The forum of young teachers of Almaty region was held in Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Taldykorgan. A large-scale event that brought together more than 250 teachers from the region was held in the framework of the Year of Youth. The teachers of the Intellectual School shared the most effective teaching methods with their colleagues.
- The forum is a personal initiative of our young teachers. In order to increase the motivation of the young teacher, we intend to create an electronic community, a platform for the exchange of experience. We will use popular social networks such as Facebook, Telegram. Thus, the exchange of knowledge between teachers will increase the effectiveness of each of them. Teaching will become more productive, and, consequently, more successful, Viktor Sossin, the Vice-pricipal on Academic Affair at the Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Taldykorgan, noted in an interview.
Young teachers visited pedagogical workshops, art sessions for the development of professional skills, various team buildings and personal and creative development trainings where the speakers of the Intellectual School presented their approaches to teaching in a completely new way.
Gulzhazira Ordenbek, a teacher of Kazakh language and literature of the secondary school No. 2 in Tekeli shared her comments, ‘We learnt more about the use of interactive methods, such as “Mosaic”, “Raft”, “Silent Cinema” and “Venn Diagram”. We also solved problems on the development of creative thinking, emotional intelligence, how to become a teacher-blogger, stay in good shape and so one. Additionally, there were a lot of musical, dance minutes and creative activities. Undoubtedly, I received a great help on teaching methods’.
The special guest of the Young Teachers' Forum was Aidana Shilikbekova, the Vice-chaiperson of Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools AEO, Almas Ordabayev, the head of the school and the editor of the popular science publication OYLA, Galymzhan Abdraimov, the akim of Taldykorgan.
Almas Ordabayev confessed that the teacher has ceased to be the only source of information. Factual knowledge has lost its relevance. Nowadays it is much more important to be able to work with information, that is, to be able to apply it in life. Therefore, the role of the teacher is changing today.
The final step of the Forum was a gala concert organized by the students of Nazarbayev Intellectual school.
