STEM aims to improve teachers’ proficiency in English and their confidence and ability to teach through the medium of English. It is hoped that through developing their proficiency and confidence, teachers will be able to apply more learner-centred methodologies in the classroom. The project was implemented through a blended-learning package which combines self-managed learning through printed units, learner journals, and audio learning materials; and support from School Based Mentors (SBMs) and school based personnel (SBPs). The audio content is delivered through pre-loaded micro-SD memory cards on mobile phones as well as the Life Player (a solar-powered MP3 player with recording function and in-built speakers).
