SCI Curriculum – Journey towards 21st Century Student Centric Learning with Google Chromebooks.
Abstract: The purpose of this sharing is to share on how the Self-directed, Collaborative and Integrated (SCI) curriculum of Singapore's Punggol Secondary School enhanced the Grade seven's Normal Technical N (T) students’ perceptions of classroom environment. The success of the SCI curriculum was evident with a mixed method research study of 79 students from the 1N(T) and Sec 2N(T) of Punggol Secondary School recording their perceptions using instruments like What Is happening In Classroom (WIHIC) with the Sec 2N(T) acting as the control group. Results revealed statistically significant differences between experimental group and control group. Qualitative methods suggested further insights on how the SCI curriculum affected positively the students’ perceptions of the classroom environment and the SDL and CoL perceptions. The positive results of the study provided the basis for Punggol to expand part the SCI curriculum to use Chromebooks to provide 21st Century Student Centric Learning.
