Education Commission Save our Future (SOF) Action Area 2: Innovative Pedagogies

IDP supports the Education Commission’s Innovative Pedagogies project, which is funded by the LEGO Foundation. The project aims to create greater awareness, political will, and action towards adopting adaptive, interactive, engaging, and playful pedagogies in three countries, as well as at the global level. The project works to actualize the SOF White Paper, which was produced to highlight actions that need to be taken for those children who are most left behind. Working with country governments, local partners and key stakeholders, the project is working with three countries to bring together key stakeholders to consider what the evidence means for their country, capture what is already taking place, and identify bright spots to explore further. The local partner in each country will undertake rapid research and analysis with teachers, school leaders and other key stakeholders on the extent to which these pedagogies and actions are taking place within the countries and the barriers to implementation. A second policy dialogue will be held to share and discuss the brief with policymakers and other key stakeholders, in order to co-create an action plan to address the gaps. Findings will inform a targeted advocacy campaign, harnessing some of the techniques used in the SOF campaign.  Throughout this process, IDP will serve as the technical expert on inclusive pedagogies by developing an inclusive pedagogical framework and advising on the work of the project.

Project Highlights

  • Developing an analytical framework on how to assess the extent to which inclusive, engaging, and adaptive pedagogy is taking place and how to measure it. 

  • Co-design of the policy dialogues for each case study country to bring together key stakeholders to consider what the evidence means for their country, capture what is already taking place, and identify bright spots to explore further.
