We leverage on the affordances of technology to engage pupils in collaborative and self-directed learning, which promotes higher order thinking skills.

 

ICT Structured Programme

Tampines Primary School has a Structured ICT programme for pupils from Primary One to Primary Six. The pupils will pick up ICT skills in line with MOE Baseline ICT Standards. The programme integrates ICT skills into the mastering of core subjects such as English and Mother Tongue languages, Mathematics and Art and Crafts. In addition, pupils work with different ICT tools to develop different end products, and are evaluated at the end of the course according to the rubrics created for each level.

ICT Integration Lessons

Constructivism points out that “learners are active builders of their own cognitive structures” (Forcier & Descy, 2008). They must actively construct new knowledge based on their own individual experiences and understanding. Teachers become the guide and facilitator of learning and students become the author of their own learning.  

 


Hence, Tampines Primary School leverages on the potential of ICT to create a rich environment of sensory experiences and provide rich learning experiences which allow students to construct their own knowledge. For example, ICT tools such as Interactive Whiteboards, online games and quizzes, blogs, discussion forums and audio recording tools are used to engage pupils in active learning.
