Since 2016, XSEED, an education and technology company with headquarters in Singapore, has been helping educators in the Philippines shift their teaching methods with a comprehensive teaching and learning program. In 2017, it saw exponential growth with 30 primary schools in Luzon adopting the XSEED program.
XSEED’s unique “Five Step Learning Process” ensures that children develop critical and analytical thinking skills by replacing traditional “chalk and talk” teaching methods. The program comprises over 10,000 comprehensive, researched teaching plans to help XSEED-trained teachers uncover and share each concept, step-by-step.
The said teaching plans guide teachers on how to teach each concept—setting a clear aim aligned with a learning outcome, conducting an activity, analyzing the experience, applying it in everyday life, and finally assessing what children have learned.
Schools adopting the XSEED method see marked improvements in problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, and communication in English. A 2014 study showed that XSEED children outperformed their peers in non-XSEED schools by up to 20 percent on an average across grades and even more on items requiring mastery of higher-order inference and reasoning skills.
