Welcome to Educational Resource Centre! Main purpose of this page is to promote the use of educational resources (both digital and physical) in our classrooms. This page is useful for teachers, students, parents and whoever is interested in using educational resources. We are offering links to various digital resources, annotated lists of selected physical and digital resources, videos on some of the resources, useful literature around resources and announcements of our upcoming public events. We would also like to hear from you about your experiences and queries.

Educational Design: We offer Educational Design course/workshop to teachers, educators, curriculum designers and introduce to “Design Thinking” methodology for creating meaningful, pedagogically valid teaching-learning resources. The workshop/course aims to help participants: (1) Challenge their assumptions and discover new ways of exploring, creating and curating tools and resources for addressing teaching-learning problems. There is focus on analysing their own context and identifying affordances and limitations of digital learning therein. (2) Engage in constructing and repurposing lesson plans that can be implemented/taught using constructivist pedagogies and pedagogy content knowledge (PCK)
We arrange various seminars, workshops, courses etc. for teachers, educational researchers and everyone interested in education. Here are the upcoming events.

Physical ResourcesEducational resources or Teaching Learning Materials (TLMs) can provide a great way to engage students with difficult concepts in an interesting way. If students are given a chance to explore a well designed TLM they usually learn enough to understand the content in a much deeper way. Teachers need to ensure that students are learning the intended concept and then formalize the knowledge gained by students by providing terms and formulae and so on. Well designed resources lend themselves well to constructive pedagogies. Teachers can always prepare resources of their use but some resources are prepared by experts in the field and tried and tested over years. This page lists some of the physical resources along with their basic information. You are welcome to visit ERC to explore these resources or you can watch videos if such videos are available. You can buy some of the resources for your school if such budgets are available or you can make some of the resources yourself for your classroom. Here is a list of some of the most useful resources.

With advancement in digital technology and increasing availability of computers and smartphones digital educational resources have become another key area which all teachers should be aware of to teach their subject. In fact knowledge about the digital educational resources, best way to use them and their advantages and limitations is known as ‘technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK). TPCK is considered an essential aspect of teachers’ knowledge by some researchers. Here we are listing some of the main portals where you can find useful resources.

It is important to remember that not all digital resources lend themselves to constructivist pedagogies. Our own digital resources are designed by researchers in education where active learning is encouraged along with collaboration and authentic context for students.
