News & Updates from NCPS ICT Department

Term 2, 2016

ICT in Learning:

Here are updates from the various departments:


Applied Learning & English

Primary 1 to Primary 3 students were taught how to use the Moo-O software that allows them to create immersive digital stories. They were then tasked to record their digital stories during AL lessons. English teachers also shared tips with the students on elements of a good digital story.

ICT in Teaching:

Nearpod

Teachers were introduced to the Nearpod application which allows them to create and customize interactive mobile presentations. Other benefits include being able to share the interactive lessons with others, and being able to control students’ activity in real time. The application is also versatile and allows students to interact and submit responses via any mobile phone or PC. Teachers are also able to monitor students’ results both individually and on an aggregate basis.
