Investigating the efficacy of the use of ICT for slow learners : Case studies in Singapore Primary Schools

Abstract : This exploratory project investigates the implications and changes effected through the introduction of IBM's KidSmart programme into the Learning Support Programme (LSP) in 6 Singapore primary schools. It focuses on the impact of ICT on teaching and learners methodologies embraced by teachers working with slow learners (or learners at risk). The principal aim of this project is to identify workable teaching models or processes that can maximize learning through the use of ICT with slow learners. Findings indicated that all teachers interviewed used ICT actively with their learners as a support learning tool, alongside the main curriculum. Based on this, three major themes were identified which suggest how teachers can consider using ICT with slow learners to optimise learning gains.
