The dedicated “ວິດີໂອສຳລັບການພັດທະນາຄູ Teacher Development Videos” YouTube channel was created in September 2019 to help primary teachers develop their skills in using the new National Primary Curriculum and the new pedagogical approach. The channel already contains 14 training videos on different topics such as Lao Language techniques and resources, classroom management strategies, peer-to-peer learning activities for continuing professional development, techniques and approaches to effectively assess students. The “ວິດີໂອສຳລັບການພັດທະນາຄູ Teacher Development Videos” YouTube channel also contains more than 50 Grade 1 and 2 songs and music from the new curriculum that teachers can use in their classroom.
The new video topic is Lao Language Grade 2 curriculum. It explores the technique 13A on how different text types are structured, how paragraphing is done and to support students to use the same structure in their own writing and writing. In the video, the 6 steps of this technique are demonstrated live in a Lao classroom.
Next month, another video on Lao Language Grade 2 will be released. The subject will be technique 13 B. The purpose of this technique is to teach children how to recognize the different kind of sentences used in each text studied, recognize appropriate text order and use appropriate sentence structure in their own writing and speaking.
You can find the new video and many others under the YouTube Channel: ວິດີໂອສໍາລັບການພັດທະນາຄູ Teacher Development Videos. All the new videos are dubbed in Sign Language to be more accessible to all. They are produced by teams from the e-learning, information media center and curriculum writing departments of RIES with support from the Australian Government.
