This e-poster documents a case study of ICT Good Practices @ Schools program, and captures the narrative in five stages namely (i) The Challenge, (ii) The Design, (iii) The Insights, (iv) The Re-designed, and (v) The Study.

In Singapore, there were various platforms for schools to share their approaches, strategies on ICT planning and implementation. However, the good practices shared may not be translated into their existing school practices, resulting unevenness of ICT practices at the ground level.

With this challenge, it prompts the conceptualization of Good Practice-Adapting Practice (GP-AP) Schools Learning Programme to help schools adapt and sustain good ICT practices. The design of the GP-AP Schools Learning program involves the following phases: (i) create knowledge – build community knowledge about the practice upon contextualisation, (ii) develop networks – form Communities of Practice (CoPs) across various subjects to explore ICT in common areas of focus, (iii) learn and develop practice – design, enactment and refinement of classroom experiences through action research, and (iv) take action as a community – engage in learning conversations with ETD, NIE and Schools to link theories to practice and promote evidence-based practices.

The evaluation of GP-AP Schools Learning Program was conducted through interviews and feedback from the school teams, NIE partners and ETOs supporting the school teams. These gave rise to insights on the need to provide differentiated support for teachers, and the importance of school leadership to sustain ICT practices.

With these insights, it prompted a re-designed frame to the GP-AP Schools Learning Program. Two new aspects i.e. empowered school team and sustainable ICT practices in MOE were introduced, giving rise to the re-designed program - ICT Good Practices @ Schools (iGPS). Such efforts will be captured through a study which aims to understand the teachers’ design process. It also aims to study the role of technology in deepening student learning.
