About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

This platform has been made to facilitate all the teachers as teachers’ training purpose within the shortest possible time. It has increased the capacity of our teachers to produce content and innovative implementations in the classroom more effectively.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

Teachers can upload videos, blogs and publications on various topics ranging from general academic subjects to madrasas and technical subjects. A content repository is maintained where multimedia educational contents are stored, accessed and shared freely amongst teachers. Fellow teachers can post comments which help content creators to improve by peer feedback. Every fortnight, teachers are categorically recognized as best content developers, innovative teachers, one institution head for leadership, and best online performers based on various criteria including their online rating by users. Some teachers are also endorsed as ICT4E ambassadors in their respective school districts and play pioneering roles in teaching-learning development. Via the ICT4E ambassadors the practice is spreading all over the country, allowing more citizens to enjoy the benefits of this platform.

How has it been spreading?

Bangladesh has nearly 1 million teachers in over 120,000 primary, secondary and tertiary institutions. Over 60% of teachers all over Bangladesh have developed their communication skills after being a part of Teacher’s Portal, 55% improved their skills for content creation, and 23% teachers have enhanced their classroom facilities. Several workshops are conducted annually to collect data, scope areas of improvement and needs analysis of users.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

It can be further replicated if the opportunity arises at international partnership levels. Please contact: Future of Education team's Avijit Saha, Partnership Coordinator (Education Innovation) at avijit.saha@a2i.gov.bd

Impact & scalability

HundrED Academy Reviews

If we are to help our children learn better, teachers need to become learners first. And I feel this is a great platform where teachers can learn and also share their ideas. I see a lot of Cross Pollination of ideas amongst teachers here.

This innovation features a modular and adjustable design, allowing educators to tailor the implementation to suit individual needs. The ambassador role will foster the utilisation of this platform.
