PERSONALISED DIGITAL LEARNING PROGRAMME @ HUA YI
Hua Yi embraces the use of technology as a key enabler to spark the joy of learning in all our students and inspire their pursuit of excellence. Every Hua Yian can leverage technology to grow into passionate and resilient learners, who are equipped with the creativity and confidence to navigate the VUCA landscape and contribute to make a difference.
In Hua Yi’s Personalised Digital Learning Programme (PDLP), students will see themselves employing technology even more purposefully to enhance their learning interactions, enabling them to learn actively in independent as well as collaborative settings, both within and outside of their classrooms. Students will also acquire digital literacy in the four components of Ministry of Education (MOE)’s Digital Literacy Framework:
Personal Learning Device
Every Hua Yian will be using the Apple iPad as their personal learning device. Every iPad will come bundled with the Apple pencil and keyboard to maximise the affordances of the iPad as a learning tool.
Not only is the iPad a portable device that offers students convenient learning on-the-move, it also allows for a seamless learning experience alongside existing learning technologies such as the Student Learning Space (SLS) and Team Model Smarter Classroom System. In addition to apps within Apple’s eco-system, students will also gain access a wide range of programmes from other developers (eg. Google Suite and Microsoft Office etc), making it the device of choice in developing students’ application and creative skills.
Each bundle consists of:
1) Apple iPad 10.2" 32gb Wifi
2) Logitech Ruggedized Keyboard Case
3) Apple Pencil
Digital Citizenship and Cyber Wellness
As Hua Yi develops its students to develop the digital skills that enables their learning, it is also imperative that they are empowered to take responsibility for their personal well-being when using technology.
The school adopts MOE’s Cyber Wellness Framework to develop students into responsible digital citizens. Hua Yians’ attitudes and behaviour on the use of technology are guided by the 3 Cyber Wellness Principles. These principles are constantly reinforced when students engage in the “Sense-Think-Act” process, which serves as a structure for them to use technology safely and meaningfully for their learning and interactions.
To ensure affordability of this device, there was a one-time Edusave top-up of $200 in your child’s Edusave account in April this year. For students who need support,
i. Singapore Citizens students whose gross household income (GHI) is $4,000 and below or whose per capita income (PCI) is $1000 and below, should complete and submit the attached form and supporting income documents to the Hua Yi General Office latest by Fri, 30 Oct, 2020.
If needed, hard copies of the attached form are also available at the General Office.
ii. Permanent residents (PR) and international students (IS) should also approach the Hua Yi General Office for more information on financial assistance.

Roll-Out of IT Applications as part of National Digital Literacy Programme (NDLP)
As part of the NDLP, schools will progressively roll out IT applications that will be vital to students’ learning experience and educational journey. In the following months, MOE will roll out some or all of the following applications:
(a) Student iCON: MOE will give every secondary school student an email address. This is a service provided by Google as part of Google Suite.
(b) Microsoft Pro Plus: every secondary school will be granted a licence to use Microsoft Office tools that include Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
(c) Zoom: MOE will set up Zoom free account with 40 mins time limit using Student iCON for the schools’ video conferencing needs.
The school will need to use your child/ward’s personal data such as his/her name and class to set up user accounts. Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions section for more information on the collection of data via these applications.
