DI Video Clip Library

We are privileged to have the opportunity to visit Ontario classrooms and professional learning sessions through these video clips. They show examples of a range of implementation stages and are not necessarily meant to demonstrate exemplary practices. Rather, they provide a unique opportunity for us to analyze what we see and hear with a view to moving our own learning forward. We sincerely thank all those educators and students who have provided us with windows into their thinking and practice.
