ICT Department Vision
Future-Ready, Responsible Digital Learners
ICT Department Mission
To engage and empower pupils in using ICT Productively for quality learning to prepare confident, future-ready learners
- Strengthen competencies for self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) by using ICT appropriately to equip pupils with the ability to discriminate the vast information that can be found online
- Tailor learning experiences according to the way that each pupil learns best
- Encourage pupils to go deeper and advance their learning with technology
- Learn anywhere with ICT
Students will also be given opportunities to learn and apply safe and responsible online behaviours through value-laden programmes designed to equip every pupil with basic ICT skills.
We have a core set of subject-specific ICT-enriched learning experience defined and embedded into the various syllabuses. These ICT-enriched learning experiences spread out across the levels as well as running through various subjects. At each stage of the intervening years, our teachers design and review lessons constantly to look into ways in allowing our pupils to learn ICT skills and tools effectively.
The school also has a Cyber Wellness Framework that rests on two key principles, “Respect for Self and Others” and “Safe and Responsible Use”. This will anchor pupils’ well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.

Baseline ICT Skills
The school has a set of baseline ICT standards which consist of core ICT skills that are essential to support engaged learning by students and to prepare them for the future.
The baseline standards will be integrated into core subjects such as English, Maths and Science to ensure that no student is left behind in terms of their ability to benefit from an ICT-enabled learning environment.
Learning Management System Portal (www.mconline.sg)
We strongly encourage students to tap on the Learning Management System (www.mconline.sg) to reinforce their learning at home. This allows the students to access a repository of multimedia educational content and resources to be engaged in self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL).
The availability of computing devices and internet access at home will enable our students to enjoy learning anytime, anywhere and even provide opportunities for meaningful online collaboration to consolidate and share what they have learnt with their peers.
The NEU PC Plus Programme by Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) offers students from low income households the opportunity to own a computer at affordable price. Please call 6684 8858 for enquiries.

P4 and P5 Code for Fun Programme (Intermediate)
To allow our students to experience the joy of learning, the P4 and P5 students will have another 10 hours of Code for Fun session to build on their problem solving skills and critical thinking skills. They get to unleash their creativity as they explore ways to make their Moway robot move according to the codes they have sequenced and strung together. During the process, the students will get to collaborate in teams as they plan and string the codes, analyse and debug the code whenever there are errors in the code they have written. Through this learning experience, the students will learn that making mistakes is part and parcel of learning and perseverance is the key to success!
