  1. Project based learning
    In Project-based learning,learning is contextual, creative, and shared. Students collaborate on meaningful projects that require critical thinking, creativity, and communication in order for them to answer challenging questions or solve complex problems. By making learning relevant to them in this way, students see a purpose for mastering state-required skills and content concepts. Students aren’t just assessed on their understanding of academic content, but on their ability to successfully apply that content when solving authentic problems. Through this process, project based learning gives students the opportunity to develop the real life skills required for success in today’s world. Microsoft helps in using
    Collaborative Tools in the Classroom.
    Tools for Engaging All Learners in the Classroom
    Effective Communication Tools for Teachers
    Classroom Organization Tools for Teachers.
    I invite all educators to share their thoughts,views and experiences about different Microsoft tools for different phases of Project Based Learning.

    Yes Pratima, You have rightly said. I strongly believe in Project based learning. It allows students to think,analyze, and lead towards innovative solutions for the problems faced. It stirs the curiosity and makes the students to possess self-empowerment. I have implemented the strategy of PBL and have demonstrated significant, positive desired learning outcome too.

  3. Multimedia classroom
    Multimedia classroom make teaching and learning more effective and enjoyable for both students and teachers using ICT Multimedia Classrooms in secondary schools
    Why it was necessary

    Bangladesh is endowed with a large pool of intelligent young citizens who, with proper education, can be turned into a valuable human resource befitting the needs of the 21st century.
    Secondary schools, using one laptop with internet connection and a multimedia projector per classroom. These classrooms have also succeeded in enhancing quality of classroom learning, drawing deeper attention from students and making teachers more effective in communicating difficult ideas.
    Multimedia classrooms, digital contents and teacher training together will improve overall quality of learning in primary and secondary education by promoting effective and participatory learning and eliminating unnecessary memorizing tendencies.

    With phenomena globalisation it is unquestionable that media classrooms play an important role in teaching and learning process in the sense that we equip learners with effective ICT tools to compete with their counterparts in the globe, thus face the 21st century challenges.
    Although for schools in some developing countries, in case of mine (Mozambique), teachers and learners do not have access to ICT facilities, working in bare classrooms with large classes. But as educators, it is our responsibility to create conditions for our learners to try ICT at any cost so that they meet the 21st needs.
    I use a laptop with no internet access for classes with over 60 learners to minimize the problem.
