m-Learning@Crescent

Crescent Girls' School has a tradition of seeking excellence in teaching and learning, with the spirit of innovation as one of the main drivers.  Recognising the potential of a 1-to-1 computing experience and the unique features of Tablet PCs providing a richer teaching and learning experience, Crescent Girls’ School embarked on m-Learning@Crescent in 2004. Although it is an opt-in project offered to every batch of new Secondary One students, it has been receiving overwhelming support from all the parents.

Today, all 1170 students at Crescent Girls’ School own a personal learning device (PLDs).  Outfitted with the latest Microsoft products, Adobe Creative Suite as well as a wide range of education applications like HeuX and Trail Shuttle and tools developed by our partners, students are able to harness technologies effectively to enhance their learning.

This can only materialise because teachers design lessons that integrate ICT effectively into curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. The design of ICT enriched learning experiences provides opportunities for students to engage in collaborative learning, research, problem-solving and creation activities, thus helping them to acquire the subject learning goals and 21st Century Competencies.

Tapping on the campus-wide wireless network, all staff and students are interconnected wirelessly for greater collaboration and sharing.  Onsite helpdesk is available for quick troubleshooting and repair of PLDs. Personal reinforced lockers are also provided in the classrooms to provide security for PLDs.

All Secondary One and Two students at Crescent Girls’ School go through the Lower Secondary Computer Education Programme (LSCEP) to hone their ICT skills.  A structured Cyber Wellness programme is also put in place to ensure that students have the correct attitude and mindset towards the use of technologies.

During its journey as one of the pioneering schools in harnessing ICT for teaching and learning, Crescent Girls’ School has been awarded various accolades.  In 2004, Ministry of Education selected Crescent Girls’ School as one of the Backpack.NET schools.  In 2006, Microsoft named the school as one of its Mentor Schools under its worldwide Partners in Learning programme.  In 2007, Crescent Girls’ School was named by the Ministry of Education as a pioneer FutureSchools@Singapore.
