With the changing education landscape, children need to gain skills and disposition to prepare them for life. Most paper-based assessment methods are designed with an average child in mind. A Chinese worksheet, for instance, tends to test a child's knowledge of characters that are too complex, skipping too many stages in the learning process such as reading and writing characters. Worksheets limit a child's self-expression and do not capture the different learning needs of individual children fully.
In our third and final series on 'Why Worksheets Don't Work', we speak to Denise Teo, Pedagogist at EtonHouse, on the use of "Provocation Pages" at EtonHouse International Education Group's pre-schools.
