Had our second group meeting.
Date: Tue 14th Sep at 7.00 pm.
Venue: Macdonalds at Sengkang Sports Complex.
Time: 7.00 pm - 9.30pm.
We had our first meeting on 9th Sep at NIE to discuss what the assignment required of us and how we were going to divide the work. We came prepared with our notes and wth some trepidation as to whether what we had was sufficient, concise and informative enough.
We went through the 'Jigsaw' approach, with the 'expert' sharing information on initiatives during the periods assigned. We added missing/aditional information and when each had had our turn, we were able to see the development of the intiatives through the years and their impact on Math teaching and learnng in the Primary schools. It was indeed a very fruitful session. I enjoyed the interaction and learning with my group mates. We decided on 5 main initiatives and their impact on taching and learning. Each has to work on one of them and share at the next session (at the same venue-next Tue) before collating the information for presentation.
