Teacher toolbox

Looking for new, useful ways to digitally enhance or upskill your journey as a teacher? Each month we will round up some great online tools or websites that can support you as you pave the way for yourself and your learners.

👉 TeacherConnectcommunity: DBE-E³’s very own online community has just been relaunched! This platform is for teachers to engage in methods and processes to bring their classrooms to life using approaches such as S.P.E.C.I.A.L. and project-based learning and to interact with others who have already succeeded in doing so. It is an online community to support, encourage, guide, and celebrate success. Whatever topic you want to discuss, there is space for you to do that. It is also a way to keep up to date with events such as informative, live online sessions and more!

👉 Kahoot! (This is a link, please click on it to open the webpage): Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that allows teachers to create interactive quizzes, surveys, and games for their learners. It provides instant feedback and allows for iteration, as teachers can adjust their questions and quizzes based on learner performance. (External link, data rates may apply)

👉 Padlet (This is a link, please click on it to open the webpage): Padlet is a free online bulletin board that allows teachers to create a virtual space where learners can collaborate, share ideas, and provide feedback. Teachers can also use Padlet to create brainstorming sessions, organise class discussions, and provide feedback to learners, facilitating iteration and improvement.
