Paradigm Shift COMPETENCE-BASED TEACHING/LEARNING APPROACH AND ASSESSMENT (CBTL)
Secondary Education Curriculum 1. Ordinary Level (Forms 1 -4) Students are required to study at least 7 subjects These include: • Civics, Geography, English, Biology • History, Kiswahili and Basic Mathematics 2. Advanced Level (Forms 5 - 6) a student specializes in a combination of three subjects (minimum ) The curriculum review cycle in Tanzania is 8 years. Review of O-level syllabi is over, that of A-level is in progress.
Secondary Education Curriculum Cont’d The existing review cycle is due to; 1. Serious social problems i. e. HIV/AIDS, Poor gender relations, environmental destruction 2. Serious scientific and technological changes in the world i. e. information and communication technology 3. Serious changes in the pedagogy and teaching/learning methods 4. Major shift in curriculum paradigm
What do you envisage to be the roles of students and those of teachers in the following teaching and learning approaches? 1. Teacher centered Vs Learner centered. 2. Content Vs Competence. 3. Knowledge inheritance Vs Knowledge construction. 4. Product Vs Process. 5. End of lesson evaluation Vs Classroom assessment. 6. Behaviorism theory of learning Vs Constructivism theory. 7. Memorization of facts Vs Higher order thinking skills.
Secondary Education Curriculum Cont’d Elements of the reviewed curriculum: 1. Competence development 2. Learner-Centered teaching 3. Co-operative learning 4. Assessment and Constructivism
Secondary Education Curriculum Cont’d Competences placed in the reviewed curriculum falls into 6 main groups: 1. Communication 2. Numeracy 3. Creative and critical thinking 4. Technology 5. Interpersonal competences 6. Self learning/Independent learning competence
Communication The focus is on improving learners understanding of the language demands in the required areas of learning. As such the learner shall be able to: • Use a range of language experiences for developing knowledge of a subject area • Convey and use information, instructions, ideas and feelings appropriately and effectively in a range of different social and cultural context • Use language for different audiences and purposes relevant to oneself and the subject area • Understand use the vocabulary, structures and forms of expressions which characterize each area of study.
Numeracy Basic mathematics skills and numeracy are fundamental for strengthening in all other fields of learning. Through this competence students shall have the ability to: 1. Organize information to support logic and reasoning 2. Recognize and use numerical patterns and relationships confidentially and competently 3. Recognize, understand, analyse and respond to information which is presented in numerical and mathematical forms such as graphs, tables and charts as applied within the subject area. 4. Use a range of instruments including electronics confidently and competently. 5. Provide basic estimates and calculations accurately and proficiently
Crreative and critical thinking This competence consists of two aspects: 1. Analytical-involving critical evaluation of data, identifying and defining problems, identifying probable causes and suggesting possible solutions. 2. Conceptual-involving ability to think in abstract terms to see a big picture and understand how the different parts fit together.
Technology Being competent in Technology students will appreciate the value and limitation of technology in society and participate in the shaping of public policies related to technological change
Technology Cont’d As such learners will develop abilities to: 1. Realize their roles and responsibilities related to technological changes 2. Develop modern view of technology and appreciate its value and limitation in the society 3. Make decisions related to technological developments for positive development of the individual and society. 4. Make appropriate use of technology in solving problems at the individual and community level. In particular the competence helps in finding and gathering information from multiple sources and apply that information creatively to specific tasks and problems
Interpersonal Competencies Elements of Learner-centeredness in teaching. • The learner learns by doing a variety of logical and planned activities • The lesson is built on what the learner already knows • Learner past experiences are respected • The learner seek knowledge by interacting with the teacher, the peer, the T/L materials and the subject content • Teaching and Assessment are done by covering all the 6 levels of the cognitive domain • The teacher is a facilitator of learning rather than a provider of knowledge
Self learning/Independent learning competence
Perceptions on CBTL - The main thrust of the shift of Paradigm was to put the competence –based curriculum at the heart of what is taught and learned along with constructivist methods of delivering subject content - CBTL aims at engaging students in a learning culture - Through CBTL Students will work harder than their teachers and will develop motivation, self-discipline and self-awareness to become successful learners in terms of outcomes. - CBTL promotes integrated learning and makes the classroom and the school in general an active learning community.
Teacher’s Role in CBTL Unlike in content-based T/L, the teacher has no role of- a direct knowledge transmitter Instead: 1. The teacher is to influence cognitive development and knowledge construction 2. To facilitate learning through use of guidance strategies and provision of tools such as problem solving and inquiry-based learning activities. 3. Generally, the teacher’s roles in CBTL approach are Motivator, Facilitator and class Manager.
