KooBits E-Compo is an online platform for peer tutoring in writing. E-Compo is a digital writing platform that aims to empower students to take ownership of their learning, improve their writing skills through peer-editing and at the same time help save teachers’ time in marking essays. It’s an online portal where a teacher can assign writing homework to students. The teacher can choose from a collection of 300 STELLAR aligned writing worksheets, which cover a wide range of topics from P1 to P6. Teachers can also upload or create a customized writing template to assign as homework. Students complete their writing online, and are then tasked to grade themselves or to have them evaluate a classmate’s writing. Students will use very structured review tools to edit Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation, Word Choice, and follow a set of content rubrics that is aligned to the latest MOE syllabus and guidelines. Students will then make changes and corrections on their writing. Every time they submit to teachers, a version of the writing will be saved as a new edition. At the end of the project, both students and teachers will be able to see a progression of students’ writing, from the very first version to the latest edition. Students’ writing can be archived and displayed on a digital bookshelf. They can be used for future reference or used as a showcase to parents.

Statecraft X is a 24/7 persistent-world, multiplayer game for students to construct meaning and identities in the context of citizenship education and social studies. The game is played on Apple iPhones. Its use is situated within the broader context of a learning program that explores how learning can be engendered across the boundaries of school, home, and other ‘outside’ environments such as on the train and in the shopping mall. In Statecraft X, students learn citizenship by playing the role of governors in a fantasy world. They have to ensure the total well being of the different peoples of the land, comprising trolls, elves, dwarfs, and humans. Satisfying the material needs and non-material wants of the citizenry being governed turns out to be a non-trivial matter. Support of the citizenry cannot simply be bought with money. Ideological issues have to be addressed. Coalitions have to be forged. Diplomacy has to be skillfully managed. Should players compete or collaborate for the successful development of statehood? Game-based learning with Statecraft X seeks to create an open dialogic space within which issues related to the social studies curriculum and principles of governance at the secondary three level can be openly confronted and deliberated. Students’ meaning making and identity construction are examined through the lens of the performance–narrative dialectic. Values and beliefs related to active citizenship are fostered through trans-contextual participation in game play that crosses the artificial boundary of in-school and out-of-school.
Space Station Leonis
Space Station Leonis is a single-player PC game designed as part of a broader National Education programme where students enact citizenship through game play, discussions, and individual and group tasks. The game’s narrative is set in the 23rd century, on the space station Leonis which is orbiting around the planet Earth. The game consists of two different game modes: 1) Role-Playing Scenario Mode: In this game mode, students take on the roles of characters who they guide through interactive narratives, making choices that have far-reaching effects on the game world. 2) Simulation Mode: In this game mode, students take on the role of the first President of the space station, and bear the responsibility of developing the station’s infrastructure, building up its economy and managing its diplomatic relations with other parties.
