Explain your project in details:
The main objectives are: 1. Help teachers identify the types of students in the classroom 2. Identify their unique learning styles and preferences 3. Adopt Critical Thinking Skills teaching techniques to enhance their learning skills It involves organising training seminars for teachers to upgrade their teaching skills by first understanding the variations in the learning abilities of students in the classroom. To be able to identify their individual learning styles and preferences and then adopt a critical thinking skills teaching methodology which delivers the topic from a collective approach in meeting the learning needs of all the students from a holistic teaching approach within the stipulated period of teaching.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
In the past two years we have trained over 500 private school teachers from creche to the Junior high school level using this approach and it has assisted teachers to properly understand the different learning needs of students. This has change the rote instructional approach of teachers thereby enhancing better student to teacher relationship. It has also lead to improved academic performances of students over time.
Sustainability and future plans
I organise these seminars for teachers at fee and award certificates also at a fee. This fees are forms to generating funds to scale up the training of more teachers in the schools. The future plan for this project is to liaise with the ministry of education and international organisational like US AID in order to scale up the training to include both trained teachers in the government schools and that of untrained teachers largely in the private schools. Also, there is the plan to set a centralised training center where teachers are trained periodically in order to overhaul the current rote teaching and learning approaches in our school systems to a critical thinking skills teaching methodology which seeks to build the thinking, confidence and solution-oriented minds of our students.
