Thinking Schools Ethiopia Lead Country Trainer
Professional Development conducted in Wukro, Tigray, Ethiopia on the 12-15 October 2015

The training in Aksum was also successfully carried out with the ToT Trainers playing leading roles. About 250 participants took part in the training . The ToT Trainers led community building exercises, modeled each of the activities to their groups, and enabled effective communication between TSI and TSE trainers and all the teachers. Reflective discussions P1130809on the meaning of Personal Frames of Reference, Context Circles, and exercising the use of Thinking Maps were important elements of the training. Collaborative Learning strategies were being used with questioning techniques along with exercising the use of thinking maps for general contents and academic relevant themes. Planning steps of whole school implementation of thinking maps and teachers’ comments on Student guides (guides meant for exercising use of Thinking Maps for students in all the schools )took place at the ends of the training in Aksum.

P1130509A two days whole staff training was undertaken for over 320 teacher educators under the leadership role of the Trainer of Trainers (ToT). The ToT trainers played key role in effectively transferring via modeling the essential components of the training to ALL educators from Wukro. After the two days training teachers from 2 primary and 1 secondary schools from each Wereda came up with their plan (in a Flow Map) of whole school implementation of Thinking Maps in their respective schools. Worth mentioning it is, here,  that the training hall chosen at Wukro site contributed a lot to the success of the overall training. The training was in the auditorium within a Catholic School located in Wukro. It was superb in space, excellent in sound, and sufficient quality chairs and tables for the large group.

P1120716Thinking Design:
Models and Methods for Patient Centered & Student Centered Practices
For Healthcare Professionals, Educators & Students
10 October 2015 • Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Introductory Training for St Paul’s Hospital &  St. Pauls Millennium Medical College
Attendees included provost, vice provost and all key heads of departments
The St. Paul’s Medical College and Hospital professional development was a full day participant centered P1120808training with a focus on implementing Thinking Design throughout the hospital and medical college with a goal of a patient centered approach (hospital) and student centered learning (medical college).

Introduction and Background
Thinking Design is a systems approach that uses practical research based methods to assure a healthy organization that supports and grows effective communication with and between leadership and the whole organization. It uses tools that smartly communicate ideas within and outside organization to create collaborations. It honors and understands the abilities and gifts of all members of an organization.P1120821

Thinking Design training uses the Thinking Design research based methods that include:

  • Visual Tools (Thinking Maps) – the use of visual tools to map out ideas;
  • Questioning for Inquiry – high quality use of questions and shared inquiry;
  • Collaborative Networking – collaborative thinking; collegial coaching & community building methods;
  • Developing Dispositions – characteristics, dispositions, habits of mind;
  • P1120785Designing a Thinking Environment — how the physical space is organized & resources are used.

Thinking Design methods are lifelong skills used for problem solving individually and collaboratively in the whole organization including leaders, professional and staff members.

To live fulfilling lives, people will need to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions required to shape the lives they can imagine for themselves and their families. The thinking tools are instrumental in knowing oneself, connecting with others, and exploring pathways of successful collaborations supporting a healthy and success organization.

coverthinkingdesignThinking Designs Guide
The Thinking Design training is participant-centered learning with hands-on application using content that is relevant to the participants. The key pathway of the training is “Thinking Maps” which is a cognitive visual mapping language providing a concrete foundation to organize one’s thinking, understand each other’s thinking and each other’s perspectives (frame of reference). This maximizes an organization’s capacity to think, understand, and perform effectively to succeed individually as well as collaboratively.

Training Methodology: Thinking Maps® (Visual Tools)
Thinking Maps are consistent visual patterns linked directly to eight specific thought processes. By visualizing our thinking, we create concrete images of abstract thoughts. These patterns help the whole organization reach higher levels of critical and creative thinking individually and collaboratively. Thinking Maps establish a consistent language for thinking and problem solving.

    model laboratory schools (one woman teacher and one man teacher to be consistent with the focus of whole school change including girl/woman empowerment for a total of 72 Trainer of Trainers) will receive 4 days of intensive training to build on their initial 2 days of training in April. Then they will collaborate with the TSI and TSE trainers to train ALL the teachers from all 36 model laboratory schools in three trainings which are two days each in Wukro, Aksum and Shire.

