Mobilizing for Student-directed learning

Crescent Girls‘ School, a 1400-student school located in the heart of Singapore, is used to being at the vanguard of learning technologies. For more than a decade, it has embraced technology-driven classroom learning, including the introduction in 2004 of a broad online education policy called ‘m-Learning‘ that was based on giving students access to convertible tablet PCs based on Intel® mobile technology.

“One-to-one computing was a fairly new concept at the time,“ said Mrs Tan Chen Kee, Principal, Crescent Girls‘ School. “But we recognized that tried and tested approaches weren‘t effective in engaging a new generation of students. We saw technology as a key enabler in engaging them, and starting exploring how we could better leverage technology to bring about a more engaging instructional program.“
