Old guidelines on teachers’ ethics to get a revamp

Recommended Posts

True, but at least:

“We need to shift from rote-learning and focus on being practical,” Tisana said, adding that this will help initiate big changes in Thailand’s educational sector."

 

In my recollection first time ever the term 'rote-learning' has been mentioned and even bigger surprise an actual comment that we need to move away from rote learning.

 

Lets' wait and see.

 

It's the only way Thai teachers can teach and assess. So until that changes nothing changes.

 

There is no formative method to gauge individual learning from what I can see.

Promote asking questions-no mention of corruption?-let them know there is a world outside of Thailand-business, science and research journals are English based-less than one percent of the world speaks Thai, and the language of ASEAN is English, this is important to higher learning, research and integration

Plenty of other ways other than hitting them to punish a child so that they learn of consequences.

Like what? I’d love to hear of plenty of other ways.

Too many sissy parents these days who refuse to discipline their children unfortunately. 

Punish your child. Then when they get older and pick up a brick to throw through a window, they'll think "Ow! My ass hurts! Maybe I SHOULDN'T throw this brick."

No but family members are school teachers who hit kids in their charge and they complain all the time that they still misbehave.

i'm thinking this is the time to quit while you are still sane......there are some adults who do have this belief that belting a child is good for them....there is no way to change their minds about this (short of hitting them)......just joking....but you are completely right about alternatives to alter misbehaviour......the hardest part is that the role model (i.e. the parents are undermining strategies.

Good point.

 

MAny countries have struggled with this item for years and some have develop credible assessment appraoches.

 

Singapore is in the process of adjusting the assessment to include / feature;

 

'How well are students prepared for life'.

 

I like this concept and hope to see more details.

many schools these days are encouraging critical thinking as well as students opinions being part of the learning.....some very advanced teachers encourage students planning the assessment at the start of the unit......plus the guideline criteria on the assessment......this can be started in earlier grades than you would think.....
