Kaltura, the leading video experience cloud, announced today that it has been selected by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an international, intergovernmental institution, to power OECD’s Global Teaching InSights (GTI) initiative. The OECD will use Kaltura’s innovative video portal and tools to power a global teacher community for sharing best quality practices to educators worldwide that both improve teaching and student learning.
The OECD will work with Kaltura to connect educators across the globe so they may share teaching expertise through classroom video clips from Colombia, Japan, Mexico, and more – and engage in peer discussion. The GTI initiative will provide teachers from around the globe the opportunity to access meaningful, collaborative video experiences about teaching solutions for common classroom challenges, such as classroom management, social-emotional support, discourse, quality of subject matter, student cognitive engagement, and assessment of student understanding in both an in-person and virtual context
“COVID-19 has revealed many challenges and inequalities for teaching communities around the globe,” said Anna Pons, Project Leader of the OECD. “Our new teaching initiative will ensure that teachers can learn from and support each other at a global scale to navigate not only in-person pedagogical practices, but also the mass shift to virtual schooling. We selected Kaltura’s well-tested and widely used educational technology to power the GTI initiative, so that we can help teachers worldwide work together to improve teaching and learning, allowing them to tap into the global community like never before.” […]
