Abstract: The Ministry of Education, Singapore has undertaken a number of initiatives to make the learning process in schools more student-centered. A proto-type electronic learning device was developed and tested in an authentic school setting. This paper reports the impact of the introduction of the electronic device on the teaching and learning of science and mathematics in the trial school. For this purpose, science and mathematics lessons were video-recorded prior to the introduction of eduPAD and with the use of eduPAD. The video-recorded lessons were analysed to determine the degree of shift from a teacher-centered approach to a more student-centred approach. Are there more studentcentered activities than before? Are teachers comfortable using eduPAD as a tool to help them in the teaching process? Are students happy to use the device for self-directed independent learning? These are some of the questions that this paper has addressed.
