ICT Department Vision
Future-Ready, Responsible Digital Learners
ICT Department Mission
To engage and empower students in using ICT Productively for quality learning to prepare confident, future-ready learners
We aim to:
- Strengthen competencies for self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) by using ICT appropriately
- equip students with the ability to discriminate the vast information that can be found online
- Tailor learning experiences according to the way that each student learns best
- Encourage students to go deeper and advance their learning with technology
- Help students 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 student 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 students 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 students’ well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.

Baseline ICT Skills
We use a set of baseline ICT standards which consists 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, Mother Tongue and Science to ensure that no student is left behind in terms of their ability to benefit from an ICT-enabled learning environment.
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.
