Blended Learning with DeYi Secondary School
February 11, 2022
In collaboration with DeYi Secondary School, The International SeaKeepers Society, Asia, Educational Outreach Programme team, co-constructed an e-lesson package entitled “Islands that Made Us”. This lesson was conducted online based on a “plug and play” concept, which includes a documentary video followed by a quiz game. The lesson package exposes students to the different islands and the marine habitats and biodiversity around Singapore. This will help to raise awareness regarding marine science and the conservation efforts taken to tackle global ocean issues.
With the learning materials provided by SeaKeepers Asia, Ms. Eleanor Wong, a Geography teacher from DeYi Secondary School, converted the lesson into an online learning package on Singapore’s Student Learning Space (SLS). This online lesson encompasses a Channel News Asia Video (“Islands of Singapore: The rich marine life of Pulau Jong”) and an interactive thinking tool where students got to reflect on their key takeaway from the video (picture below). The documentary features various islands that make up Singapore and its biodiversity and gives an insight into the work of the marine scientist and volunteer community that takes place on the islands. The interactive tool allowed students to read what other classmates have shared as well, encouraging deeper learning between students.
