Before the summer I wrote (in swedish) a blogtext about books that teachers could read during summer to get interesting pedagogical discussions with their colleagues this autumn. It´s been shared over 1000 times, so there has been quite some interest in these books (some are in english, but most of them are in swedish). Now I´m going to continue the theme about content that can make a solid base for great pedagogical discussions. This time it´s movie clips instead of books. Most of them are in english and between ten and twenty minutes long.
