Teachers Visitation to Apple Distinguised Schools in Singapore

A group of 22 teachers from two campuses (Tanjung Duren and Kelapa Gading) had the opportunity to visit three Apple Distinguised Schools in Singapore last February 8-9, 2018. The schools were Nanyang Girls’ High School, Canberra Primary School, and School of Science and Technology. The schools have been using iPads for six (6) years. During the two-day visit, we had the chance to observe classes, mingle with the students and the teachers, and familiarise ourselves with the specifications and advantages of a powerful and versatile gadget that will change the face of education in our school from the next school year – the iPad.

We visited Nanyang Girls’ High School on our first day and in the afternoon we ventured to the Apple Headquarter.On Day 2 was a visit to a government primary school, Canberra Primary School and in the afternoon we stepped it up a notch and visited the government-run school, the School of Science and Technology. Here we were astounded to see students developing their own apps.The school has been using the apps that their students have developed such as apps to take attendance and participation as well as share interactive presentations or  information regarding the school. It is obvious that these students have a great love for technology.

The incoming  Grade 7 will be required to start using ipad in this academic year. By the time these students reach Grade 12, then the whole school will be utilising this technology. The school believes that the use of iPad in the classroom enables endless learning possibilities. iPad in the classroom brings education to life.

We live in a technological age, where students and teachers should be using modern technology in both teaching and learning. Becoming proficient in the use of technology  at a younger age will prepare students for future careers. In order to adequately prepare this generation for their future, the use of technology is vital. Moreover, we will find students more engaged with their schoolwork when using iPads. It will be like carrying a portable computer with them everywhere, allowing them to use so many useful apps in their learning. These apps enhanced learning in reading, writing, research, media production, video instruction  and so on.

We, the teachers are excited with the prospect of this technology which will give us even more tools to educate your children. Onward we go into the future! We sincerely look forward to having you on board with us in the direction we are heading.
