Science requires a teaching approach in which pupils should be actively engaged in carrying out inquiry and discovery and the use of evidence to formulate hypotheses and theories. Learning by doing is based on personal investigation that helps pupils to develop cognitive processes as well as the sense of curiosity and creativity. Inquiry based activities allow pupils acquire new communication skills, through discussions in the classroom and with the teacher. Instead of the usual memorization and concentration of scientific concepts and formulas, IBSE insists on the appropriation of knowledge through individual investigation and questioning attitude leading the pupils to learn by experimenting in partnership with the teacher. Hence the use of the hands and the brain lends itself as an appropriate teaching and learning strategy for science. Inquiry based science education (IBSE) has been recognized as an effective method of teaching science.
The workshop covered topics such as climate change and IBSE. This is the 17th training programme on Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) organised by ISTIC. The workshop was supported by Ministry of Education Malaysia. A total of 37 participants from 5 countries comprising Indonesia, Kiribati, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Malaysia attended the training workshop, 9 were males and 28 were females.
The International Conference on Climate Change Education was successfully held on 7 and 8 May 2018 at Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur. The conference was aimed to discuss on how to achieve SDG No. 4, Quality Education, SDG No. 13, Climate Action and SDG No. 17, Partnership for the Goals. The international conference focused on integrating climate change education in the curriculum, best practices and resources for learning within the context of the UN SDG 13 “Climate Action” which recognises the importance of education in its target 13.3 and indicator 13.3.1
Computer science is now considered as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subject in the broad sense and is being introduced in many countries as a stand-alone subject in the curriculum. The impetus to introduce this subject in the curriculum mainly arises from the technological development as we move into the digital age, in which our lives and just about everything is associated with software. While the future will certainly be a world with interactive screens, the number of people writing the software required by these ever growing screens is not increasing. Computer Science is designed to train the mind towards thinking logically and creatively to solve a problem. Coding teaches logic skills and problem solving and this will assist children to succeed in the digital world. Programming algorithm describes the exact steps that tells the computer to take to solve problems. It is reported that more and more jobs in the future require coding skills and that programming jobs are growing at a rapid rate. Hence there is the need to include learning to write and read code and programming in the school syllabus.
