The Alliance Cultural Foundation (ACF) believes that education should and can be different. Learn-Think-Express is an immersive and active teaching method; it triggers the process of digesting knowledge and returns the learning initiative back to the student. The traditional unilateral, force-feeding style of teaching limits the student’s joy, speed, and ability to learn. When all that is taught is meant for testing purposes only, students lose their motivation for learning quickly. Students can read three times faster than teachers can speak. By changing the classroom focus to learning, thinking, and expressing good grades come naturally. Learn-Think-Express was first initiated in 2013 by Taipei Municipal Zhongshan Girls High School (ZGHS) teacher Hui-Cheng Zhang; Zhang was the first in Taiwan to introduce the ‘always open classrooms’. Learn-Think-Express is a path to ever-learning for both the teachers and the students, and has been adopted in classrooms across Asia. In December 2016, with the administrative support of ACF, Zhang will lead the first annual 2016 Learn-Think-Express Asia Conference in Taipei, inviting educators and speakers worldwide.
