Teaching-Learning Material (TLM) refers to any material or resource used by teachers to facilitate student learning in the classroom. TLM can include a variety of materials, such as textbooks, workbooks, handouts, multimedia resources, manipulatives, and visual aids.
The purpose of TLM is to support the teacher in delivering the curriculum and to engage students in the learning process. It can help to make the learning process more interactive and engaging and can also provide students with a visual representation of the concepts being taught.
Effective TLM should be aligned with the curriculum and instructional objectives, and should be designed to meet the needs and Learning Management System styles of all students. It should also be accessible, easy to use, and relevant to the students’ experiences.
Examples of TLM include:
- Multimedia resources (e.g. videos, animations, images)
- Manipulatives (e.g. models, puzzles, games)
- Visual aids (e.g. charts, graphs, diagrams)
Using a variety of TLM can help to create a dynamic and engaging learning environment and can support student learning and achievement. Teachers should carefully consider the materials they use in the classroom and choose those that are most appropriate for their students and instructional goals.
