Teacher Educator(Mathematics and Science)

Location: Bengaluru, India

IT for Change, an NGO that works on using Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for social change at global, national and local levels, requires high school Mathematics/ Science/ English teachers, fluent in English or Hindi with minimum 3 years experience as Project Leaders for teacher education and school improvement programmes. We are looking for teachers having an ambition to bring about systemic change in the quality of education offered in government schools.

Our work with the Department of Education, Government of Karnataka, has been in three broad areas:

(1) Working intensively, through the "Teachers Communities of Learning". program with a block of high schools in Bangalore to demonstrate ICT integration in curricular and pedagogical processes and share possibilities for systemic reforms with policy makers. This is being done through a teachers' community at the block level (similar to the state-wide forum). This programme includes teacher training workshops, projects with students and working in the classes with students and teachers.

(2) Working with the government to introduce new models of teacher training, integrating ICTs, in a pioneering programme called the Subject Teacher Forum. Over 2011-2016 , 22,000 government high school teachers have come together to form a network (the largest global professional community of teachers) to share ideas, experiences and resources for mutual learning and development. In these email groups, more than 130,000 emails have been exchanged to support teacher learning and professional development. This is a unique project across the country, pioneering new models of teacher development.

(3) Creation of educational resources collaboratively with the Karnataka Government school teachers. The resources are available in a repository called the “Karnataka Open Educational Resources” (KOER) in English and Kannada. More than 400 teachers have contributed 7,000+ content pages in mathematics, science, Kannada and social sciences to create digital teaching learning resources in text, animation, audio and video formats.

(4)We are working with the Telangana education department on their ICT@School program, which includes both the ‘Subject Teacher Forum’ and the ‘Telangana Repository of Open Educational Resources’ (TROER) projects.

(5)We are part of curriculum and syllabus projects in Karnataka and Telangana school education.

We also work teacher education institutions (DIETs) in different districts in Karnataka and the state level institutions – DSERT and RMSA on program and policy aspects and network with other NGOs and institutions working in Karnataka education. Our work has earned the appreciation of the review mission of Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India and many states in India are interested to adopt similar programs in teacher education.

More information on our work in education can be found in our Annual Report

The ideal candidates would be teachers with a deep subject understanding, with interest in exploring new perspectives in education, and willingness to engage with new processes of teaching-learning including the use of ICTs.

Job Profile:

  1. Development of digital curricular resources in different subject areas

  2. Visit schools regularly to assist the teachers in integrating new pedagogies in the classroom. This will involve developing lesson plans, documenting and transacting

  3. Work as a part of the education team at ITfC and conduct training programmes for the government school teachers and teacher-educators

  4. Exploring technology integration possibilities for the subjects mentioned, including exploring the use of educational software tools

  5. Contribute to building subject teacher networks within districts and across the state of Karnataka and other states in India.
