E-Book Software Powers Lessons at Evergreen Primary School

At Evergreen Primary School, teachers are encouraged to include technology into their curriculum. This assists pupils in their comprehension of topics by giving them a more all-rounded perspective on the subjects.

KooBits, an e-book software developed to host a range of multimedia tools helps users to churn out interesting and dynamic content. For teachers, KooBits acts as an agent to churn out with teaching materials where students can participate during lessons. As a result, students are more engaged during lessons. For students, KooBits prompts them to go beyond their classrooms. They can tap on over 6,000 resources that come with the programme. So far, the students here have unobstructedly created digital books for the all the subjects in the curriculum.

A upper primary student at the school commented that this e-book software helped him to comprehend confusing topics. The multiple-choice options available gets students to participate during lessons. He also felt that the software was easy to grasp and this helped him better express his creativity.

Evergreen Primary School recently constructed a library to store the works done by students and teachers. This provides a chance for people to share the digital books and encourages cooperation among the users.

Having Koobits as part of the IT programme has benefited Evergreen Primary School on a whole. It has helped the school achieve their vision of equiping students and teachers with the appropriate ICT tools to experiment, contextualize and boost current teaching pedagogies .
