As the key initiative under Infocomm Media Programme (ICM), the Infocomm Media (ICM) Learning Roadmap is an important outreach initiative to engage students from primary schools to the junior colleges and help interested students to delve deeper into computer science and develop coding skills.

The ICM Learning Roadmap aims to provide students with specialised training in various ICM domains. Through ICM, students now have easy access to learn more about computer science and develop computational thinking.

ACP has been part of the Infocomm Clubs programme since 2005 and have consistently provided ICM training via carefully  selected training platforms for specific roadmaps focusing in 3 key areas:    

CYBERSECURITY
DATA ANALYTICS
MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT

3 Key Phases of Learning:

Process of Delivery

Our instructors will expose the students to the concept of each functional domain that they have enrolled in, via sharing with them the relevant used cases around them. The students will able to relate and discover the technology that is happening in their daily lives. The process of the delivery of any training session with our carefully selected technology aid will involve the following.

Integration of Online Delivery (Online Learning)

ACP allows integration of video conferencing tools into our learning management system. During the online delivery of session, the instructors will adopt the use of video-conferencing tool to continue teaching. We have specifically created a set of online netiquette to advise our students on the proper protocol for virtual training.

Our Instructors

All our instructors proposed to conduct the Programme are MOE registered and are equipped with experience to conduct ICT trainings in schools. To prepare our instructors for the Programme, we will conduct train the trainers programme that will reinforce their training capability and competency.


4 Pillars of Values Supporting Our Delivery of Curriculum

With our proposed learning management system to facilitate our delivery of curriculum, our instructors will be able to achieve our CASE in point that equipping our students with ICM skill can be done CONSISTENTLY, bearing in mind that the ACCOUNTABILITY of their progress will be in check continuously. The students are playing a part to maintain SUSTAINABILITY of the environment with all training materials to be accesses via digital means. Lastly with the many bite-sized mission –oriented exercises and quizzes, our students will be motivated to stay ENGAGED in the learning process.
