STIR brought together hundreds of teachers and government employees spreading 10 states to kick start the unique movement. The organization recently released a guide to introduce 55 micro innovations selected through a rigorous process by teachers and experts.

The organization works closely with teachers and principals to develop the ‘three Is’ of being a teacher changemaker – innovating in the classroom, implementing effective teacher practices and influencing peers to join the process.

Sharath, Founder and CEO, STIR, said, “STIR Education is committed to empower teachers in becoming changemakers by encouraging them to break barriers and explore creative and innovative techniques in enhancing the quality of education and making it available to every student. This summit is a first step of building a movement and unlocking the potential of teachers.”

The STIR model encourages the teachers to re-imagine their role in leading change in their classrooms, schools and wider education system. The model involves searching for teachers within the system with a spark of commitment and innovation; bringing them together through local teacher changemaker networks; and acting as a catalyst to connect these teacher networks to a range of wider improvement opportunities provided by STIR.

The summit provided an excellent platform to STIR teacher changemakers from 10 states to exhibit their micro-innovations in teaching.
