Abstract

This paper demonstrates an innovative school based teacher development (SBTD) model, designed to reach large scale (80,000 teachers and 10 million students by 2017) and impact positively on teachers’ communicative language teaching (CLT) practices, increasing both the English proficiency of teachers and students. The model is being currently used with 4000 teachers after an initial pilot period with 690 teachers (supported by 59 Teacher Facilitators) and 132,700 students (2008–2011). We illustrate, using the findings from studies conducted for the pilot phase intervention, the successful impact on teachers and students after participating in the project for just one year. We argue that such a model, using low-cost mobile technologies, is suited to provide 12 million students with increased EL proficiency.
