Vision & Goals
At Punggol Primary School, we believe in helping every child find joy in learning and using technology to empower our children to learn better.
The Student Learning Space is an important platform where our teachers design ICT-integrated lessons that are anchored in the Active Learning Process and supported by the affordances of suitable technological tools.
The various departments also tap on games-based applications that supports self-directed learning in a fun manner where students learn through playing games while having their progress reported in a leadership board. Additionally, students also learn in a meaningful manner where they get to develop and practice communication skills authentically through immersive learning stories via web-based applications.
The ICT department strives to facilitate quality teaching and learning with technology as the key enabler. To that end, we are committed to supporting our teachers to develop their capacities in designing ICT-enriched lessons through targeted professional development sessions and resource sharing. Our ICT department website will be the one-stop platform that will house all useful sharing, resources and information for our teachers to tap on.

Programmes & Activities
ICT literacy programme 6-year plan
In the new media ecology, it is acknowledged that people are literate in different ways. In the digital networked environment, students are considered literate if they are able to curate digital content, connect and communicate digitally and create digital multimodal products across a range of digital media platforms, while taking into consideration ethical and social practices embedded in learning and daily life.
Our school has revised our ICT literacy programme to better align our programme with MOE new media literacy. The new programme are built on the current set of standards, with a focus on the acquisition and application of technical skills to support the creation of digital content and various modes of interaction. The standards were revised to include the knowledge and skills to search for and evaluate digital information, use information ethically to create or remix digital artefacts; exchange information and contribute productively in an online community.

ICT Leadership Training
Representatives from each class went through training before they became full-fledged ICT leaders. During the training, they were taught ICT skills required for them to assist in the operation of IT equipment in classrooms. With the necessary knowledge and right values, they will definitely shine as STAR leaders in their classes.
