IMPT- CRITICAL QUESTIONS
1) What is it that we want the student to learn?
2) How do we know that they have learnt it?
3) What do we do if they have NOT learnt it?
4) What do we do if they HAVE learnt it?
5) What are the differentiated instructions for the pupils?
To conclude the whole AKM module :
I really enjoyed working on the questions and activities that Dr Yeap had designed, and I discovered new learning experiences and this helps me see and to make sense of what and why we are learning Mathematics.
The PERI Report states that “Learning should be contextualised and situated in real world experiences so that students appreciate the purpose of what they are learning, and see the connections between what they learn in school and what they experience in the world.”
This is what experiential learning is about.
