Hua Yi Secondary School Students Create Personal E-Books

At Hua Yi Secondary School, teachers are pushed to integrate technology into their curriculum. This aids students in their comprehension of topics by giving them a more all-rounded dimension on the subjects.

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

Hua Yi Secondary School students got a chance to use kooBits during the e-Heritage competition. During this competition, students got a chance to exercise their creativity and create ebooks that have a heritage theme. Through this exercise, they got to experience KooBits platform that makes it easy for them to create the ebooks.

Through this competition, we hope it has benefited Hua Yi Secondary School on a whole. Minimally, we hope it can 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 .
