TESS-India is pleased to inform you that we have published our audio-visual resources in Assamese, Bengali, Kannada and Odia. These resources, apart from the existing English and Hindi resources, have been uploaded on our YouTube channel.

These videos are freely available as Open Educational Resources (OER) and published under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. They are intended to complement the TESS-India text-based OER for teachers and school leaders. However, they may also be viewed independently of these materials.

The TESS-India videos have been filmed in primary and secondary schools in India. They show teachers trying out more learner-centred, participatory approaches with their students. The videos are not intended to demonstrate model practice. Their aim is to inspire you to experiment with similar approaches and techniques in your own classroom.

The videos are organised according to the themes of ten Key Resources that underpin the pedagogic practices of TESS-India:

  • Planning lessons
  • Involving all
  • Talk for learning
  • Using pair work
  • Using questioning to promote thinking
  • Monitoring and giving feedback
  • Using group work
  • Assessing progress and performance
  • Using local resources
  • Storytelling, songs, role play and drama
