E-books help Concord Primary School Students

Heeding MOE’s call to “move lessons out of the classrooms” , 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 powerful e-book software. We take a look at how Concord Primary School has used made use of this software to back their curriculum with technology.

KooBits, an lively e-book software assists users to unobstructedly construct digital books. This e-book programme rids users of complex procedures to fuse different multimedia tools together. For students, it enables 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 software handy in coming up with teaching materials for lessons. For instance, the school teaches science theories using both videos and images in the e-book that helps students understand better. This e-book technology also helps students comprehend topics better when they are tasked to create their own e-books. As part of the National Education syllabus, students were asked to come up with e-books to showcase the different values.

To date, budding authors at Concord Primary School have already produced many books to archive in the school’s library.
