MESH – The Mapping Educational Specialist knowHow System
MESH – the Mapping Educational Specialist knowHow system – provides a sustainable system using resources already in the education system to generate, quality assure and update evidence-based summaries written for educators.
MESH is an initiative of the Education Futures Collaboration (EFC) charity initially set up by educators from 5 countries and international professional associations. The goal is to give teachers anywhere, open access to summaries of research (MESHGuides) translated to apply to classroom practice.
To mobilise knowledge in different countries a participatory methodology is being used supported by the MESHConnect online groups on the Knowledge Hub online collaboration platform linking academics and practitioners across countries working on issues of mutual concern eg neuroscience and education, early years etc.
MESH is a prototype for a low cost, international, knowledge management system for teachers.
