ENRICHING LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Enriching Learning Experience

A fulfilling Learning Journey to Develop Knowledge, Skills and Disposition In every MWTI pupil.

 

Enriching Learning

MWTI believes in using a repertoire of pedagogy that puts each pupil at the centre of learning. The various IP (Instructional Programmes) departments have applied a lens of learner-centeredness to their curriculum content by adopting various pedagogical strategies such as stage-it  in English, games approach in Math, inquiry-based learning in Science and cooperative learning in Mother Tongue (MT) lessons to focus on pupil engagement and learning.

 

The pedagogy is further enhanced by leveraging Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to conduct lessons and encourage participation. The nature and delivery of ICT lessons not only encourage pupils to be independent learners but also allow learning to extend into cyberspace where groups of pupils collaborate by sharing information and providing feedback.

 

Promoting Inquiry-Based Learning

The school encourages its pupils to make sense of the world by inquiry. Teachers will make a deliberate effort to encourage their pupils to seek information by questioning. The pupils are taught to pose questions and pursue them through open-ended investigations. The involvement in the learning process aids their understanding of concepts and ideas better. The inquiry-based learning is specially adopted by the Science department as its core pedagogy. Our frequent visits to Science Centre have moulded our pupils to be more receptive and responsible in their learning environment. They appreciate the nature and apply the knowledge in their everyday life.

 

Creating a Conducive Environment

The school believes that the physical, social, affective and academic   environment needs to be conducive for pupils’ learning. It seeks to create a learning environment for learners to feel respected and accepted and where learning is the main focus. The school also pays attention to its infrastructure to support the delivery of holistic education. School facilities and spaces have been redesigned which include the indoor sports hall for various customised PE lessons. The school leverages on pupils’ work and other visual resources to form attractive displays in the various parts of the school. These have enhances the physical environment to be welcoming and conducive for learning.
