We all know how learning the rules of any language can be dry and teaching them can be difficult.
We develop an educational card game called Tutla to overcome this challenge. Tutla is a teaching and learning aid primarily developed to facilitate the learning of our scientific rules of learning imbuhan. It is a bridge from knowing the rules to applying them when completing imbuhan exercises. We believe Tutla has potential to make learning of Malay language rules fun!
We have successfully secured cluster funding to print Tutla for secondary schools in our N3 cluster that offer Malay. Each school will receive 10 sets of Tutla after attending our professional sharing at Pei Hwa Secondary School on how we use Tutla in our lessons. We could sense the excitement among the teachers who attended our professional sharing and are pleased with their interest to use Tutla in their lessons too.
We are now in the process of applying funding from the Malay Language Learning and Promotion Committee to support our series of Tutla workshop next year and for the printing of 500 sets of Tutla to be given away to secondary school teachers from other clusters who attend our workshops.
We have published Tutla at The Game Crafter. If you would like to own a personal set or make bulk purchase for your school, you can place your order of Tutla via The Game Crafter here: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/tutla
We will be sharing on this page some game plays to use Tutla in lesson. Please check on this page from time to time.
