Developing Self-Directed and Collaborative Learners

“We are going to go to the Computer Lab today!” It is the students’ weekly lesson in the computer lab and they got ready excitedly. Teachers engage the students in blended learning whereby they have the opportunity to learn at their own pace and discover new knowledge. In addition, students extend their learning through collaboration with their peers and share ideas to gain new perspectives in online activities. As learning can take place anytime and anywhere, students are able to access the learning materials from home too.

Effectiveness of ICT-based lessons

Hotspot 1B

“ICT tools have value added students’ learning because it help to make our lessons more interactive and engaging. They are able to explore new concepts and discuss with their peers. In addition, we could leverage on the power of technology to provide instant feedback to our students and help them learn better. It also help us to adapt our lessons and strategies to better support our students in learning” These are some of the thoughts expressed by our teachers. Technology boots active learning, creating a participatory, connected, and reflective classroom which nurtures the future-ready learners.

Physical and Digital Spaces: Transforming the way students learn

From our Full Home-Based Learning experience, our students have developed the confidence to learn with technology in different learning contexts, with teachers blending learning seamlessly in both face-to-face and online spaces. Students shared that they were more confident in raising questions and building on their knowledge through online discussions.

Learning can indeed take place anytime and anywhere as students shared that they were very happy to see their teachers and peers online and learn from one another. “The Zoom lesson was an extension to what my students had learnt from the lesson in Student Learning Space. The students drew the shapes that they had learnt from the lesson, applied and extended knowledge gleaned by using Mathematical language to describe them. This provided me with feedback on my students’ level of understanding and ability to apply knowledge in a context,” said Mrs Tay, a Math teacher.

Building up ICT skills proficiency

In order for students to be confident in harnessing technology for learning, they acquire ICT skills through an enrichment programme. The skills are aligned to the MOE ICT Baseline standards and are integrated into the curriculum. Our Primary 1 students are introduced to PC Literacy and touch-typing so as to build up their mastery of navigation in the cyber world. As our students build confidence in harnessing technology, we engage our Primary 2 to 6 students in self-directed and collaborative learning through Google Classrooms.  At Primary 2, students apply their touchtyping skills and write a short story using Google Documents.


Introducing presentation skills to our Primary 3 students, they share their story on the Stellar Unit – Fear though Google Slides. Mdm Uuchi said, “The use of Google Classroom and Slides encourages exploration and creativity. Students learn how to have their text and image work together to express their voice and create meaning.” One of our Primary 3 student, Esher, said that he enjoys using Google Slides to write his stories. It allows him to edit and improve on his stories easily. He can also share his stories with his friends as they learnt from one another.

Our Primary 4 to 6 students engage in a photojournalism learning activity through the use of Google Slides, as part of our learning activities in Viewpoints.

Values in Real and Cyber World

There is no difference in the way students interact in the real and cyber world. Technology has advanced greatly where communications and sharing of information is made possible through social media or a simple click of a button. It is important to equip our students with Cyberwellness values to develop them to be responsible and discerning users of technology. Topics such as online identity and expression, balanced use of ICT, netiquette, copyright, cyberbullying and cyber contacts are taught to students in a fun and engaging manner. Students learn about these topics through interactive talks, ICT enrichment, Young Photographers, games and activities during recess. As the technology landscape progresses rapidly, it is important to educate our students to make responsible choices online.

National Cyberwellness Advocacy Challenege (NCAC)

Meet our Cyberwellness Ambassadors! Alara, Devesh, Hidayat and Sophia!


Our Cyberwellness Ambassadors participated in the NCAC to design interesting and relevant content that would engage parents in the active promotion of Cyberwellness, as well as share practical strategies to manage their children’s use of technology. Based on the theme, “Fake News: Spot It, Evaluate It, Remove It!, Our Cyberwellness Ambassadors attended online trainings. They then applied their knowledge to create a board game to educate technology users to utilise the S.U.R.E. method of information literacy and to identify the validity of news being shared to readers.

Our board game attained the Gold Award at the NCAC in 2021.

There was an outreach plan to engage our students by class, level and their families. Click here to read more about our experience for NCAC.

The NCAC was an enriching learning experience. “I learnt that it is important to watch out for fake news,” Alara shared, “if we trust or believe fake news, it can hurt us and our family.”
