ALfA Across Borders

Universal literacy and numeracy is a sustainable development goal. In low- and middle-income countries recent events, the pandemic, school closures have left 70% of 10-year-old unable to read or understand a simple text.

ALfA is our research-backed solution for these challenges. ALfA is a reverse methodology that uses cognitive mind connections, and self-led peer work to make learning accelerated and joyful. ALfA learning integrates the 21st century skills of collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, citizenship and character.

Montessori Teacher Empowerment

The Montessori method and the use of Montessori materials are significant to the early years of a child's education. Hands-on learning tools are designed to provide children with opportunities to discover key learning outcomes through repetition and practice. Each material teaches one skill at a time and is intentionally designed to support independent learning and problem-solving. We need teachers well versed in Montessori methods. Therefore, our Montessori training headed by Ms Indu Eisenberg focused on equipping teachers with Montessori skills through demonstration, hands-on practise and theoretical presentations.

  • Assisting Pre-primary teachers to be Montessori experts
  • Helping them discover the interests of each student’s learning style, and their personality through observation
  • Understanding when students are open to learning is important so that lessons of higher order can be incorporated.

Blended & Hybrid Teaching

The main focus in blended learning is to find a combination of synchronous and asynchronous teaching. It is about finding the right mix from all the possibilities in learning, like how to modify a lesson plan for online teaching, how to design activities, assignments and assessments.

OUTCOMES: Blended learning enables the student to access the materials from anywhere at any time while enjoying the benefits of face-to-face support and instruction. Self-pacing for slow or quick learners reduces stress, increases satisfaction, and information retention

  • Session 1: Effective Remote Teaching, Synchronous & Asynchronous
  • Session 2: Making Lessons & Flipping
  • Session 3: Quizzes, Rubrics, Self & Peer Learning
  • Session 4: Assessing for Success

Montessori & Curriculum Training

Montessori training was conducted to upskill the Pre-primary teachers with ways of handling Montessori material, planning of lessons, needs of a Montessori class, the importance of Hands-on learning.

Teachers learnt about providing a creative and responsive environment that enables teachers to explore their hidden brilliance and also encourages them to excel without any exception.

OUTCOMES: Instead of teaching the children according to the prescribed curriculum, Montessori education focuses on the elaborate methods of hands-on learning. In this education system, children are allowed to do what they feel like. This helps in exploring their ideas and talent, untangling their mental restrictions.

The role of a teacher in a Montessori class was demonstrated with the help of activities and demonstration of handling Montessori material.

Decoding Nep 2020

  • Guiding Principles of NEP 2020
  • Pre-Primary to High School Curriculum
  • Teacher Appraisal, School Audit and Assessments

Recognising the ‘Power of Teacher’ NEP 2020 has put in place systemic reforms that would help ‘teaching’ emerge as an striking profession of choice for optimistic and talented young minds. It proposes several reforms to empower teachers and ‘restore the high respect and status’ to this profession hoping that it would eventually attract the best minds and talent to choose teaching as their profession.

The NEP 2020 talks of creating performance standards for teachers clearly spelling out the role of the teacher at different levels of expertise/stage and competencies required for that stage.

For the first time, students are kept as the ‘focal point’ of the entire policy. The policy reflects the 5 ‘I’s – Indian, Internationalism, Impactful, Interactive and Inclusive – while beholding itself on the principles of equity, quality and access. Through the policy we will bring transformational changes for students making them adapt to the skills of the 21st century at both school and higher education levels.

The National Education Policy 2020 is also cognizant of the digital divide and at the same time recognizes the importance of leveraging the advantages of technology while acknowledging its potential risks and dangers.

STEAM Education & Modern Classroom

Resource Person- Mohsina Mirza, GETI Trainer

A modern classroom is created when three key elements come together in harmony: the space, the technology, and the pedagogy. The education sector is looking beyond smart classrooms towards hands-on learning and STEAM enhancement. STEAM Education focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

Research shows that children develop an interest in STEM fields at an average age of eight. STEM education is the need of the hour to help students make the leap from users of technology to innovators.

GETI conducted the STEAM Learning program in three sessions, one orientation followed by two separate sessions for till Primary & Junior grades respectively.
