Inquiry-based Science Learning with Digital Tools
Limited Capacity filling up

Secondary school Physics students find learning of physics concepts, especially abstract physical phenomena, challenging. Students have to process new information and understandings in descriptive form and to relate them to equations while using a range of symbolisms to represent what they understood. In Yishun Secondary School, a team of teachers identified Electromagnetism as a challenging topic due to its less intuitive and abstract nature as compared to other O-level Physics topics.

A systematic approach based on 5E Instructional Model facilitated by technology is used to teach and learn the electromagnetic concepts. Students are empowered to visualise concepts and co-construct conceptual knowledge to deepen their learning through meaningful scientific inquiry activities. In this aspect, the learning of concepts is an active process. The technology-enabled learning environment is versatile enough to support a variety of teaching strategies and learning experiences for both self-directed and collaborative learners with teacher facilitation.
Through various activities, students visualised and explained the interaction of 'Force', 'Magnetic Field' and 'Current' in Electromagnetism. Preliminary observations showed that the questioning pedagogy were effective in raising students’ curiosity and motivating students’ questioning to resolve misconceptions and to extend learning. The use of ICT tools such as Google Apps (e.g. Google forms) and other web 2.0 tools made students thinking visible, and provided the teacher with feedback and insights into students' thinking and conceptual understanding. Analysis of both formative assessment data also indicated positive impact on students’ learning outcomes.
Participants would benefit from the sharing of the increase understanding of the role of teacher as a designer of learning experiences and environments and how the technology enabled inquiry based learning enhances teaching practice and development of pedagogical-content knowledge, as well as develop 21st century competencies. Findings from this study would be discussed with recommendations for incorporation of more interactive web 2.0 tools, development of teacher facilitation skills and enhancement of effective assessment for self-directed and collaborative learning.

Effective Assessment for Learning in Lesson Presentations
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Frontal teaching (also known as “Chalk and Talk”) has become a "dirty" word as educators are urged by experts to move away from traditional classroom practices towards student-centred learning activities. As much as we try to avoid it, making lesson presentations is still inevitable, particularly for content heavy subjects.

When we have to make a lesson presentation, how do we hold the students’ attention and increase their engagement? How do we check that the students have learned?

When we ask a question, how do we get every student to respond? How do we check in an instant, a full class of students for their understanding?

This "hands-on" session will cover how we could transform our lesson presentations into an engaging and interactive learning experience that is centred on the students. We will explore the use of AfL tools such as Pear Deck and Formative, and discover how we could dovetail thinking questions so as to increase engagement of the students and ensure learning takes place. (Both Pear Deck and Formative work seamlessly with Google Suite). Besides the tools, this session focuses on the application of AfL principles and feedback strategies for effective teaching and learning.

A Live demonstration shall be conducted to allow participants to experience first-hand, the unique features of Pear Deck and Formative, both of which are exceptional for the purpose of presentation and assessment for learning. Participants are encouraged to have a laptop or smart mobile device for this session.

Flipping the paradigm of learning with Flipped Team-Based Learning Chromebook Classroom
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Funded by Edulab, Flipped Team-Based Learning (Flipped-TBL) is a technology-enabled pedagogical approach that aims to provide opportunities for students to engage in higher-order thinking activities. Through Flipped-TBL, students will also acquire essential 21st Century Competencies such as Self-Directed Learning (SDL) and Collaborative Learning (CoL).

The approach combines the merits of the “Flipped Classroom” and “Team-Based Learning Model”. A Flipped Classroom provides students with the autonomy in learning and enhances SDL. The TBL model, a special form of collaborative learning structure using a specific sequence of individual work, group work and immediate feedback to create a motivational framework, promotes CoL.

Empowered by the technological affordances in a 1:1 Chromebook Classroom, students co-construct knowledge, demonstrate their learning, and solve relevant and significant problems as they progress through the Flipped-TBL with Google applications.

