Endeavour Primary School Helps Students with E-books

At Endeavour Primary School, teachers are pushed to encompass technology into their curriculum. This assists pupils in their understanding of topics by giving them a more multi-faceted view on the subjects.

KooBits, an e-book programme developed to host a range of multimedia tools helps users to produce interesting and dynamic content. For teachers, KooBits acts as an agent to produce with teaching materials where students can participate during lessons. As a result, students are more attentive 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 written digital books for the all the subjects in the curriculum.

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

Endeavour Primary School recently built 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 Endeavour Primary School on a whole. It has helped the school achieve their vision of enriching learning with effective and innovative use of technology .
