Teaching on line is too hard.
A lot of teachers are now teaching on line. Are you one of them? Have you ever done it before? The learning curve for teaching on line can be very steep if you haven’t done it before.
We become so set in one way of teaching that when we are forced to change,it can be difficult.
But there are some resources that can make it esier for us.One of these is twinkl.
What is a Twinkl?

On line sharing with students.
Transform your teaching by sharing any Twinkl resource with your children online. This step by step guide for teachers shows you how any Twinkl resource can be shared with your students. Your students can activate their devices for remote learning.
Save time distributing resources to groups of children and make your lesson stress-free. Their blog covers how to share Twinkl resources directly with your students using either a PIN code or Personal Child Logins method.
Sharing resources can change the way you teach and your students learn. It’ll help you to give your students something that is more interesting. They can watch videos they can look at anything you send. They can download or print what you have sent .
Online resource sharing also means you cut down on time spent at the printer and sending out emails and messages to your students.
With the methods that Twinkl have got to share the resources from your account you’ll spend less time on prep and have more time for teaching.
There are two methods of using Twinkl ‘lessons’ combining interactive and downloadable resources. Then sharing them quickly and easily with your class. Both are available as part of your regular Twinkl subscription. Yep, this one is not free.
- The PIN code method – which you have by default – allows you to share lessons, with a PIN code for each lesson.
- The Personal Child Login method – which you need to activate – allows you to share multiple lessons with custom groups, using the same login details every time.
PIN Code Method Summary
Using the PIN Code method, you put together resources for a ‘lesson’, get a PIN code for the lesson and the children access it via that PIN.
- You can share one ‘lesson’ at once with any child you’ve given the PIN to – one PIN per lesson
- There’s no need to set up child logins
- You have PIN code access by default, you don’t need to activate it
- You can use this method with any Twinkl subscription to share any site or resources your subscription covers. It’s included at no additional cost.
How Children Access Lessons via PIN-Code
Children log in at either twinkl.co.uk/go or twinkl.co.uk/share. They:
Enter the PIN for the particular lesson you want them to use
How to Share using Personal Child Logins
Personal Child Logins Summary
- You can group your children and deliver lessons and resources directly to groups – anyone in those groups will get the lessons automatically, with no need to share. So you can allocate any resource to your whole class or an individual..
- Your children log in the same way each time, with a class PIN, a username and password. They use the same PIN every time you allocate a lesson.
- Your children see every lesson and resource that’s currently allocated to them in their personal ‘My Lessons’ view.
- You can use this method with any Twinkl subscription.

Thanks for reviewing Twinkl. My friend is a teacher and he is quite desperate for acquiring additional income. I heard about Twinkl previously and it seems a good platform for teaching resources. Is there any buyback guarantee or free trial after signing up? I’ll share your article to him so he can directly read your reply too. Thanks
