Presentation: The FS@SG Learning Journey: The SST Approach.

Presented by: Chan Kin Chuah, Loh Kwai Yin
Time: 1330-1425

In SST, the concept of the FS@SG programme goes beyond research initiatives anchored in the four subject disciplines and application development. It is about creating a culture and building an ecosystem that is conducive and ‘natural’ to our 21st century learners through the applied learning approach and by leveraging on the affordances of today-and-tomorrow’s technologies. Staff capacity is one of the key enablers, coupled with strategic partnerships.

In this presentation, we will share with you how we approach the FS@SG concept and some learning points gleaned through our implementation.

Presentation: CN-ECT for Mathematics – Fostering Critical Thinking Skills in a Networked Collaborative Environment.

Presented by: Nur Johari Bin Salleh, Thomas Yeo Chean Hiang
Session 1: 1030-1125
Session 3: 1330-1425

“CN-ECT for Mathematics” is one of the 4 research initiatives that SST embarks for the FS@SG programme. Classroom Networks - Educational Collaboration Technology for Mathematics focuses on fostering critical thinking and deepening conceptual understanding of mathematics topics supported by highly collaborative technologies. This aligns with the school’s vision to develop students to become “creative thinkers and Innovators” who are “collaborative and independent problems solvers”. In addition, this research initiative will study how to engender long term pedagogical change in teacher practice by considering the structure of the classroom, including curricular resources, professional development and assessments, which is a sustainable approach to innovations.

This presentation focuses on the pedagogical approaches as well as the supporting asynchronous environment to support students learning in a Maths classroom. Through the demonstration, participants will get to learn how the pedagogy is weaved into the activities in the collaborative networked environment.

Presentation: Fostering Critical Thinking Skills and In-situ Knowledge Building through Mobile Learning

Presented by: James Koh Peng Huat, Aurelius Yeo, Evelyn Teo Yi Leng, Kassandra Lim Lay Han
Session 2: 1130-1230
Session 4: 1430-1525

This project is one of the 4 research initiatives that SST embarks for the FS@SG programme. It aims to examine the affordances of 1-to-1 mobile technologies that support and enable pervasive knowledge building beyond the four walls of the classroom.

The advent and advances of mobile computing and social networking have made possible the continuity of the learning experience and collaboration across different contexts on a seamless learning platform. Thus, the design of learning scenarios to help students develop critical thinking and collaborative meaning-making skills forms one of the fundamental objectives of this research project.

Research has been conducted on learning activities that use mobile technologies to reinforce learning by bridging the gap between theory and the real world observation; where students are able to directly and physically explore our world for in-situ knowledge building.

Through the demonstration and hands-on with the mobile learning platform developed, participants will get to experience how the lesson unfolds through three stages. We would also share with you findings from implementations carried out to-date.
