Abstract:

The panel will provide fresh evidence of the impact of active school methodology in the learning outcomes of 500 primary school children in Equatorial Guinea from 2008 to 2010. The panel will present the unique characteristics of this Spanish-speaking African nation, the key education challenges of its primary schools and the results of three-year longitudinal study in early grade reading, math and teacher practices at the classroom level. Through a five-year education program, a core group of 54 urban and rural primary schools are introducing new classroom practices serving four thousand children in this multi-ethnic geographically dispersed country comprised of islands and a mainland region. The panel will compare the impact on learning for boys and girls utilizing the new pedagogical methods based on teacher facilitation of student inquiry-based learning utilizing locally-produced student learning materials. The panel will present three research efforts measuring grasp of basic concepts in reading and math. Furthermore, the panel will consider these results in light of teacher practices in classrooms in both control and active learning schools focusing on first and second grade. Finally, the panel members will aim at linking these results with the worldwide evidence of early grade teaching and learning to read in similar countries in Africa and Latin America. The panel’s findings will further enrich the growing body of evidence of active learning methodologies in Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as, the possible action items to make effective gains in classroom teaching practices in support of student learning.
