The TCOL program attempts to demonstrate how technology can support the improvement of educational outcomes at a school level through a community of learning approach. The program attempts to build communities at multiple levels - within the school, across different subject teachers, and across the schools in the Bengaluru South 3 block.

This is the third phase of the program, working with government aided schools in Bengaluru South 3 block. The program attempts to expand and deepen the work done in the second phase TCOL from 2014-17 which had focused on government high schools.

The program will work with a sustained focus on teacher professional development, school and classroom processes development as well as on overall school development, which integrates the use of technology in meaningful and sustainable ways.

Objectives of the mathematics program

  1. To support teacher capabilities for improving mathematics teaching learning
    1. To demonstrate methods of T-L that support mathematical thinking and ability
    2. Building problem solving and critical thinking
    3. Making mathematics relevant by making the students engage with mathematics
    4. Making the classroom inclusive
    5. Building mathematical competences for higher education in mathematics
  2. To develop curricular materials for supporting teaching learning and uploading on KOER
  3. To develop curricular materials for supporting teacher professional development on
  4. To deepen a techno-pedagogic understanding in mathematics teaching learning
  5. To build a community of learning for sustained and continuous teacher professional development through sharing experiences, ideas and best practices

Program strategies

The program will adopt multiple strategies towards the attainment of these objectives. Some of the strategies include:

Teacher capacity building (blended mode)

  1. Teacher workshops for learning new ideas, tools and methods in mathematics teaching learning
  2. Supporting teachers in resource creation
  3. Supporting teachers to participate, learn share and mentor in online forums - email groups and Telegram groups
  4. Online courses for continuous learning
  5. Periodic resource sharing with teachers through KOER

School based demonstrations

  1. Demonstration in classroom - team teaching using a variety of resources
  2. Developing projects for students, teachers that are collaborative and inter disciplinary
  3. Working with the ICT lab with educational tools
  4. Designing formative assessments with hands-on activities
  5. Designing summative assessments with a focus on critical thinking/ problem solving

Learning sharing events

  1. Intra-school and inter-school events like math melas, exhibitions,
  2. Invited talks by resource persons on mathematics teaching learning in collaboration with Vijaya Teachers' College
  3. Teacher seminars and events for reflective writing and sharing by teachers on experiences of mathematics teaching.
