Developing 21st Century Skills in Mathematics Classroom Using Comics and Storytelling

DR. TOH TIN LAM

The speaker has started on a series of two research projects on the use of comics to enhance students’ learning of mathematics. The research studies show how students respond to comics in mathematics classrooms, focusing on their motivation and self-concept. To the researchers reflecting on the designing phase of the researchers and the implementation of the teachers during the lessons, it was found that 21st century skills are being enhanced using this approach of instruction. This talk discusses some of these aspects and the positive results as seen from the two research projects.
