  1. 1. e-Learning Readiness ofHong Kong Teachers Dr. Kong Siu Cheung Department of Mathematics and Information Technology The Hong Kong Institute of Education
  2. 2. e-Learning in School Education in the Twenty-first Century With a goal of shifting to learner-centered learning paradigm:  Emphasizing the process of active, constructive and interactive learning among students for the development of subject knowledge and twenty-first century skills Under the trend of creating digital classrooms within campuses:  Supporting students to use portable devices that are wirelessly interconnected for resource retrieval and interpersonal communication in general classrooms
  3. 3. The Implication of Using DigitalResources in Learning and Teaching http://diy.fwg.hk/exercise.php?a=chi&e=biyu

  5. 5. e-Learning in Primary Schoolsin Hong Kong
  6. 6. A Review of e-Learning Readiness of Primary School Teachers in Hong Kong A one-month questionnaire survey with all the 482 primary schools in Hong Kong 72.20% of local primary schools participated in the questionnaire survey (N = 348) The principal or his/her representative in each surveyed school anonymously completed the web-based questionnaire in a “self- administered” approach in December 2012 Four main questions covered the themes of IT integration into subject teaching and professional development for IT in education
  7. 7. Current Situations of IT Integration for e- Learning: Teachers’ Extent of Using IT for Teaching Teachers across different subject areas in general often used IT for subject teaching, with mean ratings above 4 (“a lot”) Computer/IT subject teachers nearly “always” (with the mean rating closing to the level of 5) used IT in subject teaching
  8. 8. e-Learning Readiness of Primary School Teachers in Hong Kong Local primary school teachers are generally confident of and adapted to the use of IT for learning and teaching across different subjects  There is a trend of using emerging technology for learning and teaching, apart from the digital devices commonly found in school Local primary school teachers have many professional development opportunities to enhance their capacity to continuously integrate IT into learning and teaching  There is a trend of joining interschool sharing sessions, apart from the internal sharing sessions commonly provided by schools
  9. 9. Reflection on the e-Learning Readiness of Primary School Teachers in Hong Kong The teacher-centered teaching paradigm commonly implemented in local primary schools at present makes  primary school teachers lacked of rich experience in the pedagogical use of IT for promoting active, constructive and interactive learning under the one-computer to one-student setting typical for digital classrooms  existing professional development unable to fully support teachers to build confidence and competency in engaging students in active, constructive and interactive learning desirable for digital classrooms
  10. 10. Ways Forward for e-Learning Readiness: Implications for Professional Development Professional development in future should be  sustainable  scalable To better prepare teachers for the long-term and impactful changes in teaching motivations and teaching practices for the promotion of learner-centered learning paradigm
