See your class and its work presented to Ban Ki-moon

Take part in TES’ A Teaching Moment in Time (Atmit) project next month and your school’s contribution could be presented to UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon.

The event will use the power of social media and live-blogging to paint a picture of the world’s schools at one moment – 11am local time.

It will reveal the similarities and differences between the lives of teachers and students in countries around the globe, from the poorest to the richest.

The last Atmit took place in September 2013 and saw thousands of teachers in more than a hundred countries telling TES exactly what they were doing with their students at that very moment. The TES live-blogged the event for 24 hours, producing an inspirational portrait of schooling on all four corners of the world. We also edited the highlights into a video, which can be watched here.

This year we have teamed up with Education International’s Unite for Quality Education campaign, which has seen teacher unions and educationalists campaigning for universal access to quality teachers, modern resources and safe and secure schools for all children.

The culmination of this campaign will be a meeting in October with Ban Ki-moon, in which a collection of materials will be presented to him. The video of Atmit 2014 will be included. 

Register for Atmit 2014.
