There is a growing concern that the present approach to education is unlikely to prepare the young for new circumstances and new problems that they may face in the future knowledge-driven economy. The young have to be schooled in the use of ICT and develop the habits of lifelong self-directed learning. The eduPAD Project under the IT Master Plan initiative is an attempt to make learning more student-centred in the Singapore school system. In this paper we explore the usage of the eduPAD by a particular teacher in the trial school by comparing a lesson in which the device was used with a lesson in which it was not used.
