Author(s): Chee Keong Chua
Abstract: The main goals of lesson study are to assist teachers become lifelong learners and to create engaging and motivational lesson units for their learners. Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) similarly has seen to have the potential to radically change teaching and learning in classrooms. However, research has shown that one of the limiting factors in the take-up rate for ICT has been the confidence levels of teachers in using the varied IT tools in their lessons as well as the lack of peer support in developing strong lessons that tap on the affordances of ICT. This paper seeks to explore how lesson study will allow teachers to develop higher level models of teaching units that incorporate ICT across subjects. It will investigate how teachers can begin to discover, share and verify what works well within a student-centric learning environment.
