Singapore schools, Computer Labs are an extension of students’ academic
and classroom learning, where Applied Learning becomes a reality –
actualised from didactic teaching and learning. Students have been
exposed since their early childhood days to IT infrastructure, and our
students must continue to reap the benefits of an IT education (with ready
infrastructure) such that when they go on to their next level of education
or career, they must be IT-ready, IT-proficient
and if achievable (and ideally), IT-masterful.
- In Hai
Sing Catholic School, Computer Labs have been used for Learning Journeys,
Instructional Programs (such as Humanities, Science, Mathematics, Art, Mother
Tongue and English) coupled with technical subjects such as Computer
Applications and Elements of Business Studies. Students go on the
Internet for online lessons, social media interaction, online surveys and
flipped learning. Learning management systems (LMS) and Home Based
Learning (HBL) are also regular features for the students here.
can control what students see on screen such as the use of Lanschool to
