Principal function(s): Autonomous learningEducational sharing

ReadWriteThink is an educational platform for teachers, pupils, and parents. It offers peer-reviewed resources for students from kindergarten to 12th grade, which could be useful for teachers of English as a foreign language. There are resources that can help them plan and prepare their lessons regarding a variety of school levels and subjects. An example of that is the “Trading Card Creator”. ReadWriteThink is powered by the USA National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). Evaluation: ReadWriteThink offers teacher-made resources that cover virtually all areas of knowledge and whose content is open and free. There are many interactive tools which can help teachers prepare their lessons and pupils develop their skills in a pleasant and interesting way. It can thus be a great time-saving tool for educators. Moreover, there are many guides and tools which can help teachers in their professional development. Regarding the “Trading Card Creator”, this function could be a creative way to get mainly younger pupils engaged. The copyright policy implies that teachers can use the material, but not re-publish it. There is no need to install or login into the tool.
