ICT infusion into learning journeys through the use of smart phone technology and broadband networks has helped to enhance students’ learning of the humanities in Learning Journeys. Supported by location-based mobile technology using Global Positioning System (GPS), Image recognition and Bluetooth Beacon Technology, students can benefit from authentic learning when educational content is effectively rendered on the mobile handsets at pre-determined location-of-interest.

In addition, CHIJ (Katong) Primary has observed that schools had embarked on mobile learning trails to engage their students. As such, the school assessed that mobile learning trails could be harnessed to engage their students. Taking a smaller student group to facilitator ratio approach, the trail would allow students to collaborate and learn more from each other. Bearing these in mind, CHIJ (Katong) Primary embarked on engaging LDR run CHIJ’s first mobile learning trail, the interactive Heritage trails (iHTs) to Little India. CHIJ (Katong) Primary chose the Little India Heritage trail as it was in alignment with the Social Studies lessons and the prescribed workbook activities.

With students learning timely content onsite, and at their own pace, the iHT is a platform to afford the drive towards promoting self-directed learning in the students. The contents provided include information (facts, images and videos), questions and mobile games like word puzzles. The mobile platform allows the teachers to track and analyse the students’ learning through the students’ answers to the online quizzes.

On top of the learning afforded by iHTs, CHIJ (Katong) Primary linked the mobile learning experiences with the activity in the 5B Activity Book which required the students to design an outfit based on what they have learnt. Students were given more information in order to help them complete the activities in the workbook.
