6 Summary

This unit has taken you through the process described in Figure 2. You are now familiar with the TESS-India OERs for elementary school teachers, and understand how they are structured and what components you might adapt and use in your setting. The OERs are free-standing and can be studied as a whole, but by now you will realise that they can be used flexibly to meet specific needs.

You may well have a strong vision for the sort of teaching and learning that you want to happen in your school. Your enthusiasm will be carried over to your staff if you can model the behaviours you are seeking and offer them support in experimenting with new ways of working.

The TESS-India OERs can support you in transforming teaching and learning in your school by giving you tools to develop and support your teachers in practical ways.
