Teachers are walking fountains of knowledge. The 21st century has provided the tools for teachers to share their knowledge globally. A great way for teachers to reflect on their own work is to collect and share their resources. It is one thing to use resources but the act of sharing resources is also accompanied by a learning process.
You have to reflect on your own knowledge, prioritise, collect and filter. Once you have all your resources what is the next step. Here is a range of sites teachers can use to create and share online resources.