  • Stage 3, Stage 4, Sustaining
    Future stages include:
    —regular site visits from TSE lead trainers to support the school site Trainer of Trainers;
    —use of video to create a library of ‘models of excellence’ to share locally and regionally;
    —collaboration with Mekelle and Aksum Universities for accreditation and action research (see www.thinkingfoundation.org);
    —scaling the model to all schools in each Woreda and throughout the region

Quality change in education benefits from:

  • a quality education model that focuses on foundational pedagogical processes
  • understanding the brain seeks patterns and the importance of collaborating with models of excellence
  • focusing on building the ‘foundations’ first
  • knowing and understanding change is a movement. A movement of change fast enough for the whole to see and implement.
  • a movement is the whole village collaborating, together in the best interests of the children, of family, the health care of the whole community.

  • Reflective Questioning
    high quality questioning, listening and discussion skills
  • Collaborative Learning
    collaborative learning for students; collegial coaching for teachers; community building for the whole school
  • Thinking Environments
    how are space (structure and the educators presence) and materials (local and recycled) used with intentionality
  • Dispositions
    a mind that is reflective about internal dispositions and actions, while remaining open to other ways in which people are thinking and acting

img_3661A training for Thinking Design facilitated by Robert Price in collaboration with Seble Hailu, and coordinated by Aha Psychological Services was held at the Bole Ambassador Hotel on the 25 April 2015. Participants were from the mental health field, NGOs, education, and universities.

Thinking Design is a systems approach that uses practical research based methods to assure a healthy organization that supports and grows effective communication with and between leadership and the whole organization.  It uses tools that smartly communicate ideas within and outside organization to create collaborations.  It honors and understands the abilities and gifts of all members of an organization.

Thinking Design training uses the Thinking Design research based methods that include:

  • Visual Tools (Thinking Maps) – the use of visual tools to map out ideas;
  • Questioning for Inquiry – high quality questioning and shared inquiry;
  • Collaborative Networking – collaborative thinking; collegial coaching & community building methods;
  • Developing Dispositions – characteristics, dispositions, habits of mind;
  • Designing a Thinking Environment — how the physical space is organized & resources are used.

Thinking Design methods are lifelong skills used for problem solving individually and collaboratively in the whole organization including leaders, professional and staff members.

To live fulfilling lives, people will need to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions required to shape the lives they can imagine for themselves and their families. The thinking tools are instrumental in knowing oneself, connecting with others, and exploring pathways of successful collaborations supporting a healthy and success organization.

The training has multiple sequential stages: Introduction for learning, practice for mastery and mastery.

Project Sensitization Workshop for Growing Thinking Schools Ethiopia from the Inside Out 

A Love in Action –  Initiative Africa (IA) – Eminence Social Entrepreneurs (ESE) Collaboration for Growing Thinking Schools Ethiopia in SNNPRS.
by Dagim Melese — C0-Lead Thinking Schools Ethiopia trainer 

Love in Action Ethiopia (LIAE) conducted a day long project sensitization workshop on Saturday, April 3, 2015, in SNNPR (Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region).  The project is entitled Empowering Women Building Communities through Growing Thinking Schools from the Inside Out in 2 (two) Secondary and College Preparatory schools: Wachamo and Heto Secondary and College Preparatory Schools.  The purpose of the workshop is to consult with key stakeholders on issues of effective implementation of the project program so as to see the adaptability, relevance, use value and instrumentality of the program for the school improvement needs of the education system in the region. The stakeholders included City Education Bureau leadership and experts, Development Activities Coordination Bureau, Finance and Economic development Directorate, School Directors, Model Teachers , Experts from Women Affairs Bureau,  PTA(Parent- Teachers Association), Project Managers and Project Director of Love in Action Ethiopia.

Brief explanation on the project’s  rationale and goal, and discussion on the underlying concepts of the TSE model and among the participants about the problems of high school girls,  issues associated with the project( project’s life -span, project’s budget,  project’s target groups, areas and levels of intervention in the education system ( How is the problem going to be addresses ? Via what strategy?  At what level of education is the intervention going to take place? ) took place. Key questions from the participants were asked as regards the issues and they were responded to by the project director.

The following were some of the comments, questions and experiences shared.

