In the final session I’m covering today at @LearnTechUK, Michael Edwards & Maya Harris from @McKinsey share their internal process to help informal #learning happen more often & more systematically. I look forward to telling you all their secrets in this thread #LT23UK #T2S3
Neither Michael nor Maya are active on Twitter (sad times) but if you wanted to know what they look like and what they do - here you go! At McKinsey Michael is Global Leader, Way We Work Director of People & Ops. Maya is a Senior Learning Manager. #LT23UK #T2S3 Introducing Michael and Maya
In this session we’ll be talking a lot about #apprenticeship but not in the the traditional sense. At @McKinsey they use the word “apprenticeship” to mean #OnTheJob #Learning on the job. This is really important for the context of the session (& this thread). #LT23UK #T2S3

A month or so ago, the Republican Party floated a “Proposed” 2023 budget.

I screenshot some of the “proposed” cuts they suggested making to “reduce the deficit.”

#Lisbon #Diversity
#FaranaSadrudin was killed by the knifeman in the attack on the religious centre in Lisbon

Officers said they fired at him when he ignored orders to drop his weapon and started walking towards them. The knifeman was transported to the São José Hospital in a serious condition
Teresa Pinto added in an online tribute to Mariana: 'How cruel this world can be. Portugal opens its arms to those in need and this is the payback.

'Mariana Jadaugy, you will always be in my heart as that happy, friendly and generous woman.'

"The day I got my postgraduate degree, I didn’t waste a minute– I rushed back to my village, Ausgrum in Bengal, to become a teacher.

#Inspiration #Teacher #Education #PadmaShri #SeniorCitizens #HeroesOfHumanity #WestBengal
Yes, I had higher salary offers from schools in bigger towns, but for me, the 169 Rs I was offered at my school village meant everything.

I was hungry for teaching the students from my town who needed a good teacher the most.
I taught at my school for 39 years and only retired because I’d hit my ‘retirement age’– 60; what a ridiculous concept!

Afterwards, I expected to spend years drinking sugary tea and wasting my time on the charpoy!

THREAD: We have been tracking Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ policy promises from his campaign in 2018. Here’s where his promises stand on the environment, teacher salaries, health care costs, and more:… Image
When he ran for governor, Ron DeSantis pledged to protect and enhance Florida’s air quality. Although he didn't institute clean air policies immediately, metrics suggest air quality has improved. We rated this promise a Compromise.
DeSantis said he’d advocate to broaden access to mental health and substance abuse treatment in Florida. He put money behind these initiatives and we rated this promise Kept.

How do you find true #Teacher, #Jyotishi, #Guru & #Student.

It's not easy to find Truthful Teacher, Guru & a Good Jyotishi who can guide you toward rightful, dharmik & Genuinely can give advice as this is the only relationship which carry forwarded from many birth journeys
as it has strong karma attached between both the Guru & Student from many lives of both the people, once the karma is fulfill then there is no attachment between two souls as next path is toward Moksha & Jeevan mukti. It's the desire which bound two souls via Dharma & karma
That's the reason we take birth to complete those unfinished business via either meeting a Bonafide guru, Teacher & Jyotishi because both has selfless give and take relationship toward each other one of best Example is Lord Shuru Krishna & Arjuna, vivekananda & Ramakrishna etc

On the occasion of #TeachersDay2022, we would like to remember & highlight some instances of cruel suffering that #Tibetan teachers have been enduring at the hands of #CCP in #Tibet.
#CCP ordered the closure of Sengdruk Taktse school in Darlak in eastern #Tibet where #RinchenKyi was the longest-serving #teacher. Without giving any official reason she was taken from her home on charges of “inciting separatism”.

#TeacherInTibet @NetTibet @UNESCO @SaveTibetOrg
Kunkhen, a Tibetan #teacher was apprehended by #CCP at the age of 34 & in good health. When he was released on 21 August 2016, his eyesight & hearing were failing & lips gnarled. His waning vision could escalate into blindness. #JusticeForTibet

उद्या, म्हणजे ५ सप्टेंबर रोजी शिक्षकदिन साजरा होणार, त्यानिमित्त खरे शिक्षण कशाला म्हणावे जाणून घेणे अगत्याचे वाटले. म्हणून स्वामी विवेकानंद याचे शिक्षण विषयक विचार जाणून घेऊयात, जे मला भावले.

#TeachersDay #teacher #SwamiVivekananda
1. शिक्षण म्हणजे मनुष्याच्या ठिकाणी जे पूर्णत्व आधीचेच विद्यमान आहे त्याचे प्रकटीकरण.

2.शिक्षण कशाला म्हणावयाचे ? पुस्तके वाचण्याला ? नाही. निरनिराळ्या प्रकारचे ज्ञान मिळविण्याला ? नाही.
ज्या शिक्षणाद्वारा इच्छाशक्तीचा प्रवाह आणि अभिव्यक्ती ही आपल्या स्वतःच्या ताब्यात येतात आणि फलद्रुप होतात त्यालाच शिक्षण म्हणावे.

3. मी शिकवितो ही भावना जर शिक्षकाच्या मनात जागृत राहील तर सगळेच काम बिघडले म्हणून समजावे.

Whenever I come across an attempt to promote #homeschooling in India, I feel compelled to discourage it as a responsible citizen and a conventional educator. Since this video is no different, here is another 'homeschool-bashing' #thread.

