WES 2014 - Eduleaders- Bringing the Change in Education -Madhu Garg, Principal, Ram Krishna Vidya Mandir, Gwalior

  1. 1. EDULEADERS: BRINGING THE CHANGE IN EDUCATION Date: 07,08/08/2014 Presented By : Mrs. Madhu Garg Principal Ramakrishna Vidya Mandir (CBSE) Gwalior (M.P.) 474011
  2. 2. School Leadership is the process of enlisting and guiding the talents and energies of teachers, pupils and parents towards achieving common ‘Educational Goals’. In USA, called,’Educational Leadership’, in UK-’Educational Management’in late 20thcentury.There are currently 3800 specialist leaders of education.Our goal is to have 5000,by March’2015. Eduleaders should have quality of academics and academy transition,leadership of continuing professional development School business management,financial management, leadership of curriculum ,knowledge of all subjects,proper teacher’s training,proper behaviour and inbuilt descipline and regularity.They should also have a successful track record of working effectively within school and other schools.Eduleaders can make profound difference.
  3. 3. Principals Share Lessons Learned: Staffing Decisions, Bringing About School Change That principal is certainly not alone. Bringing about change in any organization whether a business, the government, or a school can be a very difficult proposition. The struggle to find ways to get teachers to accept and adapt to change is a universal one for school principals. Finding the right blend of diplomacy and chiding, professional development and empowerment, top-down delivery and delegation are just a handful of the issues principals must consider as they lead their schools toward change
  4. 4. How has public education changed in the last 100 years? 1914-2014
  5. 5. Principals Share Lessons Learned: Staffing Decisions, Bringing About School Change In my career as a principal was believing that everyone on the staff felt the same way I did about raising standards, improving academics, and reforming schools in general. when it comes to school reform and bringing about change about a third of the people will get on board with you, a third will be neutral, and the other third just don't care or might even sabotage your ideas. I came to the conclusion that with empowerment comes responsibility for the decisions made. Many teachers did not like the repercussions from parents, other staff, students, upper administration, and the community.
  6. 6. Principals Share Lessons Learned: Staffing Decisions, Bringing About School Change "I try to enlist those who are interested, lead those who aren't sure, and allow those who don't agree with me to continue in their current direction if they are successful at what they do. That allows for individuals to be individuals, and it allows individuals who are looking for professional development as a teacher to grow.“ "The lesson I learned was that collaboration and participation is imperative,“ "Without shared decisions, things don't work nearly as well as they could. With shared decisions, things take longer on the front end, but the end results are far better."
  7. 7. Principals Share Lessons Learned: Staffing Decisions, Bringing About School Change  Always tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. If you don't know the truth, you have to go out and find it.  If you make a mistake, admit it, say you are sorry, and try to fix it as best you can.  What we do is all about people, not policy. This is not to say that we don't follow the policy, but we have a lot of flexibility when deciding what is best for kids.  Sometimes you discipline children at school without notifying parents, because the home is not stable.  Finally, I have learned that if I had 96 hours every day, it wouldn't be enough. The most important thing I can do is smile, and make each person think I have all the time in the world to listen.
  8. 8. Technology as a tool for curriculum Design curriculum to build understanding of core subjects and interdisciplinary themes. Plan enriching curriculum with learning resources online. Implement with tools to develop skills, content knowledge, understanding and expertise.  Deliver with efficient time management. Enhance learning through Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation. Reinforce with regular feedback and customised reinforcement
  9. 9. Technology as a tool for learning environments Current trends of education as envisioned in CCE by CBSE transform the pedagogy by a shift from “instructivist” to “constructivist” education philosophies; a move from teacher- centred to student-centred learning activities; from a focus on local resources to global resources and an increased complexity of tasks with use of multi-modal information. Audio-visual aids, simulations, virtual manipulative, multi- media and online resources can be used to create learning environments that engage learners in experimenting, exploring and applying skills of analysis, interpretation, synthesis to create new concepts and validate their experiences. Technology can help create environment that supports differentiated teaching and learning.
  10. 10. Information Technology and the Purpose of Education While education in the past has been centered on teaching and learning, information technology has affected changes to the aims of education, therefore now education is increasingly perceived as the process of creating, preserving, integrating, transmitting and applying knowledge.
  11. 11. ICT (Information and communication Techonology) fulfills the following objectives in education  Increase Networking Opportunities: ICT helps to connect schools to other schools, as well as individuals within those schools to one another. This ability to network is especially important for students in rural areas and students in developing countries  Provide Distance Learning: With the advent of ICT, learning has become web-based. As a result, ICTs have started to replace correspondence schools.  SupplementTraditional Learning: One of the most common uses of ICT in education involves students using software programs for a variety of purposes.
