Teachers For The Future
Our highly skilled educational consultants reseach and collect pedagogical methods from all over the world. That is how we can guarantee that the methods have been tried and that they show results.
From LEGO's "6 bricks" method to the scientifically based "Creative Platform", we learn from the best and shape it to fit your needs.
Our program "Teachers For The Future" (TFTF) goes were the request is. Furthering the education and knowledge of local teachers in Africa, we base our courses on a culturally sensitive and respectful foundation.
All courses are specialized to suit the need and requirements of the specific school or institution. Our portfolio is ever expanding, and we keep our research and courses updated on all areas of social and educational science. Here is a quick introduction to a handful of the many themes we cover:
Science as well as national statistics from all over the world show that prosperity and development does not depend on what the students learn, but how they learn it (Harrison, Lawrense E. 1985). During this theme, we focus on the various educational and cognitive outcome of student-centered teaching methods.
Facts are stationery, thinking is movement. Societal and entrepreneurial innovation is based on the individual’s ability to use and put facts and thinking to practice. We will focus on various pedagogical practices that focus on cultivating an innovative way of thinking rather than installing facts in the minds of the students.
We will go thought the history of this particular pedagogical path and explore the tools, methods and results that have been scientifically proven to result in improved cognitive abilities to create and innovate.
We look at the various definitions of creativity as a concept and the pros and cons of the perspectives. We lay out a comprehensive approach for how a teacher can use these perspectives in practice, and how they may benefit the students in cultivating a mindset of development and innovation. We will furthermore provide a wide set of tools and methods that can be used in the classroom in order to encourage the creative mind.
This crucial theme handles the mechanism of the innovation process, and how it can be performed in the classroom. We provide both scientific and practical examples and methods that teachers can use in order to make students understand their own social and economical impact and possibilities and how they can benefit from these processes long after their education has finished.
This theme handles the scientific approach to learning, developed by Harvard professor Howard Gardener. We show examples of both theoretical and practical approaches and their results. This theme is then converted to fit to the specific institution and area, so that teachers can walk away with a tool set ready for implementation.
We show how to make the students get involved in creative processes that benefit from social interaction. Knowledge is handled as a collective entity and all ideas are considered valid and without judgement. Science shows that this approach is especially beneficial in the classroom, because students will experience an otherwise unattainable level of creativity and results.
All pedagogical methods will be presented as they can be used in the various subjects taught be the teachers. Whether you want to use LEGO’s “6 bricks”-method in a physics class or “The Creative Platform” in an English class, we provide practical methods for every possible subject.
We are conducting a course on innovative teaching methods and encouraging creative thinking in pupils at both two public primary schools and a private high school.
Our courses will center around building creative mindsets, integrating innovative projects in the teaching, and how to facilitate the creative talents of the students.
The courses in Burundi will be on developing creative teaching methods and using pedagogy to start innovative thinking in the students.
In collecting and researching pedagogical methods and their results, we have a wide range of tools to pick from acording to the demand we meet. We always specialize our courses tof it both culture, tradition, political or economical conditions facingg the teachers.
As an additional service, we provide articles written be our team of consultants. These articles will take you through the differnt scientific evidence, data, methods and implications. You can find these articles in our menu.
