Good Practice - Adapting Practice Schools Learning Programme

About

The GP-AP Schools Learning Programme was developed to promote the diffusion and deepening of Good ICT practices through the adaptation of GP schools practices by AP schools. In this programme, 19 schools unified by common interest areas to enhance learning and teaching processes, formed 5 communities of practice (CoP)s. Each CoP promotes the use of ICT differently across various subject disciplines.


This symposium applauds the professional work of teachers in these schools as they contextualise, adapt and refine shared ICT practices into their own school's context. Let us take you on a GP-AP ride to experience:


  • the conversations that took place within and across schools in a CoP,
  • learning in an ICT-enriched environment to bring about the targeted subject discipline outcomes
  • the learning across schools resulting from the adaptation and localisation of practices

The GP-AP Experience

For a complete GP-AP experience, you will register for ONE experience, which will consist a lesson demonstration and sharing from schools from the same CoP.


Tea break will be served. Some food items will be vegetarian. All food served will be Halal.

EXPERIENCE 1: Exploring ICT for Learning through Inquiry in the Teaching of Geography

This CoP focuses on using technology to organise Geographical Inquiry in the classroom. The schools in the CoP leveraged ArcGIS Online into the Humanities Inquiry Process, specifically for the Gathering data and Exercising Reasoning. Other ICT tools such as Google Forms, Google Sites and features within LMS provide a space that captures students' ideas, thinking and discourse within groups.

EXPERIENCE 2: Exploring ICT for Learning through Inquiry in the Teaching of Secondary Chinese

The CoP focuses on using the ReACT (Redesign for Assessing Critical Thinking) system to organise inquiry by facilitating investigation, problem solving and helping to connect learners’ inquiries to real world scenarios. Schools in this CoP explore how ReACT can be leveraged to develop competencies that enhance reading and writing dispositions in Chinese Language.

EXPERIENCE 3: Exploring ICT for Learning through Inquiry in the Teaching of Physics

The CoP focuses on how technology supports the development of students scientific explanation in an inquiry-based learning environment. The schools in this CoP explore the use of various ICT tools within enhanced 5E models of guided scientific inquiry such as in authentic exploration, collaborative feedback on explanation and evaluation of scientific explanation.

EXPERIENCE 4: Exploring ICT for Learning with Others in the Teaching of Primary Science

The CoP focuses on how technology supports the development of students' Scientific explanation in a collaborative learning environment. The schools in this CoP explores how the use of various ICT tools for students to represent their ideas, compare perspectives through structured argumentation in order to reach a consensus as part of inquiry based learning in Science.

EXPERIENCE 5: Exploring ICT for Learning from Assessment in the Teaching of Primary Science

The CoP explores how ICT can enhance Assessment for Learning (AfL) practices in the teaching of Primary Science. Schools in this CoP design ICT-enhanced learning environments to provide opportunities for students to articulate and reflect on their own learning, i.e. making their thinking visible, which serves as data for them to provide feedback to enhance students’ learning and feed forward to enhance their own teaching.
