3 3 Current situation in using e-resources  How often do you use e-resources?  What are the sources?  What is the percentage of using print-based vs e- resources?  Are students & teachers ready to use e-resources?  What are the problems encountered when using e-resources?

4 4 Do you share the same views? E-resources can only be used for enhancing the motivation of students. ? E-learning means using only e-resources throughout the English lesson and teacher’s role can be replaced by computer/e-resources. ? ? E-resources should only be used if the following facilities are available: 1 tablet per student, electronic whiteboard, control over individual students’ PC/tablet. ?

5 Modes of interaction in the English Classroom Teacher-Student interaction  Confirming answers  Giving explanations on common mistakes  Conducting whole-class activities Student-Student interaction  Conducting pair-work / group work  Conducting speaking / writing activities to consolidate learning Teacher-Student interaction  Giving instructions, e.g. setting the scene  Teacher’s demonstration on the use of target structure Human-Technology interaction  Practising the pronunciation  Playing language games  Reading e-books individually Human-Technology interaction  Practising the pronunciation  Playing language games  Reading e-books individually 5

6 E-learning resources e.g. e-texts, web pages, multimedia softwaree-texts Advantages: enable teachers to present abstract concepts in a concrete way, e.g. through pictures, animations, videos and games. Students can acquire and explore knowledge in a flexible way. The Recommended e-Textbook List will be released before the 2014/15 school year: info/emads/index.html Websites of resources for English Language Teaching: 6 Latest Development

8 Curriculum Planning By Key Stages By skills By student abilities By Key learning areas, from one subject to a few subjects Entry Point 8

9 Considerations for the use of e-resources Catering for diverse learning style Visual Auditory Kinesthetic Facilitating group work Recording group discussion / presentation for sharing Promoting assessment for/as learning Voting to facilitate peer assessment Using the Blog / Forum to exchange views and leave comments Giving feedback to problems identified Providing support Online practices E-dictionary E-readers Videos Giving challenges Online resources to promote self- directed learning Enhancing students’ capacity in using e-learning tools 9

10 Resource Management and Funding Administrative measures to ensure smooth implementation of e-learning Capacity building Hardware system Making effective use of funding Resource Management Quality Education Fund Pilot Scheme on e-learning in Schools Support Scheme for e- learning in Schools Funding 10

11 School Sharing on the Development of E-learning Resources 11 HHCKLA Buddhist Wong Cho Sum School Starts from KS1, then move on to KS2 Developing GE Programme: 4 language skills, grammar items Xianggang Putonghua Yanxishe Primary School of Science and Creativity Entry Point: Starts from the more able students at KS2 Whole-school approach: conducting e-learning across subjects Xianggang Putonghua Yanxishe Primary School of Science and Creativity Entry Point: Starts from the more able students at KS2 Whole-school approach: conducting e-learning across subjects School Sharing on Curriculum Planning and Resource Management Sharing by Ms Debbie Chan Sharing by Ms Shirley Lit

12 Curriculum PlanningLearning and Teaching strategies Resources 1.What is the entry point / a focus of your school in introducing e-learning resources? 3.What are the ways to manage the classroom when using e- resources? 5.What are the ways to manage / develop e- learning resources effectively? 2.What are the administrative measures to facilitate e-learning at your school? 4.What are the different purposes of using e- learning resources in your school? 6.What are the ways to solve technical problems in the classroom? Share the insights you have gained in addressing the following issues: 12

13 Core value of using e-resources Teachers:  provide flexibility in designing learning and teaching activities  promote materials adaptation to cater for students’ diverse learning needs, abilities and interests  promote interaction among learners and teachers 1. The advantages of using e-resources: Students:  motivate and engage learners with different learning styles through the use of multi-media resources  encourage self-directed learning  connect learners with the world through the use of Internet 13

14 Core value of using e-resources 2.The interaction/communication among learners and with teachers is more important than merely communicating with a computer  Classroom creates a platform for human-human interaction, which should always override human-technology interaction  It is important to maintain student-teacher/ student- student interaction in the classroom 14

15 Core value of using e-resources 3.The purpose of using technology is to facilitate language learning  Right Technology at the Right Time for the Right Task  ensure the use of e-resources could facilitate learning and teaching and achieve the learning objectives  avoid using IT for the sake of using IT 15

16 Concluding Remarks The place of e-learning: Having a clear purpose in mind when using e-resources, e.g. making the lessons more motivating to Ss, facilitating Ss’ understanding Using e-resources both inside and outside the classroom The place of e-learning: Having a clear purpose in mind when using e-resources, e.g. making the lessons more motivating to Ss, facilitating Ss’ understanding Using e-resources both inside and outside the classroom Priority setting: Setting priority in integrating e-resources into the English curriculum, e.g. begin with one level, one language skill or one key stage Capacity building among team members Effective resource management Devising administrative measures to ensure good preparation and smooth implementation Priority setting: Setting priority in integrating e-resources into the English curriculum, e.g. begin with one level, one language skill or one key stage Capacity building among team members Effective resource management Devising administrative measures to ensure good preparation and smooth implementation 16
