About the Blog

Teaching with Touchstone is a blog for teachers.  It looks at some of the functionality of Touchstone Online but its main goal is to help teachers settle into their new roles online.  The posts vary between practical advice and theoretical discussion so there should be something for everyone.  If there is something you’d like to read about but haven’t found it here yet, please do let us know!
