In this 21st century, digital learners are well-equipped with basic knowledge in navigating the cyber world. Educators play an important role in facilitating students in their learning. With innovative lessons that are designed to leverage on ICT affordances, teachers engage these new-age learners when delivering these ICT-enriched lessons. Such learning experiences and exposure put our students in good stead for the ICT challenges of tomorrow.

At iCTLT 2014, North Spring Primary School shared with fellow educators on 'ICT Mentoring Programme @ NSPS: A Multiplier-Effect Approach'. Sustainability and scalability of this unique approach is key in leading our school into the next phase of professional development.

With knowledge of TPACK at our fingertips, ICT mentors and mentees in our school have progressed to tap on ICT affordances to transform the learning environment. The planning of lesson studies, modular programmes and holistic assessment inspire our teachers to continuously research into ICT-enabled learning and practices. With customized and professional learning time dedicated to the discussion of student-centric learning and integration of ICT in curriculum and assessment, self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) have flourished. As champions of effective use of technology in teaching and learning, ICT mentors lead in the exploration of ICT approaches and tools across all subject areas. Across all levels in the school, teachers pilot the use of age-appropriate ICT affordances in enhancing students' learning experiences. With theory and practice in place, teachers’ confidence and competencies have reached greater heights. In addition, qualitative and quantitative data are gathered and assessment for learning allow teachers to better understand their students’ learning needs and improve on pedagogies.

The school's culture of innovation and excellence is exemplified through teachers' unwavering determination in integrating various ICT affordances to create a wholesome learning environment. The sharing culture also encourages teachers to learn from one another as they fine-tune lessons and continually find ways to enhance ICT-enriched lessons in a bid to meet students’ needs. In line with this integration, ICT is also infused across departments in terms of programmes. Partnership with stakeholders also plays an important role in the extension of learning beyond school. At this sharing, North Spring Primary School aims to share how the pervasive use of ICT in school is supported and sustained.
