By coincidence, this week's 'Math Forum Internet News' had two items that relate directly to your question. Here is an excerpt with links:
Videos of Doing and Teaching Math
http://mathforum.org/blogs/max/ videosofdoingandteachingmath/
Max recently added to his growing annotated compilation of videos that "deepen inquiry into teaching math, and student inquiry into learning math."
Math education highlight reels include:
children inventing methods for doing doubledigit arithmetic a kid "thinking SO HARD about making change" illustrations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Mathematical Practices podcasting combined with virtual manipulatives as a form of oneonone assessment Suzanne, the Forum's Director of Professional Development, problemsolving with middleschool students in Philadelphia
Want to talk about videos that feature math teachers and students? Have a comment for our Professional Collaboration Facilitator? Post them on Max's blog.
His first book is in press now. Published by Heinemann, Powerful Problem Solving: Activities for SenseMaking with the Mathematical Practices hits shelves next month. Check out some of the early reviews:

"High school students are the shyest noticers and wonderers, and have a harder time suspending their disbelief than, say, third graders. Here are some tips for noticing and wondering with high school students...."  Max, posted to his blog http://mathforum.org/blogs/max/ noticingandwonderinginhighschool/   Webinar on Common Core Math

Want to see where mobile learning meets the CCSS? and create authentic realworld activities that teach math? Register for the free online seminar "Mobilize Mathematics: Mobile Learning Meets the Common Core."
Taking place Thursday, 12 September, this webinar continues a series run by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and the Mathlanding project of Maryland Public Television (MPT).
