Who is teaching with TBL in K-12 and what are they teaching
Chris Chee from Spectra Secondary school uses TBL to teach basic mathematics. His students are 12 to 14 years old and considered in the bottom 10% of students academically in Singapore’s education system. We are aware of several primary school educators using TBL to teach geography to 8 to 10-year-old students. We are also aware of high school educators at an international school in Korea and Raffles Girls School in Singapore using TBL to teach Chemistry.
Three of the five polytechnics in Singapore are using or piloting TBL (Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Nanyang Polytechnic and Singapore Polytechnic). These students are 16 to 19 years old. In Singapore’s education system, many of these students are expected to directly enter the workforce rather than continue on to university. The polytechnics are using TBL in a wide range of fields including accounting, health sciences and a range of technical fields.
