The project in Mexico seeks to help develop the Spanish language skills and pedagogical practice of multi-grade primary school teachers working in areas where indigenous languages are dominant. 

Specifically, the project aims to:

  • Create educational resources that are easily and effectively disseminated via mobile phones.  The resources emphasize the social practice of language are aligned with formal curricula.
  • Strengthen the use and knowledge of Spanish as a second language for teachers working with indigenous and minority-language students.  
  • Promote dialogue between experts and participating teachers to improve Spanish language pedagogy.
  • Encourage exchanges between teachers and build communities of practice. 
  • Develop a new and cost effective model for teacher development that can be replicated in other areas of Mexico.
