Teachers’ Perception on Using Kio-Kit to Enhance Teaching and Learning STEM Subjects in Zanzibar

Abstract : In the current situation, teachers are encouraged to use interactive, student-centered approaches than using traditional approaches that mainly focus on ‘chalk and talk’. Student-centered approaches, also learner-centered, involve methods of teaching that shift the focus of instruction from the teacher to the student. When these approaches are powered by technology, they can doubly enhance teaching and learning. The most current technology that gains popularity in Africa in teaching and learning process is the Kio-Kit technology which promised to improve the quality of teaching and learning. It is a digital education toolbox which contains different forms of digital contents to help students in their learning process. The box contains 40 Kio tablets in which students use them to access the contents available in the Kio-Kit box. This paper aims to discuss the perception of using this type of technology from school teachers who have been trained intensively to use them to enhance the teaching and learning of STEM subjects. During the exploration, we confirmed that Kio-Kit technology enhances teaching and learning and helps the students gain necessary skills for the 21st century digital era. The results also reveal STEM teachers’ readiness to use the Kio-Kit technology in the classroom. Further, the paper describes the challenges encountered during the exploration of Kio-Kit in classroom and some suggestions are proposed.
