Dean-recommended resource for teachers and schools systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Andreas Schleicher, the Director of the OECD Directorate for Education and Skills, published a brief document today that provides some insight into how teachers and school systems might consider responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. The brief was developed from the 2018 Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) that asked over 250,000 teachers and school leaders from almost 50 countries about how we might best face the diverse challenges that are in front of us.
Four main themes are presented in today’s briefing: 1) leveraging technology to support teaching and learning, 2) empowering teachers and enabling them to innovate, 3) recognizing and encouraging the social connectedness of schools as learning communities, and 4) targeting leadership efforts to make a difference.
I think it is worth the time for you to read it:
