“Transforming Education through Technology” Masterplan 2030

Gain insights on the strategic focus of our “Transforming Education through Technology” Masterplan 2030.


To harness the transformative potential of technology in education, MOE has launched the “Transforming Education through Technology” Masterplan 2030 or “EdTech Masterplan 2030” for short, which outlines how schools can better leverage technology to enhance teaching and learning.

The EdTech Masterplan 2030 builds on the previous 2020 EdTech Plan and ICT Masterplans, and addresses the opportunities and challenges of the post-COVID landscape, where technology has become a critical enabler of learning.


The vision of the EdTech Masterplan 2030 is "Technology-transformed learning, to prepare students for a technology-transformed world".

Outcome goals

Students: Digitally-empowered, future-ready learners and innovators
Digitally-empowered 21st century learners who are:
  • Self-directed in setting goals and managing their learning using a range of digital tools and resources. 
  • Collaborative and connected in using digital tools to co-construct and share knowledge with others.
Digitally literate learners who:
  • Apply digital literacy and technological skills to “distil and discern” through the effective use of technology.
  • Exercise cyber wellness to use technology in a safe and discerning manner.
Empathetic, technologically-adept innovators who:
  • Use human-centred methodologies to “discover” needs and “develop” solutions to real-world problems.
  • Skilfully leverage a range of digital tools to create solutions.
Teachers: Technologically-adept, collaborative learning designers
Collaborative contributors who:
  • Embrace a culture of teamwork, sharing, adoption and adaptation of digital resources and best practices for teaching with technology.
Pedagogically proficient, data literate learning designers who: 
  • Are proficient in using e-Pedagogy to design effective tech-enabled learning experiences.
  • Harness learning data to better understand students’ needs and provide more targeted guidance.
Learners and innovators who:
  • Continually develop and deepen their digital literacy and technological skills.
  • Regularly experiment with technology to make their teaching more efficient and effective.
Schools: Intelligent, responsive, digitally-equipped learning environment
Flexible, multi-functional learning spaces
  • Classrooms and common spaces designed and equipped to adapt quickly and easily to meet a variety of teaching and learning needs.
Digitally connected learning spaces
  • Continuous enhancement of network connectivity to support learning anytime and anywhere learning.
  • Use of communication technology to overcome limitations of physical space, connecting in-school learning with the outside world.
System: Networked EdTech ecosystem
Enhanced public-private partnerships
  • Stronger partnership between MOE, other government agencies, Institutes of Higher Learning and private sector to develop and scale good EdTech practices and solutions more quickly.
Plugged into international EdTech network
  • MOE’s EdTech efforts informed by the latest research and industry developments, and benchmarked against international best practices.
Parent as key partners
  • Stronger support from parents to complement schools’ efforts in EdTech use, especially in consistent cyber wellness guidelines and practices adopted at home.

Implementation focus

Supporting the EdTech Plan vision are the strategic thrusts and key enablers.

Strategic thrusts

They provide direction on how MOE will embed technology more extensively in teaching and learning.

Strategic thrust 1: Greater customisation of students’ learning
  1. Provide AI-enabled, resource-rich Singapore Student Learning Space (SLS) for greater customisation of learning
    • AI-enabled features in SLS to customise learning pathways to individual student’s needs, for example, the Adaptive Learning System.
    • Richer variety of learning resources in the SLS to enable finer customisation and to support self-directed learning.
  2. Provide digital tools and platforms to enhance feedback and assessment
Strategic thrust 2: Strengthen development of students’ digital literacy and technological skills
  1. Strengthen development of students’ digital literacy and technological skills.
    • Further elaboration of the “Find, Think, Apply, Create” framework to support deepening of digital literacy in schools, for example, with the Nine Digital Competencies.
    • Repository of self-paced lessons on Digital Literacy and Technological Skills (beginning with AI Literacy) hosted on SLS.
  2. Strengthen cyber wellness
    • Greater emphasis will be placed on cyber wellness within the Character and Citizenship Education curriculum to help students form good digital habits.
Strategic thrust 3: Empower development of students’ 21st Century Competencies (21CC)
Harness technology to enhance students’ 21CC development
  • Scaling of school programmes that leverage technology to develop 21CC, for example, digital making.
  • Enable greater intentionality of 21CC in the curriculum.
Strategic thrust 4: Strengthen school and department culture of collaboration and EdTech practices
  1. Establish culture and practice of sharing and adapting lesson resources in subject departments to ease lesson preparation load.
  2. Establish use of e-Pedagogy in subject departments.
Strategic thrust 5: Strengthen teachers’ EdTech practice
  1. Greater emphasis on e-Pedagogy and use of EdTech in both NIE pre-service teacher training and in-service teacher professional development.
  2. Provide resources and professional development opportunities for teachers on data literacy and cyber wellness.
  3. Partner Centre of Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) to study and share effective and innovative use of EdTech.
