Programme Highlights

ICT in Curriculum & Pedagogy

With the acquisition of knowledge for education technology, teaching and learning in the school can be less teacher-centered and more student-focused with greater emphasis on self-directed and collaborative learning. ICT helps students to organise inquiry by facilitating discussion, problem solving and peer feedback. With the use of ICT, students leverage open tools and apps to work collaboratively with their peers. This form of learning helps students in developing 21st century competencies such as critical thinking skills.

The launch of Singapore Student Learning Space (SLS) is another platform that provides our teachers the opportunity to engage students in Active Learning. With the SLS, students take ownership of their learning as resources are made available anytime, anywhere. In addition, the department integrates the use of mobile technology such as iPads to take learning out of the classroom. With the use of mobile technology, teaching and learning is no longer confined to the four walls of a classroom and students can now gather and share information for self-directed and collaborative learning.


Nurturing Responsible Digital Citizens

The advancement of technology allows students vast exposure to cyberspace. It is thus crucial to equip students with the knowledge and awareness of topics related to Cyberwellness so that they know how to be safe and use technology responsibly.

Students learn to be responsible digital citizens through explicit teaching during Form Teacher Guidance Periods (FTGP) and Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) lessons, as well as from short bite-sized presentations during morning assembly called CCE Bytes. In addition, Student Cyberwellness Ambassadors design and conduct hands-on activities for all students during Cyberwellness Awareness Week (CAW). Through these activities, students learn Cyberwellness tips and awareness of issues such as cyberbullying, excessive screen time and navigating the internet safely and responsibly.



Professional Development of Staff
Equipping our teachers with the relevant competencies is a key responsibility of the ICT department. The department adopts a 3 prong approach (school wide, level base and just-in-time) for the professional development of teachers. These approaches aim to develop our teachers to be competent in harnessing technology for lesson delivery. Besides training the teachers, members of the department actively seeks opportunities to learn about the latest pedagogies in education technology. The knowledge acquired will be transferred through school programmes catered for the development of our students in cognitive and 21st century competencies.
