Department Mission:To harness the use of ICT for Clementians to be self-directed, responsible and future-ready digital learners
In early 2018, the school has adopted Google Classroom for all Primary 1 to 6 Clementians to improve learning through appropriate use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Google Classroom seamlessly integrates with other Google tools and helps teachers refresh their curriculum with integrated education applications. With Google Classroom, teachers can create classes, distribute assignments, send feedback, and enable online collaboration to deepen pupils’ learning and problem solving abilities. Teachers can also manage assignments and communicate with Clementians conveniently on the online platform. Google classroom provides Clementians an intuitive online learning platform for self-directed and collaborative learning, using a set of Google applications such as Google Slides, Sheets and Docs.
Student Learning Space
As part of its commitment to nurturing future-ready learners, the Ministry of Education had announced that all students in Singapore schools will be supported in their learning by the Singapore Student Learning Space (SLS), an online learning platform that contains curriculum-aligned resources and learning tools. With the SLS, Clementians will have access to a wider range of curriculum-aligned resources curated by MOE. Teachers will also be able to use the SLS to complement their classroom teaching, further enriching our Clementians’ experiences towards ubiquitous learning.
Primary 4 and 5 Coding Enrichment
Primary 4 Clementians learn about the basics of Microbit in their Science lessons. This is also part of the efforts to improve structured thinking for solving flowchart problems. The coding on the Microbit is block based, which makes it easy for Clementians to pick up coding and they will be given opportunities to apply what they have learnt through a series of performance tasks. Systematic and logical thinking is necessary for effective problem solving. The coding enrichment programme will expose Clementians to more advanced applications of the Microbit and allow them to see a wider possibility in the use of this technology. Primary 5 Clementians have their coding enrichment (as part of the Code for Fun programme) which allows them to do coding using Scratch 2.0. Clementians will be given a series of performance tasks at the end of the enrichment to assess their understanding of the programme. Coding allows them to think in a systematic and logical manner and helps them to utilize ICT tools effectively for problem solving.

The school uses the MOE Cyberwellness framework to develop Clementians’ instinct to protect and empower Clementians to take responsibility for their own well-being in cyberspace. The three principles, ‘Respect for Self and Others’, ‘Safe and Responsible Use’ and ‘Positive Peer Influence’ when adhered to will anchor Clementians’ well-being in cyberspace as Clementians will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.
