In the TBL smarter classroom, team-based learning is conducted in small groups, and combined with technological aids, teacher-centered teaching is transformed to student-centered teaching through communication, cooperation, discussion, and sharing through teamwork and technology tools. The traditional classroom is flipped.
What is TBL ?
TBL is the abbreviation of Team-based Learning, which means letting students learn in teamwork and group cooperation. In class, students are divided into groups in random, homogeneous or heterogeneous ways, and group members form a table to facilitate group discussion, learn and solve problems by self-study, thinking, discussion, and publication.
TBL's teaching model research has a history of decades. However, in the past, in traditional classrooms, if teachers want to practice this kind of educational concept with very good learning effects, it is not easy for many teachers, and the process is very difficult! But with the help of technology, it will be easier for teachers to join the ranks of TBL teaching & learning.
The TBL Smarter Classroom environment provided by HABOOK combines the concepts of TEAM Model smarter education support system and smart teaching models, and proposes the "TEAM Model Team-based Learning Model". The TBL Smarter Classroom application environment built in this model will be able to achieve a deep integration of education, teaching and information technology.

Synchronous tasks in groups to promote cooperation, sharing and expression
HiTeach's synchronized audio-visual and data transmission technology supports the type of data interaction required for synchronous interaction with each group, so as to enhance the quality and effectiveness of cooperative learning of the TBL.
1. Push and Works Collection The group synchronous task is to combine the task functions of the HiTeach 5 on the teacher side and the HiGroup on the student side. After the teacher has prepared the teaching materials (presentation files or multimedia content), after pressing the Start Lesson button, the synchronization task (work collection function) can be started at any time. The page content of tasks on the teacher side will be automatically synchronized to the HiGroup on the student side, and group members can discuss and sort out the tasks according to the tasks, and then submit the results to HiTeach on the teacher side. In the process of completing and submitting tasks for each group, the teacher-end work collection window can fully grasp the completion progress of each group, and select works according to the time sequence for observation, comparison, mutual evaluation, praise, annotation, explanation or sharing. 2. Task follow When the teacher side switches the task of the content page, the task follow function on the student side will synchronize with the task page on the teacher side to continue the new operation of the learning task. 3. Task history browsing The teacher can turn on or off the submission switch of each task according to the characteristics of the task. For learning tasks that have not yet been closed, students can use the task history browsing function to view the task history, submit later completed works, or update works. 4. Multiple task types When the teacher starts the synchronous task function, you can choose the type of work that students can submit, such as task drawing board (picture), audio recording, video recording, text or multimedia files (PPT, Excel...), etc. This fully supports the learning and practice activities required by the synchronized lesson.
It 's so easy to work in groups!
In the TBL Smarter Classroom, teachers can Push the page of the group tablet, and students can use the functions of Fast Deliver, Submit, and HiMessage to aggregate information to teachers after group discussions. With the aid of technology, teachers guide the group to discuss and summarize the results, and then gather them to the teachers. Teachers have less time to tell, and students have more time to study, think and discuss. Instructional design can arrange more pre-lesson activities to guide students to establish prior knowledge to achieve the effect of flipping the classroom.
IRS+Tablet Varied interaction methods
The IRS Interactive Response System allows each student to express their opinions in real time with the clicker on the hand. The HiTeach TBL system can display information including the whole class's statistical charts and group's statistical charts based on the data clicked by the students. Teachers can carry out differentiated push functions based on this, push different contents to each group, and achieve differentiated teaching and accomplishment-oriented teaching of diverse ideas. In this environment, teachers can not only focus on the group, but also the individual students. According to the data to promote expression and sharing of diverse ideas, teachers and students can fully enjoy this lively learning atmosphere.
Cultivate the key qualities of future talents
Future talents must not only be able to think independently, but also be able to cooperate with others. In the TBL smarter classroom, the division and cooperation of team members is a normal task in the classroom. Students can promote the development of high-level thinking skills in the process of interaction with peers and teachers and the stimulation of thinking. Students will be better able to further develop communication, creativity, thinking, cooperation, problem-solving... and other key qualities needed by future talents.
Classroom as society Cultivating social skills
The Team-Based Learning model encompasses social learning situations, and is highly effective in the large-class teaching format currently seen in schools. The TBL model fosters socialization through discussion and interaction between individuals, and also includes the “learning through doing” concept while promoting the establishment of teamwork and social skills. In addition, through the IRS system to grasp the individual feedback information of the students, teachers can automatically pick out the group members to share and express through the system, so that the group members have a fair expression environment. Teachers can also grasp the different aspects of each group member's views on the problem and adopt different teaching strategies.
