SST offered applied learning, an initiative not able to found in other schools.

I aspire to be able to contribute effectively to the school and to the society.

Wishes On The Wall

1 of the useful features of Wallwisher is that it allows students to simultaneously access the same wall using different devices and post their ideas on the wall to share them with the teacher and their classmates.

1 of the limitations is that each sticky has a limitation of only 160 characters, thus if we exceed the limit, we will have to continue on another sticky. When we post the other sticky, the wall may become a bit messy.

It can be used for debates and planning of activities.

Facebook is my favourite Web 2.0 tool as it allows us to effectively stay in touch with our friends and make new friends online at the same time. As practically everybody has a Facebook account these days, thus, it would be easy for us to know more about them, just by looking at their Facebook page. We may even rediscover new friends when we search for them and find their account on Facebook.

Places That I Have Been To In Singapore During This School Holidays.

Suggested Route From My Home To SST.

Google Maps also provides us with the total estimated travelling time of a specific route, so that we can plan what time we have to leave any destination in order to reach another on time. It also takes note of the various traffic conditions on the route so that we would be able to take another route to avoid a traffic jam.

I think that the information that Google Maps provide is extremely useful as we can get directions easily without asking around and wasting our time. The information given would definitely be very reliable itself as these maps all have pictures and stuffs like that.
