ICT Programme
“I don’t use technology in my classroom because it’s a buzzword or a trend. I use it because connecting my kids with the world will prepare them for the future.” ~ anonymous   

In Changkat Primary School, we believe in teaching our pupils tomorrow’s skills today. A structured Core ICT Programme/Training is administered to ensure that our pupils are equipped with the relevant ICT skills to help them attained the Baseline Standard Set by MOE. The Core ICT Programme/Training is conducted during or after school hours by our IT Resident Trainer. Pupils will then use the skills taught in the implementation of their Project Work (IPW). Teaching of ICT skills are also integrated into the curriculum at P1 and P2 where pupils will be introduced to computer system and its peripherals. Keyboarding skills are also taught weekly.

Integration of ICT into Curriculum
In pursuit of academic excellence, our Supporting ICT Programmes are integrated into the curriculum. Our Learning Management System, MCOnline provides teachers with wide repertoire of teaching materials to support collaborative learning. This platform also encourages pupils to be a Self-Directed learner as pupils will be able to revise their work at their own pace and own time. Learning will be fun for pupils as the Learning Management System provides them with varieties, from stories to game and quizzes. E-learning days are also set aside and e-learning tasks are assigned to pupils frequently in various subjects to ensure that pupils know what to do in case of school closure.

Other ICT applications are also used pervasively in our teaching and learning such as use of the CMS, dataloggers and Web 2.0 tools. ICT is used as a vehicle to drive our IP subjects.

The table below shows how ICT is integrated into IP subjects:
