Lsingapore"S Methods Inspire Maharashtra Education Board

News Information

Arithmetic, in most state board schools, is taught by the paper-and-pen method. However, the scene may change as the board is contemplating a move to adopt some of Singapore's teaching and learning methods.
Primary school children in the island nation solve mathematical problems in a concrete, pictorial and abstract process. First, they get hands-on training with chips and dice, then they move to a pictorial representation of mathematical concepts and in the third step to numbers and symbols for solving problems.Minister of state for education Fauzia Khan and other officials of the state education department were in Singapore recently to study the country's education system.
Khan told TOI, "Their education system lays emphasis on building and strengthening the fundamentals of mathematics and language at the primary level. They make sure that students learn through experience. The stress is on creativity and physical education."
So impressed was the team that the state education department issued a government resolution on March 5, stating that 20 officials will be sent to Singapore in two batches to see how primary education is imparted there.Khan said 40-minute physical education sessions are planned minute-by-minute. "Here, physical education often means taking students to the playground. I was impressed with the teacher recruitment process too. They recruit candidates and train them to teach. We have teachers with degrees who are recruited to teach in schools," she added.
She said adopting some techniques may not even need policy decisions. "The structure of a physical education class can be replicated and may not need any permission from the government. However, decisions like teachers' training and creativity classes, will need government intervention," Khan said
