Open Educational Resource @ Singapore OER@SG and Open Source Physics @ Singapore OSP@SG are experimentation and innovation efforts aim at nurturing a culture of innovation and reflective practice across schools under Translational Research, Innovation and Scaling (TRIS) in MasterPlan 4 in Education Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
Teachers engage in professional discourse (through discussions on each OER article, OSP@SG Whatsapp chatgroup etc ), to learn, reflect and explore together, deepen their practice and improve their craft.
Through technology scans and translational research, successful evidence-based practices (seeOSP@SG research page) will identified, catalogued as articles and practices that can be serve to inform and scale up to other schools in the system.
The strategies to support, drive and encourage experimentation and innovation in schools are to:
- Scan for educational technology-related issues, promising applications and themes (see OER@SG Interactive Resource pages) of relevance to Singapore education system to inform stakeholders through open communcations.
- Translate research findings into classroom practices, lesson resources and learning design principles via rapid prototyping (see OSP@SG physics simulations)
- Spread successful practices developed through the innovation projects (http://edulab.moe.edu.sg/edulab-programmes/existing-projects), by making them available for all schools to adopt and adapt (thus harnessing OER is one way to achieve this).
