Teachers Communities of Learning (TCOL)

TCOL aims to bring together the subject teachers working in a block together, through physical interactions supplemented and complemented by virtual interactions. The project aims to:

  1. Support teachers to interact with one another, for peer learning and mentoring, within a 'community of learning '
  2. Support schools and teachers to learn and adopt ICTs in a variety of ways, for both their own development as well as for their teaching-learning processes
  3. Demonstrate a model of ICT integration in teaching-learning
  4. Identify possibilities for systemic reforms and policy
  5. Integrate the above into the curricular and pedagogical processes of the education system.

The project will have two strands of work:

  1. Teacher training workshops anchored in the DIET for a structured course around ICT integration for two identified subjects (to be identified in discussion with the DIET and block administration)
  2. School-based intensive work to demonstrate and train in ICT integration in teaching-learning and administrative processes
