.ericjensen.com/. You can view the post that I summarized pieces of the book here.
I recently attended a workshop on using Movie Maker, so I put my last 3rd grade classroom into a video with information from this book.
Here is the video that I made for that workshop.
