SingTeach March 2018 – Fostering Positivity and Meaning in Schools

Thursday, 26 April 2018


Creating a positive environment is essential to students’ overall development. In this issue of SingTeach guest-edited by Dr Imelda Caleon and Dr Jennifer Pei-Ling Tan from the Office of Education Research at NIE, we feature voices from researchers, teachers and school leaders that resonate towards one common goal – to cultivate student well-being in schools.


The SingTeach editorial team is also happy to announce that the magazine has undergone a content and design revamp since its last one in 2012. The changes and additions to the new version of SingTeach are as follow:


1) Big Idea is now The Big Idea

2) Research is now Research in Action

3) Classroom is now Classroom Perspectives

4) (New!) Tip Bits: Bite-sized classroom tips for teachers

5) (New!) Snapshot: Infographics

6) (New!) In Their Own Words: Quotes from teachers/school leaders/policymakers pertaining to the theme of the issue.
