Craft & Technology

Philosophy

Craft and Technology subjects (D&T, FCE, F&N, Art) are significant in developing students’ ability to solve real-life problems. With empathy as our core value, our Craft and Technology students would develop practical life skills, an understanding of the changing world and a deeper appreciation of different cultures in the society. The main aims of the subjects are to equip the students with the ability to make sense of knowledge and to create new knowledge. Students will also develop critical and inventive thinking skills. 

Desired Learner Outcomes

The curriculum is structured to equip students with higher proficiency and greater understanding in design, aesthetics, financial literacy and food nutrition. The knowledge and competencies will enable the students to handle the VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) environment of the future. The students will be able to:

A) In-depth and Multiple Perceptions

  • Develop the ability to perceive issues from different perspectives and the ability to identify critical issues
  • Record key observations and form personal opinions
  • Equipped with interpretation skills (informed awareness) for deeper understanding of the identified issues
  • Instilled with empathy to be sensitive to the needs of others and thus contribute back to the society

B) Communications

  • Develop critical and inventive thinking skills (informed decisions) through design thinking
  • Conceptualise and visualise ideas and effectively communicate the ideas to others
  • develop positive attitudes and mindset, and gain confidence

C) Application of Knowledge and Skills

  • develop an inquiring mind, a spirit of experimentation and a passion for learning in design, aesthetics, financial literacy and nutrition in food
  • apply design principles in the creation of design artefacts, artworks, financial and meal planning

Teaching and Learning Model / Approach

The Craft and Technology Department adopts Design Thinking as the main teaching and learning framework. With the value of empathy being central to the design process, students will be equipped with the ability to develop innovative and pertinent solutions with positive consequences. The curriculum also is designed to exposes our students to real-life scenarios using interactive and innovative teaching strategies. We aim to develop self-directed learners who have the passion to learn and spirit to serve the community.
