Information Communication Technology
The school’s ICT plan leverages on three platforms to equip and develop in students the 21st century competencies, i.e. critical and inventive thinking skills and information and communication skills, to succeed in the 21st century.
1. ICT Skills Training Programme
The Primary 1 to 6 students will undergo a structured ICT Training Programme targeted at acquiring ICT skills. A structure is established to ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn about the basic computer programmes like Microsoft Office. They will be given opportunities to apply their skills through various platforms ranging from the creation of a e-poster to a Powerpoint presentation. These skills will form the baseline and enable them to overcome the challenges of an evolving ICT landscape as they progress on to a higher level of education.
2. Learning Management System
By integrating rich multimedia content with intuitive features, our school leverages on the MC Online Education Learning Management System to provide a more holistic approach towards teaching and learning for our students. With online collaborative tools such as the social learning wall that support collaboration beyond the classroom, students are able to work in teams to contribute ideas and work towards a common goal. In addition, the repository of curriculum-based digital content that can be readily accessed by the students enhances self-directed learning which can take place both within and outside curriculum time.
3. The Use of Mobile Technology
Beyond simply providing a way to engage our technologically-savvy students, our school enriches students’ learning with the opportunities to acquire and apply skills of the new digital age and enjoys a rich and engaging learning environment that facilitates learning on-the-go. Mobile technologies such as the iPads and online collaborative platforms like the iMTL portal are used to provide innovative educational experiences to transform students into self-directed learners of the 21st century.
