Leveraging on Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Henry Park Primary school has designed a series of interesting learning activities to nurture the joy of learning. In addition, authentic tasks are used to promote the use of Chinese during daily interaction.
For the lower primary pupils, teachers use the Xuele platform to spark off pupils’ interest in class. The iMTL portal is used to create learning tasks such as “I am a little singer” and “Chinese riddles fun”. For the upper primary pupils, learning is further enhanced through the “Young Journalist” programme. With the use of ICT platforms, pupils not only learn to write emails, they also learn to craft interview scripts, record interviews and edit video clips to showcase and share their findings on the given topics.
These ICT experiences have effectively promoted self-directed learning and collaborative learning. Pupils have become more confident and proficient in using Chinese in their daily interactions.
