Abstract: This evaluation study aimed to assess the implementation of the Third Masterplan for Information and Communication Technologies in Education (mp3) and its impact on Singapore schools through a 5-year survey of more than 8,000 participants and case studies of 12 schools. This research brief focuses on findings from the 2009 baseline study. In general, Singapore students reported high competencies in basic ICT skills and perceived themselves to be frequently engaged in self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (CoL) using ICT. Their perception of SDL revolved around achieving better academic results, and they tended to adopt a divide-and-conquer strategy for CoL. The teachers also reported high competencies in basic ICT skills. They tended to associate SDL with independent learning using ICT-mediated resources while associating CoL with group work. Recommendations are made on ways to harness ICT to enhance the achievement of the mp3 goals.
