Personalised Digital Literacy Programme (PDLP)
At MOE’s Committee of Supply Debate in March 2020, MOE launched the National Digital Literacy Programme (“NDLP”) for our schools and Institutes of Higher Learning to help students strengthen their digital literacy. One of the components of the NDLP is the introduction of the Personalised Digital Learning Programme (“PDLP”) which places in the hands of secondary school students, a school-prescribed Personal Learning Device (“PLD”) by end-2021.
The PLD will be used in tandem with the national e-learning platform – the Singapore Student Learning Space (“SLS”) – as well as other educational technology to personalise and enhance students’ learning. This will also enable students to acquire digital skills and apply these skills as they navigate an increasingly digitalised world.

Technology – A Way of Life in GESS
Together, we harness Technology to enhance teaching and learning in GESS, to bring up a new generation of responsible and ethical learners
With the firm belief that ICT should be part of quality teaching and learning, the Technology department takes the initiative to collaborate with all departments to design and enact an ICT-enriched curriculum in GESS.
A landmark programme under the ICT department’s charge continues to be the rollout of the Personalised Digital Learning Programme (PDLP). Since its onset in 2021, the department has taken care of it every step of the way – from device procurement, to distribution, to routine maintenance.
Under the ICT Department also takes charge in organising the the yearly Code For Fun enrichment programme that aims to promote computational thinking among the Secondary 1s.
