Sujongchon Primary School in Kangdong County in the capital city of Pyongyang has produced many model lecturers.
Most of its teachers won the title of October 8 Model Lecturer.
It can be said that they have been benefited from the teaching support databases established in the school.
In the past, the school had few model lecturers as its teachers made separate efforts to improve their qualifications.
After drawing a lesson from the fact, the school decided to build databases to be available to everyone. It formed a development team headed by its principal and pushed ahead with the work to this end.
Based on the experiences and lessons of other units, the team held public discussions frequently to modify and supplement the contents of databases.
The databases began to be replenished with model lessons generalized across the country, new excellent teaching methods, experiences, multimedia and others, which proved helpful for teachers to work out teaching plans and improve their qualifications.
Besides, the school did not set any criterion for the regular presentation of teaching experience in a bid to make it contribute substantially to improving the qualifications of teachers.
In the past, it held the presentation by preparing veteran and competent lecturers in advance, but it gradually nominated newcomers or any teachers and chose the contents of their presentation at random.
As a result, a change began to take place in their viewpoint on the presentation and all teachers vied with one another to develop new teaching methods and teaching aids. Among them was “Q&A” which was highly appreciated in the city exhibition of teaching aids.
The school is improving the quality of education step by step by waging brisk campaigns in which one overtakes and learns from others and swaps experience with them.
Besides, it established sister-school relationship with Sinwon Primary School in Pothonggang District, Pyongyang, and, through the video conference system, organized panel discussions on textbooks and model lesson demonstrations frequently so as to improve the practical abilities and qualifications of lecturers.
The improved qualifications of teachers resulted in producing several classes of honour students.
