Skilled programming and lesson planning are a critical part of teaching. Searching for, verifying and adapting quality resources, however, can take teachers significant time.
The development and sharing of centralised, high quality resources for optional and on-demand use by teachers is in progress. By ensuring these are easily accessible, searchable and adaptable, teachers can be better supported through curriculum changes, making it easier to personalise and differentiate learning to the specific needs of students.
These resources are being developed by teachers for teachers and will be made available to schools following feedback provided by teachers and leaders in curriculum early adopter schools.