  1. Bearing in mind that it is not easy to bring about desirable change in attitudes, we should be ready to work collaboratively, interdependently, orchestrating expertise and facilitating united efforts.
  2. In the light of our realization and contention about the relevance and usefulness of the project we should have started the intervention from foundational grades (PrK , First Cycle Primary Schools )
  3. We should strategize  ways to make the project all – inclusive : involve parents, people in leadership, students , teachers , PTA , etc ( all stakeholders).
  4. The project is key in terms adding supplementary value.
  5. Female students should be assessed for differentiated interventions.There has to be developed a mechanism of documenting female students profiles.
  6. Schools organizational capacity needs to be supported (there has to be a school psychologist for Guidance and Counseling service in the schools for example ).
  7. Working on facilitating teachers’ expertise is key and foresighted for benefiting the community in a sustainable manner
  8. Why is the project short lasting? Why limited budget while the program you have is of high priority
  9. The capacity building aspect of the program should address all teachers  and instructional leaders
  10. How is the project going to address the socio-economic problems of girls ? Livelihood needs of the female students ?

In accord with the project implementation plan both Wachamo and Heto Schools are planned to receive educational professional training using the Thinking Schools Approach in three(3) different phases –  Instructional leadership team training ,  whole staff training at school site , and ongoing scaffolding support at school sites

Sensitization Workshop for Growing Thinking Schools from the Inside Out Project

A TDA (Tigray Development Association) – Eminence Social Entrepreneurs – Initiative Africa Collaboration for Growing Thinking Schools in the Tigray Region.
by Dagim Melese – Thinking Schools Ethiopia Lead Trainer for Eminence Social Entrepreneurs

Tigray Development Association (TDA) conducted a project sensitization workshop on Saturday, 26 March 2015, in Tigray Regional Administration.  The project is entitled Growing Thinking Schools from the Inside Out in 36 schools representing each Tigray region’s zonal administrations.  The purpose of the workshop is to consult with key stakeholders on issues of effective implementation of the project program so as to see the adaptability, relevance, and instrumentality of the program for the school improvement needs of the education system in the region. The stakeholders included University Lecturers, Dean of Pedagogical sciences, Wereda Supervisors, Project Director, Education quality assurance specialists, Leadership of TDA and Tigray region education bureau.  Brief explanation on alignment of the Thinking School model with school improvement program GEQIP of MOE (Ministry of Education), the project’s goal, and discussion on the underlying concepts of the TSE model preceded a prominent event of the day long workshop: discussions among the participants about criteria for selection of the schools and ways of assessing the fruits of the intervention program.

Various pragmatic issues were raised and deliberated upon among the participants during the discussion.  There were also thoughts surfaced from different frames of references from the different stakeholders.  The decision on the choice of the schools to be included in the pilot project was sought to be made from the combination of reasoning derived from different and contending vantage points. The following were some of the perspectives entertained in discussion;

  1. Accessible schools – the schools should be accessible: those to and from which are laid down adequate infrastructures hence are easy to work with, follow up, reinforce, and to work on feedbacks.
  2. Schools Previous performance –   the camps included those that preferred a combination of best performing schools and weakly running schools which is thought to shed light to changes due to intervention in comparison. The other camp contends that there are already other similar intervention programs working in same zonal administration and there are also schools that had not benefited from previous intervention programs. Therefore, we should benefit the poorly functioning schools without adequately met infrastructures.
  3. Cycles/Levels of Education – This refers to the question; which level of education is the intervention appropriate? Is it in the first cycle primary education? or Junior secondary cycle ? or Secondary and College preparatory cycle ?

These were the issues the participants consulted with each other and deliberated upon. The discussions were intensely interactive, reflective, and critical from different perspectives.  Group facilitators were observed to be satisfying to their group members. The discussion finally wrapped up with integrative, inclusive and accommodative statements as regards the issues of the discussion.

Key questions that were developed by the participants in the workshop include:

  • What is expected from the project?
  • How can lessons learned be expanded?
  • How should each partner execute their roles?
  • What kind of schools should participate in the project?
  • What is expected from the project intervention?

