We're happy to announce that the RickMorrisTV channel launched the week of August 14, 2017 on YouTube. The plan is to create short videos of the concepts and strategies Rick shared during his 31 years as a PD presenter.

First up is a Final Talk Playlist based on his last presentation to teachers that was filmed in Stockton, CA on March 18, 2017. These videos will take you through the entire day's presentation and showcase Rick's thinking, problem-solving, and creative approach to effective teaching.

From the Freedom List to Classroom Gestures, you'll quickly discover a number of ideas for creating a happy, productive classroom.

You'll also find a second Playlist called Tools & Toys. Each video will demonstrate a separate strategy that you can put into place immediately. Case in point, the first video shows you how easy it is to set up and use a wireless doorbell as a way to gain student attention. It's not only simple and effective, it will also cut down on the amount of unnecessary teacher talk.

You can find Rick's channel by clicking on the YouTube logo.
