Tool To Create Resources

Well of course, you could always make it! Teachers  are  always  being  encouraged  to make resources, and to share them with other teachers too. There are lots of tools available to help you do that, and this article is exploring one of the tools available to do  just  that.  Like  a  number of  tools,  this one  is open-source and  freely downloadable.  It has some tools that make it well suited to preparing resources for children from primary school age upwards. Pages that are created can be uploaded  to a website  for children to access from home as well as within school or you could load them into your Learning Platforms to support and encourage this sort of activity.
