Innovations in ICT
The year 2020 is dedicated to innovation. It forced teachers to step outside their comfort zones and accept the ‘new normal.’ Teachers in the department fearlessly adopted new applications and platforms as Student Learning Spaces (SLS), Google Classroom, Pear Deck, and Padlet, despite the volatility of the scenario. Although some of us had misgivings about Full Home-Based Learning at first, we experimented with novel methods of synchronous and asynchronous online education and were pleasantly delighted by the results.
There was also a sharing among department colleagues about some of the technologies we discovered during Full Home-Based Learning. Mr Goh Bang Rui brought Pear Deck to the department, an interactive teaching tool that allows professors successfully communicate with their students.
Singapore’s perseverance embodies the theme for EL-Humanities Week 2020: From Darkness to Light.

Geography and literature stress activities students require to locate locations using map reading and literary methods.
