NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR TEACHERS
But at the end of the day, the goal is for technology to aid teachers, not replace them.
“The teacher is the key and that's why we focus a lot of efforts in the professional development of our teachers,” said Dr Lim. “When we run workshops like that, we are helping to build up our teachers' competencies to be able to use the technology meaningfully in the classroom.”
One example is a physics simulation tool, which more teachers are being trained to use. The computer programme can help students better visualise scientific concepts. -  Hetty Musfirah Abdul Khamid, Channel NewsAsia
