@pammoran: Teach Less Learn More - from Singapore's Ed Ministry #blog4NWP well worth a read #edchat
• TLLM aims to touch the hearts and engage the minds of our learners, to prepare them for life. It reaches into the core of education - why we teach, what we teach and how we teach. • It is about shifting the focus from “quantity” to “quality” in education. “More quality” in terms of classroom interaction, opportunities for expression, the learning of life-long skills and the building of character through innovative and effective teaching approaches and strategies. “Less quantity” in terms of rote-learning, repetitive tests, and following prescribed answers and set formulae. • Teachers, school leaders and MOE all have important roles to play to make Teach Less, Learn More happen.
