KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry has realigned the curriculum for all subjects except for Form Five students to ensure quality learning during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Dewan Rakyat was told.
Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon (pic) said the realignment of curriculum involves the changes in content, pedagogy and assessment, based on the desired learning outcomes.
“Through the realignment of the curriculum, teachers can plan their teaching and learning (PdP) by adopting the ‘blended learning approach.’
“The approach involves a mix of face-to-face learning in class technique and a structured home-based learning,” he told Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan) during Question Time.
Bung Moktar had asked the Ministry to explain its efforts to ensure quality learning is maintained and not affected due to school closure.
The Education Ministry, he said, had provided a home-based teaching and learning (PdPr) manual as a guideline for teachers to implement a structured and well-planned PdPr so students can continue learning in an optimum manner.
“The manual covers the approach via online, offline or off-site, either by adopting the learning module or project-based learning,” he said.
He also noted that the ministry will continue to ensure all students have access to learning.
“For students who do not have access to the internet or the relevant devices, teachers can take the initiative to delivering materials directly to the students based on the suitability.
“Students can also use text books copies as a guideline, notes preparations and summary, as well as drawing a concept,” he said.
He added teachers can asses students based on the appropriateness and conduct intervention based on the level and the capabilities of students.
