TE:D Learning Programme

TE:D Learning Programme

Technology Enabled (TE:D) learning programme is an initiative by the school to change the way we teach and learn. We view this as an important step forward to bring about greater engagement in learning and prepare our students for a future where technology will become even more pervasive in their lives than it already is today.  TE:D will require students to bring their own personal device which they will use at school and home, allowing learning to transit smoothly between home and school.

Using technology in the classroom is not only about the introduction of devices to make lessons interesting and engaging. It is about the mindful design of lessons where technology is used as an effective tool to activate learners' curiosity and imagination, promote thinking and discussions as well as to allow students to demonstrate their application of learning. It not only facilitates greater interaction between students and teachers but also students with students.

Through TE:D, teachers will be able to design lessons using embedded formative assessment strategies. They will be able to assess students' learning, provide timely feedback and facilitate intervention for learning. This is aimed at providing individualised attention for students in a large classroom setting.

In addition, with the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) introduction of the Student Learning Space (SLS) for every student enrolled in our Singapore schools, students now have greater access to high quality digital content that is aligned to our national curriculum.  Students can learn at their own pace, revisit concepts and read up on other areas of interest promoting self-directed learning. TE:D will leverage SLS to enhance teaching and learning.


Screenguide by Mosyle

Farrer Park Primary School incorporated Mobile Device Management software, Mosyle, to manage our students’ iPad learning device usage as well as screen time. This powerful software allow school and parents to monitor and manage the child’s device remotely.

For Parents

Management of Learning Devices

To work in partnership with our parents, Farrer Park Primary School has two options for the management of learning devices for the TE:D programme.


Option 1: Management in Partnership

  • School-managed  on Weekdays from 7.00am to 4.00pm

  • Parent-managed with Screenguide at other times.


Option 2: School-Managed only

Weekdays

  • 7.00am to 5.00pm (open)

  • Other times locked.

Weekends

  • 9.00am to 12.00pm (open)

  • 2.00pm to 5.00pm (open)

  • Other times locked.


In both Option 1 and 2, the school will ensure that the apps needed for learning in the classroom are installed and updated.


To ensure that our students have a good balance of screen time and rest, option 2 allows our students access to their learning devices after school till 5.00pm as well as two three-hour blocks on weekends in the morning and afternoon.


In order to maximise the potential of their learning devices, we highly recommend that our parents choose option 1, which will allow us to work in partnership to develop good learning device habits in our children both in school and at home.


To activate option 1, parents only need to activate the Screenguide app for monitoring and control of their child’s iPad. All learning devices that have not yet had Screenguide activated will be placed on option 2 by default.
