Contributing a resource

Teaching and learning sequences

Please read the Contribution terms and conditions.

If you contribute a teaching and learning sequence, it will be assessed by the site facilitator before being published online. This will usually take about three days. The facilitator may contact you to suggest small changes before publication. (You’ll be notified if your sequence isn’t accepted, and you’ll be able to contact the facilitator for more information.)

Other resources

Other resources are shared via the Wiki or Teacher Resource Exchange. This material is ‘checked’ (rather than assessed) by the facilitator. This usually happens within two or three days.

Before sharing a resource, please ensure the following:

  1. Brandnames (such as iPod, PowerPoint or Gladwrap) are not be visible in images or used in audio files. (Use descriptions, such as ‘mp3 player’, ‘online presentation’ or ‘clingfilm’.)
  2. You have permission from anyone whose voice or image is used in the resource. (This is because the resource will be publicly available on this website.)
    Download permission form for using audio, photo or video. (This is for a young person but can be adapted if seeking permission from an adult.)
  3. Your resource is original. (Make sure you don’t include material that is copyright protected or produced by another person, without seeking permission and acknowledging that person.)
  4. Your resource does not contain material that is offensive or defamatory.
  5. Your resource doesn’t include information that may compromise the privacy of another person (eg, personal contact details) unless you have their permission.
