Experimentation@Schools (ESP) focuses on pioneering innovative use of technology that supports Self Directed Learning (SDL) and Collaborative Learning (CoL).
It aims to seed and encourage ICT innovations between schools and industry in the use of ICT for Learning and Teaching.

Building SDL, CoL and 21st century competencies in our students
6Let’s take a look now at how some of our schools have integrated ICT and innovated on student-centric learning approaches to achieve the outcomes of self-directed and collaborative learning. In Innova Junior College, Economics students went on a learning trail around Marina Bay Financial District to deepen their understanding of concepts on scarcity and comparative advantage. With students setting their own and group learning goals, they understood clearly what they expected to gain from the experience. Equipped with mobile devices, they captured multiple aspects of their learning experience as they explored and referred to materials their teachers had uploaded via mobile apps. In addition, they actively supplemented this with information from the Internet to address gaps they identified in their learning. As they critically studied the landmarks, they translated learning concepts taught to their current situation. They reflected on their experiences and crystallized what they had learnt into a video that demonstrated the complexities of governance, scarcity and comparative advantage in Singapore’s context. Through this thoughtful and purposeful integration of ICT into the lesson, students developed their capacity for critical thinking, global awareness and civic literacy.
7Another example: To engage young learners in collaborative online learning, Nan Chiau Primary developed a student-friendly social networking portal to support project-based learning. Groups of students used the discussion forum to negotiate solutions to real-world problems. Taking on different expert roles to share findings with their classmates, they appreciated how different points of views helped clarify their understanding on issues. Students were encouraged to contribute to discussions whenever ideas presented themselves through accessing the portal on their mobile devices. With this connectivity, they could mull over at their own pace or jump into the discussion at any point to build on each other’s ideas anywhere, anytime. The lesson became a quest to achieve a shared group goal with every member’s ideas and opinions being valued. As they actively questioned, argued, defended, evaluated, they were fully engaged in building new knowledge in their communities. In addition, they learnt how to manage relationships and develop their information literacy and communication skills.

Key Trends
Significant Challenges
The abundance of resources and relationships made easily accessible via the Internet is
challenging us to revisit our roles as educators.

As the cost oftechnology drops and school districts revise and open up their access policies, it is
becoming more common for students to bring their own mobile devices

Customized learning is increasingly a goal for schools.

Education paradigms are shifting to include online learning, hybrid learning, and collaborative

The focus of assessments is shifting from "what you know" to "what you can do." R

Openness — concepts like open content, open data, and open resources, along with notions of
transparency and easy access to data and information — is becoming a value.A

People expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want. T

Schools are beginning to move away from textbooks to web resources and open source books.

Social media is changing the way people interact, present ideas and information, and
communicate. M

There is a new emphasis in the classroom on more challenge based, active learning.

The demand for personalized learning is not adequately supported by current technology or

Divides persist.

Faculty training still does not acknowledge the fact that digital media literacy continues its rise
in importance as a key skill in every discipline and profession.D

Innovating pedagogy is a complex process that requires research into impacts, responsive state
of mind to technology changes, and understanding what pedagogical strategies can make
innovation in pedagogy possible.

K-12 must address the increased blending of formal and informal learning. T

Many activities related to learning and education take place outside the walls of the classroom
and thus are not part of traditional learning metrics. S

New models of education are bringing unprecedented competition to the traditional models of
education. [MOOC?]

Ongoing professional development needs to be valued and integrated into the culture of the

We are not using digital media for formative assessment the way we could and should.

The latest edition of the annual Internet Trends report finds continued robust online growth. There are now 2.4 billion Internet users around the world, and the total continues to grow apace. Mobile usage is expanding rapidly, while the mobile advertising opportunity remains largely untapped. The report reviews the shifting online landscape, which has become more social and content rich, with expanded use of photos, video and audio. Looking ahead, the report finds early signs of growth for wearable computing devices, like glasses, connected wrist bands and watches - and the emergence of connected cars, drones and other new platforms.
