What is a Toolkit?

There are very many published resources, including those on paper (such as books) and those online, which are designed to support teachers in their classrooms. For example, there are lesson ideas, lesson plans, practical ideas, tips for teachers, professional development activities and research. The term ‘toolkit’ in relation to resources available to teachers is becoming increasingly popular but there does not seem to be any general agreement about what a ‘toolkit’ is.
