The resources in TOI were user generated. This is the key principle behind the teacher’s portal.  As shared earlier, the Teacher Portal is a space for teachers to interact, discuss and reflect and share resources. Resources will be moderated by TOI, so as to ensure quality, relevance and appropriateness. The editors and SMEs of TOI, language experts and online peer reviewers will be handling all the resources.

TOI resources can be broadly categorized into Classroom Resources and resources for Teacher Development. Classroom Resources are those that teachers can use in class and they include Lesson Plans, Activities, Worksheets, Presentations, Games, Videos, E-books etc. Resources for Teacher Development are those that will help teachers grow professionally and they include Articles, Presentations, Audio and video files etc, that deal with the latest trends in pedagogy, educational psychology and successful practices in other parts of the world