  12. 12. Have these changed in the last 100 years? • Textbooks? • Communicating information to parents? • Written communication by students? • Times schools are open/closed? • School schedules? • The role of the teacher? • The role of the administrator?
  13. 13. Education Trends • Competition among schools for students, educators and funds is increasing. • Calls for education accountability at all levels are increasing. • More school districts and states are contracting for education services. • The demand for education professionals is rising.
  14. 14. Demographic Trends • "Minority" students are beginning to form the student majority. • School segregation is increasing. • Disproportionate numbers of women and children are filling the ranks of the poor. • The number of senior citizens is growing.
  15. 15. Technological Trends • Investments in technology infrastructure and equipment for schools are expanding. • Technology increasingly is being used to change what happens in the classroom or school.
  16. 16.  Limited access to primary and secondary education  Limited access to post-secondary education  Gender disparities in education enrollment in some countries  Rising violence in schools region-wide  Challenges with uncertified teachers and lack of teacher training  Physical infrastructure challenges, low spending and technology deficits limit the impact on educational access. Innovation in education REGIONAL CHALLENGES IN EDUCATION
  17. 17. Innovation in education • In general the current education system is debilitated by low accessibility and low levels of educational achievement although there are exceptions. • Radical change to our approach to education is required. • Part one - Focus on the development of a creative and innovative citizen • Part two - Focus on education reforms to foster critical thinking, an innovative mindset and entrepreneurial spirit.
  18. 18. THE CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE CITIZEN • Goal: To achieve a Knowledge-Based Economy • The cultivation of creative and innovative people • Foster natural creativity and a mind-set to convert challenges to opportunities, problem identification and solution finding • Teaching flexibility, positivity and the power of perspective.
  19. 19. • Developing Creativity at Home » Education starts in the home. Parents need to create a home environment that encourages individuality, creativity, idea development and problem solving. The skills and talents of children should be groomed at a young age and they should be taught how to view challenges as opportunities. • Developing Creativity at School • The structure of the current schooling system is geared towards standardized testing following a strict curriculum which does not lend to exploring the imagination and latent talents. • We must re-think the principles which govern the current education system. THE CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE CITIZEN
  20. 20. • Educate to Innovate • The education system needs to be more focused on developing attitudes that can lead to innovative ideas. The education system should ideally foster innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship. • By honing students’ talents and channeling their creativity, entrepreneurial attitudes can be fostered. Entrepreneurship education should be integrated into all educational levels of curricula. • Students need to stop being job seekers but rather critical thinkers, business creators and innovators. THE CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE CITIZEN
  21. 21. • The Conditions for nurturing creativity • Self-confidence • Critical Thinking • Collaborative engagement • Multi-disciplinary and multi-talented work teams THE CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE CITIZEN
  22. 22. • Developing The conditions for nurturing creativity • The innovative citizen is a critical thinker, a problem solver and a life-long learner. • To foster the development of the innovative system we require transformations in education, with a specialized focus on activity-based learning, action solutions thinking, and stimulating the quest for knowledge and for answers. THE CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE CITIZEN
  23. 23. Transformations in Education • Transformation of the Curriculum • Learning at the centre • Education for personal liberation and multiple perspectives • Data-driven teaching and assessment of reality • Openness to new learning and new learning experiences • Collaborative knowledge creation • Learning beyond conventional notions of time and space
  24. 24. • Transformation of the Nature of the Classroom • Using Technology as an enabler of education • Interactive and activity-based learning • From theory to practice VS from practice to theory • Student leaders • Teacher as mentor, mediator and coach • A classroom beyond walls • Multiple classrooms, same lessons, multiple perspectives Transformations in Education
  25. 25. • Transformation of the Nature of the Classroom Activity-based learning • Innovative concept bringing real-world applicability to abstract learning concepts • Sparks greater inquiry into concepts and assists in the development of critical thinking. • A feature of the bottom-up approach to learning • The student experience at the centre of the learning process Transformations in Education
  26. 26. • Character of the Learning Experience • The approach to learning should focus on bottom-up learning and peer-learning rather than the traditional top-down approach • Education, teaching and learning should focus on the development of critical thinking and problem solving • Changing role of the teacher as teaching becomes a dialogue. Transformations in Education
  27. 27. • Character of the Learning Experience Improving Teacher Quality • Improve the recruitment and selection process of teachers • The teaching career should be made more attractive, teachers need to be regarded as professionals • Teacher training should be continuous and reflect changes in the educational environment e.g. technological advancements to improve learning. Teacher training programs need to be accredited. • More emphasis should be placed on rewarding effective teaching Transformations in Education
