Focus of ICT use in schools

should be on meaningful
learning: Educators
SINGAPORE The proliferation of social media and technology has
transformed the way educators teach: Mobile phones and tablets, once
banned in some classrooms, are now an integral part of students
Equipped with the latest apps and websites, teachers are increasingly
using information and communication technology (ICT) to deepen
students learning and keep them actively engaged during lessons.
For example, Primary Three and Four students in Nan Chiau Primary use
Nokia smartphones and Microsoft Windows 8 tablets in class to access the
schools Science Seamless Learning project to continue learning even
after lessons end.
Ngee Ann Secondary is experimenting with 3D printing technology in
Design & Technology (D&T) classes. Its teachers also use Facebook to
generate ideas in class, an iPad app to produce digital music for music
lessons and rendering software for digital art classes.
But scratch beneath the surface and one will realise that the rate of
adoption of ICT is uneven across the schools here. For instance, at a small
number of schools that are more advanced in the use of high-tech
educational tools, students have personal learning devices. In contrast,
students in other schools still rely on shared facilities such as computer
labs for ICT-based lessons.
Since 1997, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has drawn up five-year
national blueprints for the use of ICT in the classroom. The first two
master-plans put in place the foundation for schools to integrate
technology into the curriculum.
Between 2009 and this year, MOE is implementing its third masterplan,
which seeks to translate familiarity with ICT into effective teaching. The
ministry is expected to unveil its fourth ICT masterplan later this year

Comparing Philippine schools with other progressive school they should
learn more or study more to have a better technology but in seeing now a
days Philippines is trying her/his best to be more high tech. By helping of
other country with us by communicating for there are able to produce
more technology that can easily use and more effective for the students.

Philippines can cope up by helping each other by communicating with the

other countries with this they can help us to make our country more high
tech and be more updated to the development of Ict in education.
