Welcome Message by Mdm Goh Mee Mee, N3 Cluster Superintendent, Schools DivisionW
It gives me great pleasure in welcoming you to this year’s N3 7th ICT Symposium. The symposium brings together thought leaders, teacher practitioners and educational researchers for a noble purpose - to share their insights, practices, experiences and research studies in the use of technology to advance 21st century teaching and learning.
This year’s theme is presented around the theme of being future-ready. The underlying philosophy of the ICT Masterplan 4 is that education should prepare our students to meet the challenges of the 21st century. These challenges and the response of our education system in equipping the future workforce, have continued to evolve.To excel in the new economy, today’s students will need to be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and dispositions that will enable them to navigate the world of tomorrow. In this aspect, MP4 aims to empower our students to use technology for quality learning and to prepare them to be future-ready and responsible digital learners.
This year, we are pleased to have Professor David Hung, Associate Dean and Dr Kenneth Lim, Research Scientist from Office of Educational Research, National Institute of Education as our keynote speakers.
Finally, special thanks to members of the N3 ICT Symposium Organising Committee without whom this symposium would not have been possible. I would also like to thank Compassvale Secondary School for hosting this year’s symposium.
I look forward to seeing you at the symposium and I wish all participants a fruitful and pleasant learning experience.
