Singapore-based teacher empowerment platform Akadasia has announced a content development partnership with India’s leading teacher training experts OrangeSlates.
As part of the partnership, OrangeSlates will offer its teacher upskilling and reskilling content to teachers from all over Asia and will make use of Akadasia’s blockchain-based digital credentialing technology to certify and issue tamper-proof and verifiable digital credentials to teachers who complete their courses through the Akadasia platform.
Announcing the partnership from the show floor at the EduTech Asia 2022 Conference in Singapore, Neelesh Bhatia, Founder & CEO of Akadasia, said,
Post Covid, it has become evident that educators need to upskill and reskill themselves to stay relevant to their digital native learners. And this needs to be done on a war-footing and at scale. As such, we at Akadasia are really excited to partner with OrangeSlates as together we can create a positive impact in how educators learn and then apply this learning through the courses they author for their students. This partnership further strengthens Akadasia’s mission and commitment to empower educators everywhere.
Pradeep Pillai, CEO of Orange Slates, said,
We’re extremely positive about this partnership with Akadasia. This would help build the largest community of future-ready educators. The whole world talks about helping teachers – this partnership will actually do it.
Vrushali Sheth, Head of product at Orange Slates, added,
We’re excited to leverage Akadasia’s advanced platform to offer courses based on our proprietary 4C Model to educators globally. From pre-service preparation to in-service CPD, we see this partnership impacting lives of millions of educators.
