national digital literacy programme (NDLP)

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. Throughout their educational journey, students will be able to acquire digital skills across four components in the “Find, Think, Apply, Create” framework.

Strengthening digital literacy of students

Watch Minister for Education, Ong Ye Kung, explain the four components in the "Find, Think, Apply, Create" framework at the Committee of Supply 2020.

personal learning device (PLD)

One of the components of the NDLP is the introduction of the Personalised Digital Learning Programme (PDLP) for all secondary school students, whereby every secondary school student will own a school-prescribed Personal Learning Device (PLD).

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. 

The use of the PLD for teaching and learning aims to:

Support the Development of Digital Literacies

Support self-directed and collaborative learning

Enhance Teaching & Learning
