Global appeal spreads to India

Add India to the ever growing list of countries whose educators have toured Tech Valley High School (TVHS) in search for innovation in education.

Manit Jain, director of The Heritage Schools in India, will visit TVHS on April 24, in search of information on project-based learning and the teaching of deeper learning.

"The team at our schools is exploring novel ways of making our curriculum more meaningful and real for the students. This is a huge departure from the traditional rote and drill approach in most schools in the country and as we have learnt over the years, this is easier said than done," Jain said in email to TVHS professional development coach Stacia Snow.

"Having read about some of the exciting work that you have been doing, I am really keen to visit ... your school," he added.

The school is also providing assistance to educators from England and Australia this semester and has provided assistance to educators from counties around the globe. 

Last April, a delegation that included educators from Gambia, Romania, Peru and elsewhere toured the school. Other help has been sought by, and provided to educators from Russia, Thailand, China, Poland, Germany, Spain and Puerto Rico, just to name some of the locales.
