More primary schools may see students using smartphones to learn
More primary schools in Singapore may see students using smartphones to aid learning in classrooms.
This, after a year-long technology trial in Nan Chiau Primary School was found to be successful.
Primary Three students in the school were put through an English and Science curriculum using a specially-developed smartphone programme.
After going through the programme, developers of the system said students' oral English skills and ability to ask and respond to questions improved.
The curriculum is being expanded to include Primary Four students in the school.
Developers of the programme plan to work with more schools to roll out the smartphone curriculum.
