    Picture of two classrooms


    Teacher-Centred Classroom

    • Teacher reads the textbook or writes questions and answers on the blackboard and students copy these. At times one child reads the textbook aloud while others listen.

    • Children memorise facts given in the textbook or as told by the teacher.

    • Teacher controls what happens in the class. Children’s participation is minimal.

    • Children generally learn individually.

    • Timetable is fixed.

    • Seating arrangement is fixed.

    • Material is only for display.


    • Children look bored and disinterested.


    Child-Centred Classroom

    Teacher provides learning opportunities and guides learning.• Children participate actively in different activities/tasks.

    • Teacher provides learning situations that give children an opportunity to observe, explore, question, experience and develop their own understanding of various concepts.

    • Children construct knowledge on their own, based on their experiences in and outside the school.

    • Children work both individually and also in groups, discussing, sharing, co-operating and respecting others’ viewpoints.

    • Timetable is flexible, depending on what children want to do.

    • Seating arrangement changes according to the activity.

    • A variety of materials, aids and equipments are available and used by children.


    • Children do not get distracted when visitors come in or the teacher goes out as they are engrossed in what they are doing.
