Greendale Primary School Builds Library of E-books

At Greendale Primary School, teachers are encouraged to encompass technology into their curriculum. This aids students in their understanding of topics by giving them a more holistic view on the subjects.

KooBits, an e-book reader developed to host a range of multimedia tools helps users to generate 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 attentive during lessons. For students, KooBits encourages them to look beyond their classrooms. They can tap on over 6,000 resources that come with the programme. So far, the students here have easily composed digital books for the all the subjects in the curriculum.

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

Greendale Primary School recently built a library to archive 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 Greendale Primary School on a whole. It has helped the school achieve their vision of infusing the use of Information Technology in the aspects of the educational process for the benefits of the entire school community .
