Years 7 to 10 students from Chung Hwa Middle School (CHMS) attended digital learning sessions at the school premises from November 16 to 18 aimed at enhancing learning and teaching through the use of digital technology.
Wakelet and Flipgrid were introduced to the students, including ways of integrating and streamlining learning experiences into curated collections that can be used to demonstrate mastery of the teacher-set learning objectives and other important skills.
They also shared their views using Flipgrid.
Principal Kho Guik Lan said, “It is essential to impart technological knowledge to students to ensure they can cope with the digital revolution. By keeping abreast with technological advancements, students are able to develop problem-solving skills and critical thinking.
“Acquiring new skills equips them with a developmental mindset, improving their learning agility. Continuous learning is also a vital component in keeping up with the world of innovative teaching and learning. Thus, it is important that they learn and develop new skills.”
