Pehla Taleemi Basta
First Educational Bag
Medium: Educational Kit

 

The Pehla Taleemi Basta (PTB) is an educational kit prepared by TRC for use in the pre-primary classroom. This folding cloth bag contains ready-to-use learning material and teaching aids, including pictures, basic scientific equipment, beads and threading cards. The kit comes with a teacher’s guide, which provides suggestions on using the material for initial literacy, numeracy and science activities.

The PTB, which was produced in 1999 after considerable research and usability testing, enables the pre-primary teacher with little or no training to instantly create an active learning environment in the classroom. Ten years later, in 2009 it underwent a thorough review by teachers and TRC staff. A couple of pockets and materials were removed, some materials added and some changed. The bag itself was redesigned and now wears a slightly newer look.
