    1. Campus TV and the development of important thinking skills
    Document Type: Conference Papers
    Year published: 2007
    Conference: 2007 International Conference on ICT in Teaching and Learning: Enhancing Learning through Technology: Emerging technologies and pedagogies (2007: Hong Kong, China)
    It has been suggested that students can learn with video technology (Jonassen, Howland, Moore and Marra 2003): by involving them in project-based production, they will engage in deep learning and develop a variety of thinking skills in order to complete the project (Jonassen, Carr and Yueh 1998). With the shift from an industrial to a knowledge-based society, the development of skills in, for example, problem solving, project management, collaboration, leadership and presentation is essential (Bransford, Brown, and Cocking 2000). For the past few years, many Hong Kong primary schools have been supported by the Quality Education Fund to set up Campus TV within or beyond the curriculum. Campus TV activities may provide a platform for engaging students in video production to develop important thinking skills -- though the possibility of using such a platform for this purpose is still under development. Last summer, a three-day summer Digital Video (DV) Camp was held in a local primary school, with about 20 Primary 4 and 5 pupils producing their own topics on digital video. Participant observation and semi-structured and focus group interviews were held to find out what the students had learned during the collaborative production process. Through digital ethnography methodology (Goodman 1998), the students demonstrated unexpected creativity, showed proficiency in using technology and media language to express themselves, and explicitly expressed the importance of collaborative skills in the process of video production. These encouraging findings suggest a direction for the implementation of Campus TV for student learning and the development of important thinking skills in the Hong Kong primary school setting.

    2. A web-based learning environment for in-service primary school teachers in Hong Kong
    Document Type: Conference Papers
    Pages: 447-449
    Year published: 2003
    Conference: A conference of the Asia-Pacific Chapter of the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE): The "second wave" of ICT in education: From facilitating teaching and learning to engendering education reform (2003: Norfolk, VA)
    This paper reported the nature of multimedia teaching materials and focuses of discussions of in-service teachers in a web-based learning environment. The significance of the study was that in-service teachers had developed useful multimedia teaching materials for their daily teaching and these could be shared among their peers. Besides, the study on the focuses of teachers' discussions and sharing provided insight and direction of further implementation of discussion forums for teachers.

    Document Type: Conference Papers
    Pages: 951-957
    Year published: 2000
    Conference: Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education International Conference 2000 (2000: Chesapeake, VA)
    This paper shares the personal experience of a teacher educator in Hong Kong who took the opportunity of lecturer attachment to a local primary school to field-test the application of information technology (IT) in teaching a primary school subject in Hong Kong. This is with the aim to get herself familiar with the application of IT in teaching primary pupils, as well as to initiate more discussion and demonstration in promoting the use of IT to the pre-service teachers. The paper also reports on how the teacher educator planned, implemented and evaluated her teaching, along with the difficulties encountered. The paper concludes with practical suggestions for teacher educators and pre-service teachers in Hong Kong on how to implement IT effectively in primary classrooms.

    4. Students' perception of using eportfolios for learning in higher education
    Document Type: Book Chapters
    Pages: 225-233
    Year published: 2015
    City published: Singapore
    Publisher: Springer
    ePortfolio is implemented in a higher education institute in Hong Kong with the objective of building the capacity of students in managing and monitoring their own learning in technology-enhanced environment, and at the same time, it is important for the institute to understand the students’ perspectives in creating the ePortfolios for the ongoing development. As a student-centered learning tool, the study aims to find out whether the ePortfolios could help students learn to document their learning process, showcase their learning outcomes and perform self-reflection on their own learning. Moreover, the purpose of this study was to gain insights from students’ perceptions of the usefulness of ePortfolios for further implementation. Semi-structured interviews were conducted on seven students selected from different programs to understand their perceptions of learning and how they perceive the benefits of ePortfolio creation to learning. It is found that not all students could perceive the objectives of ePortfolio creation which would help them to organize, manage, and reflect on learning and that it is still a long way for freshmen to perceive the benefits of student-centered learning by creating ePortfolios. It is crucial for the institute to consider how to develop the awareness of students to become active learners with the creation of ePortfolios and with the guidance of teachers.
