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 Eastview Primary School has efficiently made use of this software to support their curriculum with technology.
KooBits, an dynamic e-book software helps users to unobstructedly construct digital books. This e-book system rids users of cumbersome steps to fuse various 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 programme helpful in coming up with teaching materials for lessons. For instance, Mathematics in the school is taught using videos and images to give a multi-angled dimension. This e-book reader 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.
Parents have commented that KooBits has served the purpose of equipping students in Eastview Primary School with relevant Infocommunications Technology (ICT) skills that will help prepare them for the future.
