We are going to share how the School of Science and Technology, Singapore (SST) leverages on its 1-to-1 ICT-enabled programme to incorporate student-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) in its design of the home-based learning experience for the digital natives during its eLearning week.
It highlights SST's belief that the learning experience of our digital natives should be natural (to them) and seamless; learning can take place anytime, anywhere. Home-based learning is no longer confined to just attempting tasks in the a 'confined' virtual environment where learners only 'interact' with computer or the learning management system.
We would share our approach, what we take into consideration when designing such experience. This includes learners' readiness and prior experience, teacher professional development and technology to be deployed (to support SDL and CoL). In addition, how the activity supports the learning objectives of the curriculum.
This would be illustrated through several lessons implemented. We would also share our learning points, students' feedback and challenges.
