We are Singapore – 2018 NDP Song


How many times have you heard them say;
“The future is uncertain and everything must change”
Well all of my worries and all of my fears
Begin to lose their weight, when I hold you near

If all that we are is what we believe
Then I know I’ve got to be the change I want to see
How easy we forget that everything takes time
No, nothing's ever perfect, but I still call you mine

This is my country, this is my flag
This is my future, this is my life
This is my family, these are my friends
We are Singapore, Singaporeans

This is my country, this is my flag
This is my future, this is my life
This is my family, these are my friends
We are Singapore, Singaporeans

We, the citizens of Singapore,
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society
based on justice and equality
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity
and progress for our nation.

This is my country, this is my flag
This is my future, this is my life
This is my family, these are my friends
We are Singapore, Singaporeans

We are Singapore, we are Singapore
We will stand together, hear the lion roar
We are Singapore, we are Singapore
We’re a nation strong and free forever more
(This is my country, this is my flag) We are Singapore, we are Singapore
(This is my future, this is my life) We will stand together, hear the lion roar
(This is my family, these are my friends) We are Singapore, we are Singapore
We are Singapore, Singaporeans
We are Singapore, Singaporeans

Roblox --- what is it? any educational value?

WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW

Parents need to know that Roblox is a game-creation site where users design and upload their own games, as well as play other games in a multiplayer environment. Some of the gameplay is advanced, and many games include weapons. The site offers a safe-chat mode for those under 13, as well as a parent login that lets you oversee your child's use of the site. There have been reports of users thwarting the chat and exchanging inappropriate/predatory messages with young players; although we haven't encountered that directly during our extensive use of the site, parents may still want to be wary when their kids are using the site or connecting with people they've just met. There are in-game currency items called Robux that you can use to unlock additional items, but you will either earn these slowly or pay for additional cash with real money. They can also sign up for a membership for extra content and can insert in-game ads into their created games, potentially making large sums of money off their unique ideas.


Educational Value
Kids can learn about designing virtual worlds and games and get feedback on their work from other site users. Because the directions are housed on a separate site, the design tool isn't extremely easy to figure out, which may limit the amount of practical knowledge kids obtain. Roblox has a lot of potential; the drag-and-drop tool could help kids obtain design experience. Collaborating with other users will also help them build teamwork and communication skills. But adding a tutorial or site-provided feedback, such as a chat option to ask questions, would ensure that kids understand how to use the site. Roblox provides a flexible, imaginative environment for gamers and upcoming designers to create and explore.

Positive Messages
Positive social interaction is encouraged, reinforced by users' generally favorable critiques of others' game designs.

Code Your Heart Out This Valentine's Day! | Tynker Blog

Code Your Heart Out This Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is the best time of year for kids to tell friends, classmates, and family how much they care about them! There's something for everyone on Tynker this Valentine's Day – with our three fun coding projects (ranging from beginner to advanced coding levels), kids can code a game to find a hidden candy heart, animate a candy dispenser to spread the love, and customize a valentine with jokes and art.
As they follow the guided tutorials to code their projects, kids will learn to add music, program different backgrounds, use physics, set conditions, create visual effects, and more! And what could be sweeter than that?

Candy Heart Search (Beginner)

Spread the Love (Intermediate)

Valentine's Day E-card (Advanced)

How to code these projects

All Tynker users have access to these projects in their Daily Missions and Tutorials Directory. Simply click on the project card and follow the instructions to get started! If you do not have an account, you can sign up for a FREE account here and access many fun coding puzzles, games, and tutorials.
Teachers, all your students already have access to these projects as Daily Missions. In addition, you may also assign the projects to your class:
  1. Log in to your Tynker account.
  2. Click on the "Start Tutorial" button above to open the project.
  3. Save the project to your account.
  4. Go to your "My Projects" section.
  5. Hover over the project you want to assign and click the "Assign+" button.
After your class has finished, don't forget to create a class showcase of all your students' projects to share with friends and parents.
Parents, to give these projects to your child:
  1. Have your child log in to his/her account. 
  2. They can find "Candy Heart Search," "Spread the Love," and "Valentine's Day E-card" in their Tutorials Directory!
We love to see what kids are making! Share your Valentine's Day projects on Twitter or Facebook and be sure to tag us @goTynker.
