Desired Outcomes of YCKSS Digital Education

5Cs Framework 2021 v2.png




















The YCKSS Digital Education encourages the development of the following critical digital literacies:

  • Curationaccess, collate and analyse digital information
  • Creation: innovate and create products/content using digital tools
  • Communication and collaboration: communicate, learn and collaborate through a digital media
  • Computational thinking: investigate and solve problems systematically

Recognising that through the digital tools, students have a window to the world, the YCKSS Digital Education is designed to nurture Responsible Digital Citizens who are able to safeguard the well-being of themselves and others when using digital tools and platforms.

National Digital Literacy Programme (NDLP) @ YCKSS



The NDLP aims to equip our students with key Digital Literacies. 

Digital Literacies better enable our students, at different stages of their education journey, to acquire the digital skills required to navigate the digital age through four mutually reinforcing components in the ‘Find, Think, Apply and Create’ framework. At YCKSS, we have customised this into our Digital Education Framework.

Personal Learning Device (PLD) Presentation & Unboxing Day  [LATEST]  

Students will receive their devices in school during the PLD Presentation & Unboxing Day. Sec 2s and 3s are scheduled to receive their PLDs on 27 Apr 2021, and the Sec 1s on 29 Apr 2021. Form Teachers will present students with the PLDs individually before taking them through the process of unboxing and set up. The PLD is pre-installed with the Device Management Application (DMA) to provide a safe learning experience for your child, and to encourage responsible use of the device.

Personal Learning Device (PLD) for Secondary School Students

After careful considerations based on portability, durability and T&L affordance, the PLD selected for use at YCKSS is the Apple iPad (2020 8th Generation) with the accompanying Apple Pencil and Keyboard Combo.

Purchase of PLD

Singapore Citizen students can use their available Edusave balance to pay for the PLD after setting aside provision for payment of 2nd tier miscellaneous fees. MOE has provided a one-off Edusave top-up of $200 in 2020, to all eligible Singaporean students in primary and secondary schools. This is on top of the annual Edusave contribution of $290 for secondary students and $230 for primary students. Please note that it is compulsory for all existing students on the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme to use their Edusave to pay for the PLD, after subsidies have been granted.

Subsidies are available for students who require financial assistance to purchase a PLD. Students under the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme for the year will automatically be subsidised for the PLD. Students who are currently not under the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme may apply for additional subsidy if their Gross Household Income (GHI) is $4,000 or less, or Per Capita Income (PCI) is $1,000 or less. “PCI” refers to the Gross Household Income divided by the total number of family members in the household. Students can collect the application form at the General Office.

Device Management Application (DMA)

To support the use of the PLD in the classroom, as well as safeguard students’ cyber wellness, the PLD will be pre-installed with a DMA.

Responsible Use of the PLD

The school has in place measures to enable a safe and seamless learning environment for students.

The role of the parent is also key in partnering the school to support your child. Parents could refer to the school's Digital Wellness Policy (DWP) when helping to manage your child’s use of digital devices and platforms. The policy will help your child to understand digital wellness matters and to enable a conducive learning environment. You can also find the DWP in the Student Handbook.

The Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) sets out the rules and regulations that govern the use of PLD by students. This policy will serve to ensure the safe and secure use of the device, and facilitate effective learning with technology. The AUP will be issued before device collection. It will have to be endorsed by parents and students.

Parents/Guardians can refer to the following materials for additional information on the NDLP:

The programme ignites students’ passion for technology via engaging and experiential activities and encourages creators and makers of technology to be creative and daring to explore.   

Students had the opportunity to try and experiment with the various cool new tech exhibits on board such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity, and learnt about how these technologies can be useful in everyday lives.
