Malala attends teachers’ development conference

Islamabad:February 11:The second day of the 6th Annual Teachers’ Development Conference organised by the Roots National Institute of Teacher Training and Education, in collaboration with Change-in Education, was full of intellect and learning on Friday on the theme of ‘Connect’, says a press release issued here on Friday. The conference was attended by Malala Yousafzai, the child rights activist. The second day’s conference also brought together leading national and international speakers like Abbas Husain, Dr. Cusrow J. Dubash and Dr. Moiz Hussain, who enlightened the audience on critical thinking and injected new ideas into delegates, comprising RSS directors, head mistresses, branch heads, academic coordinators and faculty members. Malala Yousafzai left all the audience mesmerised and hypnotised with her words. The audience was awestruck and touched at the same time. The delegates were deeply touched at heart and had weepy eyes. The Roots School System executive director, the founder of RNITTE and CEO Change-in Education, touched by Malala’s speech, honoured her with education scholarship at the Roots School System. He said: “This courageous young girl met the restrictions of the defiance and firm resolution and proved her mettle by refusing to remain illiterate and helping her peers acquire it too.” The Teachers’ Development Conference 2012 is all about providing teachers an opportunity to learn the art of inculcating the 4Cs and ‘Connect’ in their teaching practices and also equip them with tools to prepare students to be leaders and agents of change in a climate in which the voice of students is sought and honoured. The aim of the conference is to put to acid test the breakthrough concept of ‘Connect’ and concluding its effectiveness in meeting challenges of the 21st century education, which calls for an approach that is agile and adaptable.The news.
