This workshop illustrates how the PE teachers in Hougang Primary School sought to deepen students’ learning and strengthen their assessment literacy through e-Pedagogy.
In 2021, the school’s PE department piloted the use of a digital application, Seesaw, in all the Primary 1 and 2 classes, as well as one of the Primary 5 classes. Teachers found the functions in the application particularly useful in tracking their students’ learning progress throughout the year, and saw its potential in facilitating blended learning and formative assessment experiences. Building on the success of the pilot, the initiative was scaled up across all levels in 2022, to support the department goal of creating a digital PE portfolio for every student that captures the child’s PE experiences in the school from Primary 1 to 6.
During the workshop, participants will engage in hands-on experiences of using Seesaw, as well as try out the Metaverse application that the school also adopted for its Programme for Active Learning (PAL) and Outdoor Education (OE) curriculum.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to start a digital portfolio initiative in their classes using the ICT tools and understand the varying considerations related to its implementation.
To ensure that you have a seamless experience during the hands-on portion of the sharing, we kindly request that you bring your personal devices (smartphones or tablets) and download two specific apps: Metaverse and Seesaw.
Metaverse is a fantastic app that we’ll be using for a unique interactive experience. You can download Metaverse from your device’s app store by searching for “Metaverse.” It’s a free app and will be essential for our activities.
Seesaw is another app that we’ll be utilizing during the event. Please download Seesaw by searching for “Seesaw” on your device’s app store. Seesaw is also a free app and will help you engage in the hands-on portion effectively.
Please ensure that you have both apps installed on your device before the sharing begins. This will help us make the most of our time together.
