OrangeSlates, one of the fastest-growing teacher skilling platforms has announced the second edition of India’s largest learning festival ‘The Learn Fest 2022’ for educators with the theme ‘Taking NEP 2020 into classrooms. The aim of this edition is to translate the various learning pedagogies and teaching strategies recommended in the policy into applicable practices for each teacher.
Critical to the current ecosystem, the way we perceive classrooms has evolved. From physical spaces to online rooms and back to hybrid classrooms – educators & learners alike have experienced the changing modalities, evolved pedagogies and innovative practices. Another shot in the arm is the National Education Policy 2020. Some brilliant strategies are underway to bring out a more sustainable adoption of the NEP at a school & classroom level. These need to enter the classroom to make an impact and to encourage change and adoption.
The two-day fest will commence on the 25th June, to go up to 26th June with sessions around two key facets of the policy – Integration & Innovation with engaging training sessions on Strategic Approach to Technology Integration, collaborative learning, innovative learning, multidisciplinary learning and a lot more.
The first edition of the Learn Fest witnessed 27,000 participants and the edtech startup is aiming to reach over 50,000 teachers for part two of the fest. They are offering a series of 8 power packed interactive sessions for educators from some of the best trainers & speakers such as Dr Ameeta Mullah Wattal, Chairperson & Executive Director Education, Innovations and Training- DLF Foundation Schools & Scholarship Programmes, Dr Vrinda Dutta, Director – Center for Early Childhood Education and Development (CECED) at Ambedkar University Delhi, Dr Francis Joseph, MD – Crimson Group of Schools & Co-Founder, School Leaders Network Foundation. Similar to its previous edition, the Learn Fest 2022 is free of cost teachers and educators in general to learn the critical teaching strategies as NEP 2020 is greatly being adopted in the country’s educational landscape.
