The Ministry of Education’s Transforming Education Through Technology (EdTech) Masterplan 2030 will be implemented in schools progressively from 2024. With this masterplan, schools can leverage education technology to do more with current resources to cater to students’ different learning needs, while helping teachers manage the pace of change.
MOE will strengthen the development of students’ digital literacy, including digital information management skills that will enable them to better discern the accuracy, credibility and relevance of information. The ministry will provide schools with resources, including self-paced lessons hosted on the online learning portal Singapore Student Learning Space (SLS).
To address concerns over possible mental health risks associated with technology and social media use, MOE will strengthen students’ cyber wellness, by inculcating healthy digital habits through the Character and Citizenship Education curriculum.
From 2024, primary schools, secondary schools and junior colleges will also be able to use a new $64 million School White Area and Canteen Grant to convert and optimize the use of physical spaces in schools to meet evolving educational needs.
