This year’s Straits Times teachers’ session, entitled Get Current: Using News In Your Classroom, was organised by The Straits Times Schools department (ST Schools) at the library@harbourfront in VivoCity.
The session, helmed by Straits Times Schools editor Ms Serene Luo and teaching specialist Debra Ann Francisco, provided tips on how teachers could incorporate current affairs across different subjects.
ST Schools also gave the participants a new guidebook, Using the News In Your Classroom, which gave teachers sample activities, ideas and tips, and demonstrated its digital educational tools Digital IN and NewsEd.
Teachers also learnt about the line-up of ST resources, engagement and outreach activities that would be progressively rolled out.
