Information Communication Technologies (ICT) is a supporting platform which all departments ride on to provide a holistic education to the pupils in Pei Chun Public School. The department aims to create an ICT-enriched environment for pupils develop higher-order and interdependent thinking skills through ICT integrated lessons. This is done through integration of ICT into the curriculum, leverage on online ICT resources, a progressive programme for baseline skills and our cyber wellness programme. The department also supports our school key signature programmes such as the Bilingual Media Studies Programme (BMSP) which distinctively leverage learning on the use of ICT, integrating technology and innovation skills.
Integration of ICT into the Curriculum Each department integrate the ICT skills into its curriculum so that learning is made more effective, engaging and interesting for our pupils. Through this integration, opportunities are provided to enrich pupils’ learning, communication and problem solving skills through the effective use of technology.
Online ICT Resources
The school leverages on Student Learning Space (SLS) and subscription-based LMS to make learning more accessible to parents and pupils. Through the use of SLS and LMS portal, learning is more engaging and it enables pupils to carry out independent learning beyond school hours.
The Baseline ICT Standards is a set of ICT skill competencies set out for pupils to learn in progressive stages. These represent the basic level of knowledge, skills and values that pupils need in order to fully benefit from a curriculum enriched with ICT, and eventually thrive in a technology-driven society. Pupils are given the opportunties to use both the IPad and PC platforms when they attend lessons at the computer labs. The programme is progressive in nature with the P1 learning touch-typing and gradually move on to the use of data collection, communication and media tools.
While encouraging our pupils to be technologically savvy, we also recognise the importance of educating our pupils to be discerning and responsible ICT users. Our programme aims to inculcate important cyber wellness principles in our pupils through topics like addiction on games, copyright issues, cyber bullying, dangers with cyber contacts, handling inappropriate content and netiquette. These topics are integrated into ICT lessons at different levels, assembly talks, interactive drama and Cyber wellness quizzes etc.
The assessment is in the form of the end products produced by the pupils in the course of the integrated ICT lessons. These end products are a measure of ICT competencies the pupils have achieved. With the completion of the end products, the pupils will be able to move to the next level of skills.
