Education is a fast-growing sector that has witnessed many changes over the past couple of years. One of the main changes is the introduction of the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), a document produced by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) regarding the future of education in the country. One of the most pressing matters addressed by NEP 2020 is the issue of teacher education (section 15).
It is imperative that as technology changes with time, so should the education system. To keep up with the change in technology, teachers need to upskill themselves as well, not only to help them operate in the new environment they have but also to upscale themselves to take their lessons to the next level. This is where Teachmint can help.
Teachmint is partnering with OrangeSlates, a top teacher upskilling forum, to promote reliable and constant upskilling of school teachers all over India. Through this partnership, we offer various teacher training programs for educators to know, train, upskill, exercise, and revisit topics as and when required.
How Teachmint Promotes Teacher Upskilling
For teachers, some ideal practices need to be followed to deal with upskilling positively. Here are some essential teacher training programs that our partnership with Orangeslates provides to handle teacher upskilling in a better way:
Be an Assertive Communicator
Communication and interaction are the keys to enhancing the bond between a student and teacher. This course makes way for holistic education and impactful interactions. It will act as a guide to let teachers learn and improve their communication effectiveness. Only communication can help guide the students thoroughly in the learning process which will also help the students understand their assignments in the right way. Besides this, learning is a two-way methodology while the teacher helps a student grow academically, the student can help the teacher decode any sort of roadblock that may come while handling the online tool or technical aspects.

Socio-Emotional Learning in Everyday Classrooms

To ensure this is done in the right way, the educators get access to three model lesson plans based on precise models and can explore various teacher upskilling programs for implementing SEL skills in everyday classroom teaching. Teachers must consider every obstacle as a new learning opportunity.
Along with academic performance, teachers need to work on their personality development. Soft skills are becoming vital in every line of work. These skills help build leadership qualities, non-verbal and verbal communication, and critical thinking. These interpersonal skills will help educators with their personal growth, help them understand the views of other people, and improve their communication skills.
