Thinking School Ethiopia is collaborating with the educational bureau of the SNNPRS (The Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Regions). Thinking Schools Ethiopia facilitated a three day training with the Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR) Education Bureau Expert Team in Yirgalem (south of Awassa).  The recent training on The Growing Thinking School Inside Out approach three day training (28 Feb, 1-2 March) was conducted for the Instructional and Administrative Leadership team of the education bureau. The whole school system approach it employs explains why the leadership team initially took the training. Thetraining creates a transparent condition in which the instructional leadership team actually assumes the roles students would play. Educators employ the powerful tools and strategies of the

Thinking School Approach in actual class room conditions enabling the leaders to materially witness how students would learn in a teaching for, of, and about thinking. An environment that educators will create for training in implementing the Thinking School model of effecting quality education in the region. The training was, from the facilitators point of view, a complete success. Reflections from the Awassa based Expert Team who are leading the whole school change initiative will be posted in upcoming days (video and text) here on the TSE website / blog. Additional examples and models of the training will also be posted here.  The visual mapping below represents the experts thinking, visioning and planning for the next steps of training principals, leadership teams, then whole school training throughout the whole SNNPR region.
