Approach 3: Translational Research, Innovation & Scaling through Open Educational Resources, OER.

Translational Research, Innovation and Scaling (TRIS) in MasterPlan 4 in Education ICT information and communication technology mp4 seeks to nurture a culture of innovation and reflective practice across schools. To do so, it is important to engage schools and teachers in experimentation and innovation efforts such as OER@SG . This will allow teachers to engage in professional discourse (through discussions on each OER@SG article), learn, reflect and explore together, deepen their practice and improve their craft. Through OER@SG translational research, successful evidence-based practices (see OER@SG research page) will identified and scaled up to benefit other schools in the system.

The strategies to support, drive and encourage experimentation and innovation in schools are to:

  1. Scan for educational technology-related issues, promising applications and themes (see OER@SG pages) of relevance to Singapore education system to inform stakeholders.
  2. Translate research findings into classroom practices, lesson resources and learning design principles via rapid prototyping; and
  3. Spread successful practices developed through the innovation projects such as OER@SG , by making them available for all schools to adopt and adapt (thus harnessing OER is one way to achieve this).
