Welcome! The TEL:Explorer pages are designed to support teachers when planning, designing and delivering learning with technology. Use this site to:
- Search for a tool or pedagogy using the search boxes on the right.
- Click the Pedagogy FIRST tools to the right to see suggested TEL tools for each approach
- Search by technology type using the Technologies tab above to see the types of technologies available.
