Applied Learning Programme
What is ALP @ MJR?
Smart City and Assistive Technologies
As Singapore steps up its efforts towards the Smart nation initiative, we want our students to be future-ready learners, equipped with the knowledge and skills to contribute towards building a sustainable, safe and secure living space for Singaporeans.
In line with our school’s mission of Developing Passionate Learners and Compassionate Leaders who are future-ready and anchored in values, we also hope to inspire our students to appreciate the humanitarian considerations when applying the Smart technologies for the elderly and less fortunate.
Our Applied Learning programme
aims to Engage, Enrich and Empower our
students to learn about the science of Smart technologies, and understand its application
in a Smart home system. Students will be required to propose innovative ways on
how the safety and security of the elderly can be monitored and improved.
This exemplifies the
values-driven education our school undertakes to promote a keen interest in
nation building in creating a more vibrant, exciting and advanced
society for generations to come.
The programme design focuses on nurturing a culture of experimentation, scientific inquiry and curiosity via the usage of Smart and assistive technologies to solve real world problems. Students will work in groups of 4 – 5 to acquire relevant skills in basic programming and functionality of selected sensors.
