Embrace change through Teachers First

Between the 9 th and 21 st March the Teachers First education team delivered a workshop to 1,387 teachers. The theme was Learning and Teaching. The workshop covered a whole range of activities and strategies that participants could then take into their classrooms. By practising the activities in a workshop environment this gave the participants the confidence to try them in their own classrooms. Many mentioned that the development of Communities of Practice really enhanced their teaching and the feedback session at the end of the workshop allowed teachers an opportunity to reflect and share on their experience and learn from each other. A clear message coming out of the workshop are that teachers are willing to change, they want to embrace change to improve the lives of their students. Ms. Soaad Fawzy a teacher from El-Shahied Ziad Faragallah told one of the Teachers First education team: “I joined the project convinced that it was only useful for young teachers or people new to teaching. I didn’t think teachers who had been teaching for a long time like myself could change. I know, with my colleagues, feel we can lead change across Egypt, starting with my own school. Teachers First encouraged me to change my behaviours and acquire new skills from different areas that were impossible for me to acquire before”

Teachers First in action

We are no longer living in knowledge societies, we live in learning societies where knowledge has been commoditized, it is how knowledge is used and created that will transform economies, not knowledge itself. Teacher First in action across Egypt’s governorates.
