Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Over the past 40 years, Latin America and the Caribbean has undergone an expansion of educational coverage that most countries have taken more than a century to experience. Additionally, the region remains encumbered with widespread areas of chronic poverty and unrest and failing infrastructures. As a result, schools, especially those in rural and/or marginalized communities, often find themselves employing teachers who have little experience, and no formal education training. This has a significant impact on teacher self-efficacy and, subsequently, in teaching quality.

In simple terms, a design team, led by Adam Holden (Cambridge University), has developed a mobile learning platform to deliver critical teaching insights easily and economically throughout the country of Panama, even to rural and/or marginalized communities. These 60-second “Thought of the Day” videos, take the very best research-based educational practice and present them to teachers through a mobile app “60 seconds at a time”!

The session discusses how this simple, innovative, and compelling use of media has had a significant impact on teachers, both in the way that they understand the skills required of quality teachers and in their daily practice.

Come and experience the app – up close and personal! And consider joining the global research project by partnering to serve teachers in your region of the world.
