Curated Tools for Teacher Continuous Professional Development

We know there are a lot of EdTech tools out there that can be used for teaching and learning. With so many tools at our fingertips, it can be difficult to know which tools to use, and how to use them in an evidence-based way.

To help, EdTech Hub has created curated lists of teacher professional development (TPD) tools along with evidenced-based advice on how to effectively use them. Because, of course, it’s not only which tool you choose, but how you use it that will determine whether it will lead to better teaching and learning.

What types of EdTech tools support TPD?

Evidence shows that technology can help support high-impact TPD programmes. We’ve sorted EdTech tools into three categories based on how they support evidence-based TPD. Within each category, you can find evidence on the topic, effective ways to use the tools, and a curated list of tools to select from depending on your context.
Tools to develop teaching knowledge and skills
These tools provide content on effective pedagogy and content knowledge. They can be used as teaching and learning material within TPD programmes.
Tools for lesson planning
These tools provide materials that can be used to plan classes, such as lesson plans, activity ideas, and templates. They can be used within TPD activities to encourage collaborative lesson planning and reflection.
Tools for communication and collaboration
These tools help teachers communicate, form communities of practice, and share knowledge, ideas, and support.