With additional students' terminals, data decision-making & effects doubled
In addition to the application of group cooperation, if each student can also have a terminal that can interact and feedback, then there will be more teaching modes that can be applied in the TBL smarter classroom! Not only can every student have the opportunity to express themselves, but for teachers, there are more data to judge the overall performance of the class and pay attention to every student in the classroom. The choices of student feedback terminal devices include IRS clickers, or Web IRS where every student has a tablet (or mobile phone). After adding individual feedback devices for students, the teaching scenarios that can be extended and applied will not be repeated here. Please refer to the introduction of IRS Smarter Classroom and Mobile Smarter Classroom.
The TBL model has been developed for more than 30 years since it was proposed in the 1980s. It is based on students' self-study, with cooperative discussion and problem solving in the classroom as the core, allowing students to think and solve problems on their own, allowing students to take the initiative in learning.
The main effects for students are as follows:
Stimulate the enthusiasm of active learning: TBL model can stimulate students' enthusiasm for problem-solving and active learning. Students are immersed in the problem-solving situation in the classroom, which strengthens their motivation and desire for learning. Experiments and research have proved that it can improve students' learning effectiveness.
Promote high-level thinking such as analysis, evaluation, and creativity: Students will be able to promote their high-level thinking skills in analysis, evaluation, and creativity in the process of interacting with peers, teachers, and brainstorming session. In this way, students will be able to further cultivate the key qualities needed by future talents such as communication, creativity, thinking, cooperation, and problem solving.
Cultivate the quality and skills of teamwork: Collaborative discussion can allow students of different levels to learn and benefit in a socialized context, which is the so-called teaching and learning promote and enhance each other. The socialized context is the interaction, communication, cooperation, discussion and sharing between people. The TBL learning model has the characteristics of a socialized learning context, which can make the current school’s large-class teaching style effective.
Promote students’ motivation to actively participate: Provide immediate graphical feedback to enable students to respond to problems and further strengthen students’ motivation to actively participate in discussions.
Encourage students to focus and devote themselves to the learning content: Students must respond to the teacher’s questions, prompt students to think about the problem, and interact with options/text/image/sound/files and other mechanisms.
Assist students in a deeper conceptual understanding: Students must further explain the reason behind the answer, so this can encourage students to explore their inner thinking.
Student performance and diagnosis: After the test, the teacher can immediately grasp the results, and the teacher can also use interactive explanations with statistics to make learning focus and absorption better.
The main effects for teachers are as follows:
Able to take into account the educational needs of examinations and multiple instruction: When teachers want to change their teaching methods, they may hesitate because of the pressure of considering students' test scores! The TBL learning model has been confirmed by research to improve students' diversified literacy and assessment performance at the same time.
Easier to shift from teacher-centered to student-centered: In the classroom, teachers spend less time talking, and students spend more time on self-study, thinking, and discussion. This actually provides an opportunity for teachers to shift from teacher-centered teaching to student-centered teaching.
Students of all levels can benefit: Peer learning and teaching among students can benefit students of different levels.
Class activities that can be combined with flipped classrooms: The TBL learning model is also very suitable as classroom activities for flipped classrooms, because both have the elements of student self-study, classroom discussion, and student-centered.
Assist teachers in diagnosing learning status and provide decision-making reference: The TBL system can collect students’ answers and make statistics, assist teachers in finding students’ learning problems from the answers immediately, fully assist teachers in assessing the situation, effectively clarify myths, and inspire follow-up discussions.
Improve the interaction mode between teachers and students: Assist teachers to effectively grasp the fairness of teacher-student interaction, so that all students have equal opportunities for learning and expression.
Improve the fluency of teaching: The TBL system encourages students to focus on the key points of learning, save teaching time, and make classroom situations rich and interesting without losing control.
Convenient for teachers to use: The system is simple to operate, so that teachers can focus on teaching, and teaching thoughts are not easily interfered by technological tools.
Increase the diversity of teaching and pay attention to every child: Teachers can design questions to allow students to feedback and interact through options/text/images/sounds/files and other mechanisms to increase the diversity and richness of teaching. Every student must respond. Achieve attention to each child.
