Infocomm Technology

The ICT Department performs the role of a supporting entity to the other Departments in the school. The Department aims to update the staff and pupils in technological advances and brings in suitable technology at the appropriate time to infuse ICT skills and tools. In preparation for year 2017, baseline standards are introduced to the pupils at different stages, so that by the end of every Huaminite's primary education, they will be equipped with a variety of skills ready for the globalised world out there.

Activities in Infocomm Technology Department


Integrated Project Work (IPW)
All students from P1 to P6 are required to complete an integrated project work during the course of the year. The project work leverages on ICT tools and skills to enable students to consolidate their learning in the various IP subjects like English Language, Mathematics, Science and Mother Tongue Languages. It also promotes teamwork and camaraderie among the students as well as independent learning. In some levels, the results from the IPW will form part of the Continual Assessment Tests. This is in alignment with MOE’s direction of having more alternative assessment modes.

 e-Learning
All students from P1 to P6 are given an account. With this, they are able to access the e-Learning platform subscribed by the school. Teachers make use of this e-Learning platform for frontal teaching as well as to assign self-paced lessons to students. Starting from 2008, all students have been able to access the poral via home. Log in via www.mconline.sg

ICT Integrated Programmes
All students are equipped with the ICT baseline standard skills through a series of comprehensive IT lesson plans designed by our in-house IT Trainer. These skills which are essential even in the workforce, are cleverly integrated into our subject curriculum to enhance the learning experience of each and every student of Huamin. Students who show an interest in ICT are also given the option to go through ICT Enrichment Programme to hone their ICT skills.

IPW
The ICT Integrated Project Work at Huamin involves students from all levels to work with one another on selected topics in the curriculum to create a final product leveraging on technology. This provides an authentic learning experience which requires both the students’ creativity and knowledge to help find a solution to the task given. In addition, Cyber Wellness is introduced through a more realistic manner and helps heighten students’ awareness of it. The finished products are then showcased in school at the annual i3-carnival where students from all classes will get to view all the products. Below is a list of IPW at the different levels.

E-Learning Week
E-Learning week was also extended to the P1 to P5 students during the four-day PSLE Marking Exercise. Students had to access their account in the Learning Management System to complete their e-assignments which their subject teachers had posted.

Free Access Area
Students are able to enter the Galaxy 1 to gain access into the Internet and the use of various software applications in the school. This allows our students to continue to practice and hone their IT skills after their ICT lessons during curriculum time. The students can also make use of the facilities to carry out their IPW on their own free time. This encourages them to be self-directed and independent learners at the same time.

A team took part in Media and Design Festival 2015 organized by N6 Cluster and they received Commendation Award in the video category. Students participated in various fun learning and team building activities with Infocomm Club students from other schools through games and IT-related activities.

 

Leveraging on ICT, the school embarked on an integrated curriculum to engage students in their subjects. English Language, Mathematics and Science syllabuses are pieced together to create exciting scenarios for students to select and create into an animation clip. Thus, not only allowing our students to acquire subject knowledge but also, more importantly, unleashing their potential to be creative and innovative.


Cyberwellness

Cyber Wellness

Cyber Wellness refers to the positive well-being of Internet users. It involves an understanding of online behaviour and awareness of how to protect oneself in cyberspace.

 

Huamin’s Cyber Wellness Framework


Huamin uses the Cyber Wellness Framework as a guide in planning and implementing our Cyber Wellness Programmes.

 

Principles

The two principles, “Respect for Self and Others” and “Safe and Responsible Use” when adhered to will anchor students’ well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered actions. This is aligned to Huamin’s school vlues, “Responsible and Respectful”.

 

Thinking Model

The process of Sense, Think and Act serves to highlight the stages that a student should undergo to prepare himself/herself to self-manage in cyberspace. The process could serve as a heuristic device to help teachers to organize lessons on Cyber Wellness topics.

 

Cyber Wellness in FTGP

The Cyber Wellness Curriculum focuses on the development of 21st century and social-emotional competencies in the use of ICT. Cyber Wellness lessons are delivered via Form Teacher Guidance Periods (FTGP).

 

Cyber Wellness in Huamin

As Cyber Wellness is a major concern in today’s society, the Cyber Wellness program in Huamin is deisgned to increase awareness in cyber safety amongst students, staff and parents. Besides learning about Cyber Wellness in FTGP, all students from Primary 1 to 6 go through one lesson of Cyber Wellness per term. The topics that will be covered are:

 

1.    Introduction of Cyber Wellness Framework and Key Messages

2.    Cyber Bullying

3.    Game Addiction

4.    Netiquette

 

Each class select two representatives to become Cyber Wellness Monitors. They are responsible in promoting Cyber Wellness tips to their peers during Cyber Wellness lessons as well as during morning assembly programs.

Storytelling Session by Dr Jill Biden wife of Vice President of USA

It was an adventure for the students as they interacted during the storytelling session with Dr Jill Biden. Dr Jill Biden also left the session giving an ever important message to the students to keep reading.
