School Tool: TES Offers Over 5,000 ICT Resources

Feb 6, 2013

Free! ICT TEACHING RESOURCES from TES bills itself as "5,822 Free ICT resources: ICT lesson plans, ICT worksheets, ICT revision, ICT teaching ideas and much more." If you've ever wondered about those three letters while tweeting with U.K. educators, ICT or "Information and Communications Technology" is an umbrella term for "edtech," "web 2.0," "e-learning" and any number of other terms used to characterize learning technologies. Updated daily, the TES resource page is geared toward grades 6-12 covering over 40 topics including Design, Presentations, Web Publishing, Information Retrieval and Image Processing. For the primary school educator, there's also a subset of similar resources for grades K-5. TES, which started as a pullout to The Times in 1910 (Times Educational Supplement), is also the sister site to ShareMyLesson, maintained by the American Federation of Teachers.
