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.
