Self-directed Learning (SDL) & Collaborative Learning (CoL) @ HIPS

The school maximises the MCOnline online learning portal to encourage SDL. The portal provides content-rich e-learning educational & interactive courseware, high quality videos, online assignments and educational games that cater to the different needs of our pupils. The school conducts Home-Based Learning exercises annually and teachers also assign periodic assignments via the portal for pupils to practise SDL.
 
CoL is cultivated through the use of collaborative tools such as google docs across various subjects and project work.