Through this ICT-enabled pedagogy, the school witnessed a shift in the teacher’s mindset – from a high need to maintain control in the classroom to a greater acceptance of organic learning through collaborative learning. The teacher’s role also evolved from deliverer of content to designer of the overall instructional process. Meanwhile, the student’s role shift from being passive recipients of information to one of active learners, taking charge of their learning. They experienced personal fulfillment and the joy of learning as they immerse themselves in the process of creation to acquire new knowledge and skills.

Through the workshop, participants will have first-hand experience on the Flipped TBL model and how they can promote HOT and 21st Century Competencies in a 1:1 Chromebook Classroom with Google Applications For Educations.

Integration of ICT in Sonic Arts ALP (Music, Media and Technology)
Limited Capacity seats available

Synopsis
The Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in Sonic Arts (Music, Media and Technology) at Yishun Secondary School (YSS) enables students to experience and develop contemporary music making practices in an authentic learning environment. The iPad Band and Keyboard modules are two of four modules created by the teachers of YSS. All lower secondary students undertake the modules during their weekly music lesson. This session takes participants through the use of ICT for assessment of learning in the iPad Band module and the non-formal teaching approach through the use of YouTube in the Keyboard module to bring about responsible digital learners and desired 21st century competencies such as being self-directed learners and active contributors. A survey of students music profile is conducted to understand the music background and interests of our students. This data allows teachers to craft curriculum that is relevant. Participants will take away ideas of how they could adapt these strategies in their classrooms.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will gain an overview of the ALP in Sonic Arts at YSS.
Participants will learn how data collated through Google Forms allows teachers to craft curriculum.
Through samples of students work, participants will learn how the recording tools in GarageBand allows students to assess their learning.
Participants will learn how students learn informally through YouTube provides students with opportunities to be self-directed learners.
Background/Context:
In recent years, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has placed importance on a Student-Centric, Values-Driven education. The ALP serves to connect academic knowledge and skills with the real world. Its emphasis is on the application of thinking skills, stretching the imagination and applying these in authentic settings in society and industries. Besides offering students with more opportunities to learn in accordance with their interests, the ALP also helps our students deepen their 21st century competencies to equip them for a lifelong journey of learning. (MOE, 2013)

In the 21st Century, music is no longer limited to the confinements of a physical instrument and the concert hall. Sonic Arts is an interdisciplinary field that encompasses music technology, music composition, sound design and recording arts. The advent, accessibility and advancement of technology have seen musicians branching into previously hitherto careers such as music producers, sound engineers and film music composers. The modules that students undertake in the ALP for Sonic Arts equip them with the basic skills of music technology. These skills will lay the foundation for students’ aspirations to study Sonic Arts at the tertiary level and encourage them to pursue a career in this field.

Sonic Arts Framework

The ALP in Sonic Arts curriculum is based on the LCAP (Learners, Curriculum, Assessment, Pedagogy) model and we aim to provide our students with the opportunities to:

Experience and develop competencies in contemporary music making practices.
Develop life skills through challenging and engaging music making activities in an authentic learning environment
Understand and appreciate contemporary music across a range of genres and contexts which will help students become informed and forward-looking music audience and practitioners.

We are also guided by the 3Es approach when we plan our curriculum:

“EXPERIENCE for all” - Students are given opportunities to participate in the arts as audience & practitioners
“ENGAGEMENT for students with interest” – Students are given platforms to take ownership of their art experience by initiating and completing arts projects
“EXCELLENCE for identified talents” – Students identified to have interest and are talented will be given opportunities for them to deepen their engagement of and develop mastery in chosen area(s)
Description: Theoretical underpinnings and pedagogical approaches/strategies/skills
Pedagogical Approaches
The pedagogy behind the silent movie module is adapted from Musical Futures (Musical Futures, 2008), bringing the non-formal teaching and informal learning approaches into the more formal context of schools.

