Applied Learning Programme

Active Voice Broadcast Journalism

Deyi’s Applied Learning Programme (ALP) has three approaches to develop our Sec 1 to 3 students’ critical 21st century media and communications skills. First, a whole-school approach (Tier 1) to equip students with baseline skills on media production and journalism (e.g., storyboarding, filming, animation, audio track layering, chroma key green screen technology, editing, transitions, sub-titling) through the Mi-ké-mθn Video Workshop and Mi-ké-mθn Augmented Reality Journalism Trail. Our second approach is to integrate media production and journalism skills into the EL and MTL curricular for better alignment with content generation and the development of critical perspectives.

Students are encouraged to develop advanced media and technical skill-sets (Tier 2) through the Young Journalists’ Club and IT Club. Students’ niche skills are developed with Deyi’s FM Live (‘Our Channel, Our Voices’) and live broadcasts of special events (e.g., National Day, Teachers’ Day Celebrations) as well as technical production skills (e.g., live feeds and cutaways, sound management).

Nurturing Deyians to be Confident and Effective Communicators

In 2019, Deyi’s ALP received MOE’s Innergy Award (Bronze) for school innovation. Our students have successfully gained Early Admission into all 5 tertiary institutions (e.g., Ngee Ann, Singapore and Temasek Polytechnics’ Mass Communications, Film and Media courses) with the broadcast journalism skill-sets honed at Deyi.
