At Crescent, we have a tradition of seeking excellence in teaching and learning through innovation, one of the core drivers of a Crescentian education. Recognising the potential of a 1-to-1 computing experience and the unique possibilities Tablet PCs offer in 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 received overwhelming support from our students' parents.
Today, all 1170 students at Crescent Girls' School own a personal learning device (PLDs). Outfitted with the latest Microsoft products, Adobe Creative Suite, a wide range of education applications like HeuX and Trail Shuttle, and tools developed by our partners, students can harness technologies effectively to enhance their learning.
This is made possible through the effective integration of ICT into our curriculum, pedagogy and assessment, through uniquely designed lessons by our teachers. The design of ICT-enriched learning experiences provides opportunities for students to engage in collaborative learning, research, problem-solving and creative activities, thus helping them achieve their subject learning goals and acquire crucial 21st Century Competencies.
Tapping on the campus-wide wireless network, all staff and students are interconnected wirelessly, enabling greater collaboration and sharing. Onsite helpdesk is available for quick troubleshooting and repair of PLDs. Personal reinforced lockers in the classrooms also 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 using such technologies.
Through 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, the Ministry of Education selected Crescent Girls' School as one of the Backpack.NET schools. In 2006, Microsoft named the school 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.
Regionally and globally, Crescent Girls' School is also recognised for the use of technology in developing 21st Century learners. In 2011, the school was accorded the UNESCO-Intel Regional School Award – Gold. In 2012, the school was named a World Tour School by Microsoft during the global forum held in Prague.
