This ebook showcases the best practices of school leadership of school leaders (students, teachers and, principals) in India. It is a testament to the impact our programs have had on the leaders we work with. We believe that these practices will inspire and guide others on their own educational leadership journey.
When the global pandemic began, staff, teachers, and alumni of Teach For All network partners leveraged their leadership to ensure that students were safe and could continue learning. Stories, strategies, and successes shared across the global network helped to accelerate impact and drive innovation. Network partners continued to redesign and implement new ways of working, teaching, and learning. Many of these discoveries are informing their work far beyond distance learning. As such, we posed this question to the network: “What are you learning from the crisis?” We listened to teachers, teacher coaches, senior leaders, and alumni across our network to understand their experiences and the lessons they’ve learned. We then synthesized them into insights and examples around three questions:
- How can technology continue to make teaching and learning more accessible for teachers and students? in Arabic, English, French, Russian, Spanish
- How can teaching and learning continue to be grounded in the real needs of students and a learner-centered approach? in Arabic, English, French, Russian, Spanish
- How can a wider community of stakeholders continue to contribute to engage in the education of students? in Arabic, English, French, Russian, Spanish
