Driven by the government’s call for a “world-class" learning habitat , schools have been lapping up on the latest softwares for students and teachers. This has made KooBits a popular choice among educators for its capabilities as a capable e-book software. We take a look at how Chung Cheng High (Main) School has used made use of this software to back their curriculum with technology.
KooBits, an e-book software aids users to smoothly construct digital books. This e-book system rids users of complex procedures to fuse various multimedia tools together. For students, it permits them to fully express their creativity; for teachers, it saves time for them and relieves them of the hassle of learning the software. As a result, users can combine Youtube videos, JPEG images, flash animation and MP3 audio files to get a personalised e-book.
Teachers find this e-book system beneficial in coming up with teaching materials for lessons. For instance, English and Mother Tongue in the school is taught in a form of a storybook. There is a special keyboard in the programme that allows users to key in Mother Tongue characters. This e-book system also helps students comprehend topics better when they are tasked to create their own e-books. As part of Total Defence Day, lower secondary school students came up with books to educate the community regarding the different aspects of it.
As seen,the e-book technology provides opportunities and resources for the staff and students to continually develop their IT skills and knowledge to enhance the teaching and learning processes to move the school forward.
