Competition
This competition is for all educators in primary and secondary education, who are in one way or the other involved in education programmes of VVOB in Kenya. Participation is more important than winning: our aim is to inspire and motivate you as a teacher to reflect on your teaching practice and to share your good practices. We also hope that we really inspire teacher trainers, because if ATL is integrated in teacher education, the multiplication effect will be considerable. Finally, we expect to talk to the educational managers, whether from the schools or from the supporting Government institutions, because their support to this competition is vital.

What is ATL?

Join!

The term active teaching and learning refers to a wide range of student-centered, context relevant and activating approaches which are rooted in a social constructivist and situated cognition view on learning. Such an approach is expected to improve the quality of education by promoting contemporary knowledge, effective professional skills, creativity, independent and critical thinking skills, problem solving capability and a high adaptability to a continuously changing environment. ICT Integration refers to the seamless integration of ICT in the teaching and learning process. It is not just about the use of a laptop, a beamer and a PowerPoint presentation for example; it is about using these tools to teach more actively.

Objectives of the ATL competition


To encourage teachers/lecturers from around the world to explore developed learning materials on ATL. To encourage teachers/lecturers from around the world to develop and to submit quality cases of ATL. To create a resource and promotion material for VVOB with exciting examples from around the world on ATL.
