ICT BASELINE SKILLS
The fourth Masterplan for ICT in Education (mp4) continues to build on the achievements of the first three Masterplans, and broadens the focus beyond Self-Directed Learning and Collaborative Learning to the Total Curriculum. In mp4, ICT is used productively to develop knowledge through subject mastery, skills through 21st Century Competencies, and attitudes through responsible digital citizenry. mp4 is also aligned to MOE’s direction towards student-centric and values-driven education.
To achieve this, the Baseline ICT standards for pupils for the forth Masterplan for ICT in Education continues to ensure that all pupils acquire the necessary ICT skills to support them in learning and prepare them for future needs. At the end of the Primary education, pupils will be able to:
- Conduct internet searches and organise the digital information for ease of retrieval, while recognising regulations governing the use of digital information
- Verify the accuracy, credibility and currency of a piece of information
- Select and put together different media elements to construct a digital artifact, while making informed choices with regard to how to use information ethically
- Exchange digital information with others synchronously and asynchronously, while observing proper etiquette
- Manage digital footprint he/she makes when sharing information online
INTEGRATION OF ICT SKILLS INTO SCHOOL CURRICULUM
In De La Salle School, these ICT skills are taught to our Lasallians over a span of their 6 years of education. The teaching of these ICT skills to our Lasallians are not taught in isolation based solely on ICT Skills but are actually infused into the school curriculum and learning activities.
A summary of ICT applications used by our Lasallians in school to learn these ICT skills are as follows:
Usage of user id and password
Logging into computing devices
Logging into SS
Navigating User Interface of Microsoft Word
Primary 5 & Primary 6
Collaborative Learning using Students' Learning Space (SLS)
Usage of ipads to create digital music (Garage Band)
Students learning space @DLSS (Updates in progress)
Learning today has no boundaries and is no longer limited within the four walls of a traditional classroom setting. Our Lasallians, who are the digital natives of today are also naturally comfortable and adaptable when using technology. In a 2014 survey held in our school, it was found that 95% of our Lasallians are equipped with at least a computer and Internet access at home.
These are favorable factors which De La Salle School has tapped on to add value and support the learning of our Lasallians.
Students Learning Space (Updates in progress)
The Students Learning Space was introduced to the school in 2018.
By end of year 2018, majority of the student have logged into the Students Learning Space.
With rapid advancement of technology and increased Internet connectivity, our Lasallians are getting much exposure to both the good and bad in cyberspace. Thus it is important that we equip our Lasallians with the necessary skills to manage themselves in cyberspace. A cyber wellness programme is thus necessary.
MOE has provided schools with various resources to support in their implementation of a cyber wellness programme. In De La Salle School, the main platform for the delivery of the lessons is via Form Teacher Guidance Period. The MOE Sexuality Education, The Growing Years package also has Cyber Wellness-related contexts where relevant.
The school also encourages the Primary 4 Lasallians to take part in the Junior Cyber Wellness Achiever Award. This is an activity dedicated to help the Primary 4 Lasallians learn about having fun online and still keep healthy. The aim here is to educate them on what they might face out on the internet. Participants of the programme will learn, among other things, about creating strong passwords and protecting their personal information and computers.
