My experience with the programme has changed the way I teach, 100%. The process made me realise that you cannot just expect something from the student, but you need to consider his ability and his pace. I have now started thinking from students’ point of view. While earlier, I used to focus students to answer in class, now my focus is on eliciting a variety of answers and preparing in advance to answer or clarify them. Students now know that if I come to class, there is going to be something different in class, there will be some activity, or something interesting. I have seen a positive attitude and happiness in student learning with respect to maths , a subject they fear.
But when I started working with the Teacher Pages on the video lesson, I started to understand myself that what mistakes happen [while teaching]. For example, I would only teach sums (using formulae), but I never thought of helping the students prove the formulae using constructivist methods. This interaction invoked in me, a thinking process. I have started seeing and thinking about a particular topic from various angles. Earlier, I used to teach in only one specific way, but after this experience, I have started thinking systematically about various directions a lesson could take in class, what doubts students may have. I never thought about these things in so much depth in the past.
