Abstract

Learning has to be active so that students can make links between their schemata and what they are about to learn. Many students attend to class presumptuous a passive mindset. Teachers tend to reinforce learning as an observer. The result is that a classroom and generally the learning environment is mostly limited to transmission of information rather than the meaningful construction and function of knowledge. A group of teachers from Hulu Langat Primary school set out to change this, within the context of their own classrooms. The teachers formed a community of practice which began with discussions on how to stimulate active learning in year six classrooms. For most members of the community, the teachers-based method has been the dominant approach. This paper will explain the process, successes and challenges based on the understanding and data collected by this community of practice functioning as an action research team.
