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.
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.