Based upon the principles of informal learning students
Learn alongside friends, instead of learning through instruction with continuous adult guidance.
Learn music that they choose, like and identify with, as opposed to being introduced to music which is often new and unfamiliar, chosen by the teacher.
Assimilate skills and knowledge in personal ways according to musical preference.

Non – formal teaching has a number of common characteristics:
An inclusive approach for music making, lowering entry barriers.
A belief in group-based activities in performing, listening, composing & improvising.
A sense of immediacy and exploration.
A more democratic view of learning – utilising the skills within the group through peer learning, teachers shedding the mantle of ‘expert’, students and teachers co-constructing content and objectives for sessions.

Evidence of Impact on Student Learning
The data collated from Google Forms reveals that many students who enter YSS are without any formal musical background. Few have private instrumental tuition or used to be in a music-related CCA. The main strand of music that students are exposed to is Popular Music. Teachers then decide on a music curriculum that ultilises songs from Popular Music and its style to engage students.

The underlying belief is when the informal and non-formal approaches are implemented successfully, motivation among students increases. This is reflected by students staying on task in lessons for the majority of the time, showing that they are self-directed learners and that students enjoying their lessons. Apart from musical skills, students also learn how the values of teamwork through active contribution and some emerge as natural leaders.

iPad Band Module:
The challenges in conducting the iPad Band module were three-fold. Students had poor aural discriminatory skills: groups were unable to play in synchronisation and had a poor sense of rhythm. Second, high noise levels in class because of the use of speakers caused students to be unable to listen to their own group members during practice. Last, the limited time factor made it challenging for the teacher to give sufficient feedback to all groups.

With the use of a sample backing track saved in GarageBand, students then record their chosen instrument into the software. Personal self-assessment is first done by listening to their own recording before asking peers for feedback. This causes students to practice focused listening through earphones and thereby reduces noise levels. The saved recordings allows students to assess students’ work after lessons and give feedback dring the next lesson.

Keyboard Module:
When teachers demonstrate chords and rhythm patterns in front of the class, some students may not be able to pick up what was shown or might not be able to see the teacher’s hands. Hence, keyboard instructional videos were created and uploaded on YouTube. Students are able to view and review the videos to learn different chords and rhythm patterns. This informal learning allows students to be self-directed and to learn at their own pace. Higher ability students will be able to progress view more videos once achieving mastery of the basic skill set.

SST Outdoor Classroom Project
Limited Capacity seats available

To provide a platform for the conduct of onsite Place-based Learning during Field Trips. The learning approach allows the setup of a temporary classroom to support the learning of students on-site. In this setting, a group of students participated in an environmental science field study to experience knowledge integration and a decision-making process. The project involves a group of students engaged in a 2-phase science and planning project. In phase 1, students will work on six research topics to understand the characteristics of an organic farm and in phase 2, they will plan for the development of an ecological village. Students collected and analysed data from the field and shared their findings. Should there be any problems with the data collected, they will be able to refine their methods of data collection immediately. Throughout the project, students will experience the development of integrated knowledge, the challenges of knowledge sharing and communication during their collaboration. This will allow students to learn through a collaborative problem-solving process, including the interdependence of knowledge and the development of mutual relationships such as respect and care for others’ knowledge and learning. Through this project, we attempt to encapsulate all the value-propositions of SST. They key Google Apps used are Google Maps and Google Sketchup.

Using Googlesheets to bespoke the learning experience of students
Limited Capacity filling up

In the drive to differentiate the learning experience and learning support of our students, it is imperative that we start at better understanding the students' current level of attainment and this can be done through the judicious analysis of students' work. GoogleSheets can be used to provide an immediate feedback to students on their areas of strengths and weakness so that steps can be taken to maximise areas of strengths whilst compensating for weaknesses.

Through the use of the functionalities of GoogleSheets, we will walk through the analysis process and how this knowledge help to shape the direction and learning experience of a Secondary 4 Mathematics class.
