Constructivist teaching methods are IMHO essential, especially as we move into this new world with such powerful tech tools being at our disposal. More experienced staff haven’t had the exposure one would expect but all the prac students currently at the school are conversant with this theory.

Systematic planning for TPL can take place as whole school systems are developed strategically eg using IWBs, laptops, Moodle and the philosophy of constructivist pedagogy using ICT. This link may help you understand Moodle.
