As part of this, we launched a new platform that focuses on helping educators on incorporating technology into their lessons.
The launch of this platform comes at a very exciting time since recently the Minister for Education Ong Ye Kung has announced that by 2024, all Secondary 1 students will own a school-prescribed personal learning device under a new national digital literacy programme. Moreover, by 2028, all secondary school students will be equipped with a device, he noted.
The Singapore Education system will need to innovate and incorporate technology into the lesson plans and our new platform will help empower educators.
iPad for Learning is an online professional learning community designed for educators to get lesson ideas that meaningfully integrate the use of SLS with powerful learning tools on iPad, share their own best practices and positive impact of teaching and learning in an iPad learning environment.
iPad for Learning offers resources such as:
- Lesson ideas for different subjects
- Instructional videos for home-based learning
- SLS design maps
- Sharing of lesson plans and best case practices by other educators
In addition, we can also conduct workshops to help educators develop proficiency in the features of how to incorporate technology into their classroom, and with confidence create content using Apple Creative tools.
Make The Change mission is to Empower and Transform Communities throw Design and this new initiative will help educators to empower and transform their students and school learning environment.
We would like to encourage all educators to join our community and start planning on how to incorporate technology into the learning environment.
