Technology In Action
In this day and age where information technology (ICT) has pervaded almost every area of our lives, teachers have to accept the reality that traditional methods of teaching are not as effective in engaging this generation of ICT-savvy students. Increasingly, the teacher’s role is to facilitate self-directed and collaborative learning, and technology has become a means to this end. To promote the use of ICT in school, Technology In Action sessions has been organised to promote the spirit of experimentation and innovation through effective and pervasive use of ICT in classroom teaching.
Platforms such as Reflection cum Curriculum planning time, Staff development time and the SMC meetings were used to share success stories of teachers where engaged and effective learning were possible leveraging on Student Learning Space (SLS) as well as to introduce new updated technologies.
West Zone Cyberwellness Ambassador Workshop
Cyber Wellness Student Ambassador Programme (CWSAP) is organised to engage the student community on Cyber Wellness (CW) education in schools. The objectives of this workshop are to engage Cyberwellness Ambassadors (CWSA) in peer advocacy through discussions and implementation of cyber wellness activities, to equip CWSAs with facilitation skills and questioning techniques that enable them to engage their fellow school mates (participants) and also to guide CWSAs to design Cyber Wellness activities that leverages on ICT for effective delivery and learning. We hope to continue to run this programme to build capacity of the CWSAs through the support of the West Zone Secondary Schools. We believe that it is crucial for secondary school students to be equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes related to cyber wellness in this digital age, in line with our national education objectives.
The school organises E-Learning day for all Secondary 1 to 5 students. The objective of this E-Learning day is to move towards student – centered learning using Student Learning Space as a mode of learning and also to minimize the loss of curriculum time and to keep students gainfully occupied at home during an unscheduled school closure. ICT enabled teaching and learning approaches such as collaborative learning, inquiry based learning and assessment for learning were used for the design of lesson packages.
ICT Programme for Secondary 1 and 2
The objective of the ICT Training programme is to train students to attain higher competency in Microsoft Office Tools. Skills learnt are essential to do projects which are given by subject teachers.