Stage 1 Leadership Teams
The next step is the upcoming trainings for Leadership Teams (8 principals and lead teachers from each school) of the 36 model schools. The trainings will be facilitated by Thinking Schools Ethiopia Lead Trainers Atsede Tsehayou and Dagim Melese, and Thinking Schools International Global Trainer Robert Price. The trainings will be held from the 12-21 April in 3 locations: Shire, Aksum and Wukro. The schedule of the trainings is:

Group Zone Number of Woreda  in the group Number of schools Number of participants

The Thinking Schools approach is a whole school transformational design that requires minimal materials for implementation and use. What is needed are school leaders, teachers, students and parents immersed in understanding the methods of Thinking Schools Ethiopia pathways for thinking. Thinking Schools Ethiopia focuses on key methods and pathways that aim at the professional development of teachers to improve the quality of their pedagogy and decision-making. This mindset and practice successfully brings a student centered quality thinking education with the whole school environment through the use of:

  • Thinking Maps
    use of visual tools to organize ones thinking (students, teachers, leaders) with visual tools that are a visual verbal collaborative process of seeing each other’s thinking
  • Reflective Questioning
    high quality questioning, listening and discussion skills
  • Collaborative Learning
    collaborative learning for students; collegial coaching for teachers; community building for the whole school
  • Dispositions
    a mind that is reflective about internal dispositions and actions, while remaining open to other ways in which people are thinking and acting

Thinking Schools Ethiopia is a whole school systems approach based on building capacity inside out with the aim of developing a foundation that is reflective, sustainable, collaborative and replicable. TSE is part of a greater global collaboration that supports multi-directional development. Multi-directional development is a belief system and model where all participants recognize their own capacity for aiding the others globally: ideas and innovation originate within and across ALL places globally. The Thinking Schools Ethiopia training uses research based thinking methods that are lifelong skills for use with problem solving in school, life and work.

Thinking Schools Ethiopia (TSE) will begin  model school collaborations with Tigray government schools in March. The initial training will be a sensitization workshop to ensure that the Thinking school frameworks and specific interventions are well understood by all partners and smoothly executed so as to bring the desired changes in attitudes, practices, and education systems and structures around the issues. The initiative is for whole school change with the Thinking Schools model. The initiative is funded with a focus on empowering girl students at primary and secondary levels (and women teachers) in the process. The project is funded through Initiative Africa. Previously the Tigray Education Bureau experts were trained (photo). The TSE project is being coordinated in the northern Tigray region by the Tigray Development Association and the Tigray Education Bureau. The Trainer of Trainer model will include training facilitators from the Education Bureau, Mekelle University and Aksum University.

Stage one will begin in April with schools leadership teams from the 36 model schools representing 12 Woredas. This will include both primary and secondary schools from each Woreda to provide a foundation to scale the project to all schools. The initial training is a 2 day Growing Thinking Schools Inside Out training. The training is about student centered thinking methods and is participant centered with the educators receiving hands-on training. The trainers include TSE trainers from Eminence Social Entrepreneurs and a global trainer from Thinking Schools International and the Thinking Foundation.

Stage two training will provide whole school training for each of the model schools. This will then be supported with ongoing site visits by TSE trained trainers.

Bole preparatory school is one of the highest ranking and largest staff sizes of schools in the 300+ government schools system of Addis Ababa Education Bureau. As part of the selected 10 pilot schools, it is also one of the pioneer preparatory schools in the city that took a Thinking Schools Ethiopia training by classifying its staff in two groups.

In accord with this understanding a one and half day training, for the first group, was conducted to more than 80 participants of which school teachers, department heads, director and two deputy directors of the school were part of the training.pioneer preparatory schools in the city that took a thinking schools Ethiopia training by classifying its staff in two groups.

Day one, community building exercises, and personal frame of reference has been introduced followed by a brief introduction to the Growing thinking schools inside out guide. The trainees were deeply engaged in discussions and entertain different views while they were working with the five dimensions to thinking (Cognitive process, Enquiry methods, Dispositions, Learning Modalities and creativity).

Day two of the training was an introduction to visual tools particularly the use of the 8 thinking maps. Participants   were exposed to see the use of the maps and were also extensively exercised and see the potential of these maps to implement in an actual classroom circumstance.

The overall reflection of the participants was great of our expectation. The school director was highly inspired and wants to conduct training for the second group as soon as possible.

