Paradigm Shift
  • (CBTL)

Secondary Education Curriculum
  • Ordinary Level (Forms 1-4) Students are required
    to study at least 7 subjects These include
  • Civics, Geography, English, Biology
  • History, Kiswahili and Basic Mathematics
  • 2. Advanced Level (Forms 5 - 6) a student
    specializes in a combination of three subjects
    (minimum )
  • The curriculum review cycle in Tanzania is 8
    years. Review of O-level syllabi is over, that of
    A-level is in progress.

Secondary Education CurriculumContd
  • The existing review cycle is due to
  • Serious social problems i.e. HIV/AIDS, Poor
    gender relations, environmental destruction
  • Serious scientific and technological changes in
    the world i.e. information and communication
  • Serious changes in the pedagogy and
    teaching/learning methods
  • Major shift in curriculum paradigm

What do you envisage to be the roles of
students and those of teachers in the following
teaching and learning approaches?
  • 1. Teacher centered Vs Learner centered.
  • 2. Content Vs Competence.
  • 3. Knowledge inheritance Vs Knowledge
  • 4. Product Vs Process.
  • 5. End of lesson evaluation Vs Classroom
  • 6. Behaviorism theory of learning Vs
    Constructivism theory.
  • 7. Memorization of facts Vs Higher order thinking

Secondary Education CurriculumContd
  • Elements of the reviewed curriculum
  • Competence development
  • Learner-Centered teaching
  • Co-operative learning
  • Assessment and Constructivism

Secondary Education CurriculumContd
  • Competences placed in the reviewed
  • curriculum falls into 6 main groups
  • Communication
  • Numeracy
  • Creative and critical thinking
  • Technology
  • Interpersonal competences
  • Self learning/Independent learning competence

  • The focus is on improving learners understanding
    of the language demands in the required areas of
    learning. As such the learner shall be able to
  • Use a range of language experiences for
    developing knowledge of a subject area
  • Convey and use information, instructions, ideas
    and feelings appropriately and effectively in a
    range of different social and cultural context
  • Use language for different audiences and purposes
    relevant to oneself and the subject area
  • Understand and use the vocabulary, structures and
    forms of expressions which characterize each area
    of study.

  • Basic mathematics skills and numeracy are
    fundamental for strengthening in all other fields
    of learning. Through this competence students
    shall have the ability to
  • Organize information to support logic and
  • Recognize and use numerical patterns and
    relationships confidentially and competently
  • Recognize, understand, analyse and respond to
    information which is presented in numerical and
    mathematical forms such as graphs, tables and
    charts as applied within the subject area.
  • Use a range of instruments including electronics
    confidently and competently.
  • Provide basic estimates and calculations
    accurately and proficiently

Crreative and critical thinking
  • This competence consists of two aspects
  • Analytical-involving critical evaluation of data,
    identifying and defining problems, identifying
    probable causes and suggesting possible
  • Conceptual-involving ability to think in abstract
    terms to see a big picture and and understand how
    the different parts fit together.

  • Being competent in Technology students
  • will appreciate the value and limitation of
  • technology in society and participate in the
  • shaping of public policies related to
  • technological change

Technology Contd
  • As such learners will develop abilities to
  • Realize their roles and responsibilities related
    to technological changes
  • Develop modern view of technology and appreciate
    its value and limitation in the society
  • Make decisions related to technological
    developments for positive development of the
    individual and society.
  • Make appropriate use of technology in solving
    problems at the individual and community level.
  • In particular the competence helps in
    finding and gathering information from multiple
    sources and apply that information creatively to
    specific tasks and problems

Interpersonal Competencies
  • Elements of Learner-centeredness in teaching.
  • The learner learns by doing a variety of logical
    and planned activities
  • The lesson is built on what the learner already
  • Learner past experiences are respected
  • The learner seek knowledge by interacting with
    the teacher, the peer, the T/L materials and the
    subject content
  • Teaching and Assessment are done by covering all
    the 6 levels of the cognitive domain
  • The teacher is a facilitator of learning rather
    than a provider of knowledge

Self learning/Independent learning competence
Perceptions on CBTL
  • The main thrust of the shift of Paradigm was to
    put the competence based curriculum at the heart
    of what is taught and learned along with
    constructivist methods of delivering subject
  • CBTL aims at engaging students in a learning
  • Through CBTL Students will work harder than their
    teachers and will develop motivation,
    self-discipline and self-awareness to become
    successful learners in terms of outcomes.
  • CBTL promotes integrated learning and makes the
    classroom and the school in general an active
    learning community.

Teachers Role in CBTL
  • Unlike in content-based T/L, the teacher has no
    role of- a direct knowledge transmitter Instead
  • The teacher is to influence cognitive development
    and knowledge construction
  • To facilitate learning through use of guidance
    strategies and provision of tools such as problem
    solving and inquiry-based learning activities.
  • Generally, the teachers roles in CBTL approach
    are Motivator, Facilitator and class Manager.
