A classroom full of tools is no match for a quality teacher and enthusiastic students, but they can sure be useful.
Educators use a range of tools and resources to enhance their teaching or professional practice. They could be free or paid, digital or analogue. Your tools could include something you can physically hold, or an online space. They may be new or something you’ve held on to for many years. Often, a teacher’s toolkit depends on their field or specialty area.
Tools and resources can help you understand, organise, assess, present, create, collaborate and more. Some tools might have changed a lot since you were at school, while others have stood the test of time.
Prompt: Write a post about a tool or resource
The following ideas might provide some inspiration for the content of your post.
- Choose one tool and explain how you use it and why it’s a part of your professional practice.
- Compare the tools you used when you were a student, to those used in schools today.
- If there were no constraints, what tools or resources would you like more of?
- What sort of tools or resources do you think teachers and students will be using in the future?
