Singapore’s future economic progress and success depends on an educated workforce which has to be creative, knowledgeable, and strong in Information Technology (IT). IT plays a vital role in the workplace at present and in the future but is the Singapore’s education system preparing the students for this? The Government has responded well to this challenge and has committed large resources to the use of IT in schools. It has implemented various programmes to help students acquire IT skills in the past and recently, proposed a number of innovative approaches to help students face the future challenge. A national IT master plan for education is at present being developed and it will take the schools into next millennium.
