United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
During 1979, nine National Workshops were organized in Afghanistan, India, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Socialist Republic of Vietnam to analyze national experiences relating to the designing and developing of innovative science curriculum and instructional materials for linking science education to real-life situations. This document presents highlights of these national workshops. Topics presented include, among others, units of activities related to real-life situations, problems and issues in science education, a list of some "how to make" low-cost science equipment, pre-service and in-service programs, implementation considerations, and recommended activities to follow-up the workshops.
