Test and Learn: A global revolution in teacher-led research

In this report, we explore the impact and potential power of Education Development Trust’s Test and Learn approach to identifying what works (and what doesn’t) in a variety of contexts.

We share the personal experiences of five of the Varkey Foundation’s Global Teacher Ambassadors in conducting experimental research in their classrooms. Along with 13 other teacher practitioners, these teachers were the first to carry out simultaneous experimental research studies, including randomised control trials, in their classrooms in twelve countries around the world.  We believe their stories and the emerging impact of their work marks the start of a global revolution in teacher-led research.
