In the School of Science and Technology, Singapore (SST), technology is integral to the core curriculum which is the foundation that creates space for new ways of teaching, learning and social interaction to take place.

While a robust backbone infrastructure (such as accessibility to the internet and availability of devices) is essential to create a 1-to-1 ICT-enabled learning experience, the belief of the institution and the approach it takes, determines how successful the implementation would be.

This presentation will show how SST has successfully leveraged its 1-to-1 ICT-enabled programme to incorporate student–directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) in the design of learning experiences in class and at home. This would be illustrated through several lessons implemented by teachers who have creatively and successfully leveraged the easily available Web 2.0 technologies like Google Apps and Blogs to support teaching and learning.

Use of Information and Communication Technology

In SST, a range of technology platforms and applications are deployed to uncover core academic principles, and provide extended socio-affective and leadership experiences that allow for new ways of learning, teaching and social interaction.
The use of simulation tools, dynamic geometrical software and applets create a classroom that encourages intellectual curiosity, and critical thinking. On-line platforms and tools support an interactive classroom where students learn to exchange ideas to build collective wisdom whilst managing issues from multiple perspectives. Students also leverage on a range of media applications to communicate their thoughts and reflections, and demonstrate their understanding in numerous ways beyond the conventional.

In a nutshell, these are the broad categories of platforms and applications we use in SST.

The choice of technological platform and applications is largely based on the objectives and nature of the learning programme.
