A Community for Educators

“Learning is not an individual pursuit. Cognitive neurosciences also confirm that learning is community-driven, decentralized, small and cross-platform. The better teachers create a synergy by sharing a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.

This Academic Support is an invitation to join head, heart and hands together as a ‘community of practice’ to evolve a shared vision and to create and share some of the best teaching-learning resources.

Please log on to register your feedback on existing KClass or ask for additional resources for your subject.”