@SamrajSanjana & @aramanujaa are great tweeple to follow. I am merely voicing my disagreement with the idea of #homeschooling in India here, and it has nothing against them, personally. They are amazing people, from what I know about them so far.
My 'resistance' to #homeschooling in India is not the mere fear of a 'traditional' teacher about a new and revolutionary education movement. Like many of you, I loved the idea of the possibility of #homeschooling in India when I first heard about it.

1/n Thread: In Defense of a Member of the Fraternity
1. As a #teacher, I teach students from different age groups. Some will use their interactions to share their frustrations, love stories and more. I do Not Judge the student and most definitely not the parents. ImageImage
2/n The parent in question seems to have found the teacher's attire on a public platform objectionable. Point noted. What is unjustified is the 'reaction'. At 18, young adults are exploring their own sexuality gender irrespective. Instead of that sharp reaction...
3/n Had the parent sat the young man down and told him to respect his teacher's privacy, it would have taught the 18 yr old respect.
Instead you have a parent already rating, berating and judging the teacher for something she doesn't owe anyone an explanation.

From a labour to School Principal!

Throughout my walk I have met thousands of people and many out of them have had much inspiring life, I met one such person today.

Meet Mr. Ishwar Harchand Badgujar, principal of Govt School, Mukti in Dhule district.
He comes from a tribal poor family of Dhule district. In his early age, he started working as a sweeper in a factory to support his family.

It was very rare for a person in that area to study as education was hardly available nearby. But he knew the value of it,
so he decided to study in evening classes after work.

Many people suggested him to drop his education but he was firm to study.

He became first graduate in his area and that’s why he got a job of teacher in this school.

His efforts and hardwork earned him the position of

"To upgrade oneself, the object to work on is our brain. The process may include unlearning to learn and learning to unlearn. Whichever is the case the #brain can never be over exploited.

In every ideal #society, learning is required for universal relevance and/
acceptance. Anyone who cease to learn cease to grow and signed in for demotion or #stagnancy.

Engaged in a discussion with one of my sons this morning, I made him realized there are ways we learn without alerting our #teacher in quote, so learning may be cheap atimes./

However, active learning comes by deep interactions between the master and the learner. It's therefore extremely tedious and most time not #achievable to be a master of what is not deeply learnt or handed over to one by a sacrificial #learning act.

High levels of an #infection in #Massachusetts is causing both gastrointestinal (#diarrhoea, #vomiting) & respiratory (#cough, #sinus, #headache) symptoms WITHOUT typical fever or runny nose - School children & parents/guardians across #boston suburbs affected for last 3 weeks.
Note the CDC data suggests very little SARS-CoV-2 (Omicron) or influenza (flu) at this time in Massachusetts or Connecticut or New Hampshire. So diagnostic tests being used are not catching this circulating pathogen, or a seasonal coronavirus/norovirus/adenovirus is the culprit
According to the data on SARS-CoV-2-positive PCR tests there is very low levels of COVID-19 over last 3 weeks in Massachusetts, CT, NH, RI & VT. Yet there are several #school #children, #teachers and #parents with gastrointestinal & respiratory #infection symptoms in these states Image

With that said, #OnThisDay in 1865, Dr. John Rock became the first African American admitted to the bar of the United States Supreme Court. This occurred the same day President Lincoln signed the 13th Amendment. #History #HistoryMatters #USHistory #AmericanHistory
John Rock lived an extraordinary life. He was a teacher, a prolific abolitionist writer and speaker, a dentist, medical doctor, and lawyer. Rock was born a free man in New Jersey in 1825 and became a teacher at age 19 while studying medicine. #Abolitionist #Teacher

The research titled ‘The Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Teachers’ was conducted by Turkish #Maarif Foundation in 25 countries across the #world to understand how the teachers and school administrators have been affected by the #pandemic. Image
After analysing the responses, 5 main #themes emerged by how the teachers and school administrators react to the #Covid19 Pandemic, which changed the all #education. Here is the thread with the findings from the research, and more will be discussed at the #IstanbulEducationSummit
The coping strategy is the most dominant main theme used by the participants to manage the challenges faced during the #pandemic. There are also subthemes under the coping strategy such as turning into an opportunity, crisis management, #adaptation, #occupation, #solidarity, etc. Image

The most amazing classroom I've ever entered is in the Govt Inter College (GIC) in Dudhli village, near Dehradun. It's a mathematics lab, and the #teacher who envisioned this is Jagdamba Prasad Dobhal. People in Dudhli choose GIC over private schools. It's not hard to think why.
The first time I entered this lab, I saw students with spherical stones. Mr Dobhal had taught them about the 'sphere' and had asked them to fetch stones of that shape from the nearby jungle. In the stones, the 2D circle had suddenly jumped out of the paper and had come alive.
While I spoke to Mr Dobhal, the students suddenly started playing. Few played chess, few others played ludo. "What just happened," I asked Mr Dobhal. He said the rules of the classroom were that when he was busy, the students must play games instead of wasting time chatting.

The so called Maharaja of Dhar got a call from his son's school's housemaster (The Daly College, Indore), requesting the school fee, while this jerk was having his breakfast. Listen to the conversation and be prepared to get shocked.…
My few cents:
1. If you have a problem with the school charging the fee during the pandemic, feel free to take your child out of the school and enrol in any other school of your choice.
2. No one speak to a #teacher the way this jerk spoke, he should apologise, PERIOD
3. People with such temperament must know the repercussions of such acts, one of which is certainly a wrong upbringing and the impact on their child.
4. Such people should be publicly shamed and should be taught a lesson.
