The theme for this year’s Crescent Academy for Digital Age Learning (CrADLe) Webinar was Home-Based Learning: Overcoming Challenges, Igniting Innovation. CrADLe is a platform for educators to come together to share and celebrate best practices.
Mrs Teresa Tay and Mr James Han shared about our school’s journey in preparing our teachers to carry out home-based learning. Some teachers became e-coaches to support their colleagues through peer lesson observations and providing technical advice. Teachers learnt from one another through the termly Staff Bulletin and the inaugural Virtual Learning Festival. A Staff Journal was given to all teachers for their lesson planning and weekly reflections.
Mr Leow Qinjin shared about two Primary 6 Science lesson packages that he had created on the topics of Forces and Food Chains and Food Webs. The packages were a mix of online home-based learning and in-class lessons – also known as Blended Learning. Mr Leow carefully designed activities to deepen students’ learning, excite them to read up beyond what was assigned and promote online collaboration among students.
Our teachers will continue to innovate and collaborate to carry out meaningful and interesting lessons – both online and in-class – for our students.