This was a step in the process of implementing a whole school transformational process of creating models of Thinking Schools in the Addis Ababa Education System. It is remembered that the instructional leadership team of Bola high School took part in the first phase of the training conduted in June, 2014. The training was interactive, particpatory, and reflective. The goal of the training was to adequately introduce the educators with Visual Tools:Thinking Processes Maps , and facilitate the exercise of use of thinking maps as tools for conducting actual class room lessons by teachers in all departments /academic streams. Following are still pictures taken from the training.

Astede Tsehayou and Dagim Melese
Eminence Social Entrepreneurs / Thinking Schools Ethiopia Facilitators

Thinking School Ethiopia, part of Eminence Social Entrepreneurs, conducted a  two days training on Growing Thinking  School from the Inside Out model for the whole staff of Cheffe Primary School on December 6 and 7 , 2014. All educators, about 69 in number, from all departments (Language, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, and Arts) and self-contained teachers of the school took part in the training. The training constituted part of a second phase of a whole school transformational change process planned to be executed, through concerted efforts of Addis Ababa Education Bureau (AAEB) and Eminence Social Entrepreneurs, with the aim of creating 10 models of the “thinking school” approach in Yeka and Bole sub cities of the city of Addis Ababa.

The hands on, intensely collaborative training which was intermittently mixed with community building exercises (exercises that refresh, energize, stir the mind, and build a sense community and togetherness) was observed to be engaging, yielding and productive.  The participants were essentially the real actors in the training. Indeed, the thinking school model is particularly unique relative to other educational professional development models in that it demonstrates its defining motto that states “we walk the talk”.  The other important element of the training sessions was the call for participants’ observations to think about what is being done in each of the steps in progress which was meaningful for both the trainees and training facilitators as it elucidates upon the impact that is being felt.

The first day training (On Saturday, Dec.6, 2014) engaged the trainees to consolidate upon  the goal of Cheffie Primary School by helping them  reflectively see what  the school does so as to draw on its vision, goals, its achievements , and useful practices in a journey towards growing a thinking school. Moreover, the educators were also given opportunities to explore and converse on path ways of thinking that included topics on cognitive processes, learning modalities, dispositions, creativity, and enquiry methods.  Subsequent on the highly interactive discussions on the issues related to the aforementioned topics took place a brief introduction of Thinking Processes Maps which are visual-verbal tools graphically representing fundamental cognitive processes.

The following day (Sunday, Dec.7, 2014) was devoted for intensive exercises on the use of visual tools particularly on the use of Thinking Maps. Brief introduction on the eight (8) Thinking Maps, the universal cognitive processes they represent and their respective uses was followed by modeling of their actual use by TSE facilitators: Astede Tsehayou and Dagim Melese . Trainees were later given opportunities to apply the use of Thinking Maps in their subject area specializations being in collaborative learning groups. Representatives of each group were finally asked to present the works of their groups for the whole group so as to create learning and thinking environment in which observations, different ways of thinking (perspectives), conversations, discussions and synthesis of ideas occur.  Finally, participants were asked to reflect on the overall two days training.

Atsede Tsehayou – Thinking Schools Ethiopia Country Trainer 

As part of the steps with the Thinking Schools Ethiopia model, On-Site School Visits are made to each school.  A site visit to Cheffie Primary School, one of the ten Addis Ababa Education Bureau model Thinking Schools occurred on Thursday, December 17, 2014. Community building exercises were practiced by their physical education teacher and students as well during our visit.

The objective of the site visit was to introduce both the verbal and hand symbols of thinking maps to all students of Cheffee on one hand and to give explanation of the use of each maps on the other hand.

Grade 8 students observed and examined that thinking maps show clarity and simplicity in terms of communicating and understanding conceptual contents.

Grade 7 and 8 Students were using and sketching Thinking Maps in their exercise books and tried to connect the hands symbol of Thinking Maps with their meaning and importance .

        

Pre k students were also able to use their thinking abilities and participate with their teacher on the use of the maps.

        

The overall observation and reflection of my visit to the school was exciting and surprising because of all the fabulous movements and discussions happened within three days after the whole staff (70+ teachers and school leaders) training of Cheffie Primary School. The whole staff training was the two day initial Growing Thinking Schools Inside Out training on Thinking Schools including using visual tools (Thinking Maps).
