Teacher development has existed for a long time and in history there are excellent examples of teachers who have continuously sought deeper knowledge and wider perspectives through their own study and participation in a community of colleagues. On the other hand 'Teacher Development (fD)' as a concept has come up more recently and is in fact interwoven with the rise and rapid growth of IT in education. One can say that TD in this respect is both a result of IT and a pre-requisite for a quality in the use of IT in education.
