The ICT Department adopts a holistic approach towards introducing ICT in education. We seek to nurture our students into:
1. Competent and responsible users of ICT
2. Critical thinkers, effective problem solvers
DIGITAL AND MEDIA LITERACY
Our students are introduced specific values education and ICT skills at appropriate stages of their education. The DML programme aims to cultivate positive and responsible 21st century learners through the teaching of baseline knowledge, skills and dispositions (KSD) that are in alignment with MOE’s ICT Masterplan. The KSD are infused into the curriculum subjects to facilitate consistency and relevance in application.

CURRICULUM INTEGRATION (Lower Primary)
The integration of ICT into the curriculum purposefully draws together core components from within or across subject areas to develop a more powerful understanding of key ideas and concepts. ICT connects components of the curriculum and enables it to be delivered meaningfully and effectively to the students.
Examples of ICT integrated programmes for 2015:
E-Learning and Learning Portals
Our students are diverse, tech savvy and tech dependent, impatient multitaskers. When it comes to learning, their needs extend beyond traditional curriculum. Learning online has become a norm. Through online learning, our students get numerous opportunities to produce pupil-directed work, to make choices, and exercise control over appropriate aspects of their learning experiences.
Incidentally, our parents are encouraged to play a part to support and reinforce online learning at home. Our students will enjoy learning more if they know they have their parents to guide and supervise while they learn online.
SCHOOL-BASED CURRICULUM (Middle-Upper
The SBC represents our relentless effort to improve the quality of education for our students. Teachers from different levels or departments come together to interpret and adapt existing curriculum to develop programmes and learning strategies targeted at responds to our students’ educational needs and interests.
