Use of ICT to Facilitate Teaching & Learning

The Department believes in the knowledge and use of ICT tools to facilitate the Teaching and Learning process for our staff and students. We believe that the use of ICT will help bring about greater collaborative and self-directed learning. Hence, the Department continually explores and shares with staff and students the various Web 2.0 and Open Source software as well as programs for their suitability in engaging our students in their learning. The use of Web 2.0 and Open Source software for teaching is very popular these days as students are able to download and use the software freely anywhere without licensing expiry issues. These softwares are also versatile as they can be run on Windows, Macintosh or Linux-based computers. Some of the softwares currently used in the school include OpenOffice, MOODLE, GIMP, Prezi, GoogleApps, Geogebra and Padlet, just to name a few.

Besides exploring Web 2.0 and Open Source softwares to enhance the Teaching and Learning experience, the Department also complements this with the review and upgrading of ICT facilities in the school to facilitate the use of ICT tools. The learning corner in the library has been facelifted with the addition of 6 iPads to allow students to explore and use applications for their work after school. Also, the IT Resource Room was refurbished with the addition of ITR2 to support the school’s direction in having banded classes and to provide a space that can support STEM strategies. This new learning space allows ease of mobility and enhances the collaborative learning experience of our students.
