1 Other Learning Experiences (OLE) Student Learning Profile (SLP)
and Student Learning Profile (SLP) in New Senior Secondary Curriculum

2 Major principles of OLE & SLP will be included in the Senior Secondary Curriculum Guide (firstly in web-version) in 2006

3 Building on Strengths of Basic Education: The Whole Curriculum Framework (Coherence, Fullan)
4 Core Subjects: Chinese Language, English Language, Mathematics, Liberal Studies (45-55%) 2-3 Elective Subjects out of 20 subjects or out of courses in career-oriented studies (20-30%) Other Learning Experiences including moral and civic education, community service, aesthetic and physical development, career- related experiences (15-35%) Moral and Civic Education Intellectual Development Community Service Physical & Aesthetic Development Career-related Experiences NSS Generic Skill Notes for the facilitator This, and the following five slides contain information about the curriculum, pedagogy and assessment focuses of the 334 reform. Different workshop groups will have different levels of understanding of the reform and its purposes, and this will affect how much explanation you need to provide. Pay close attention to the school reports in the introductory session of the workshop and determine which of these six slides you need to discuss with the participants. This slide shows the relationship between the reform of Basic Education in Hong Kong and the structure of the new senior secondary curriculum under 334. The slides which follow outline: the nature of the basic education reform; the 7 curriculum goals which constitute the moral purpose of our reform in Fullan’s terms; the relationship of Other (Essential) Learning Experiences to whole person development; and the guiding principles for designing school-based Other Learning Experiences. Value & Attitude P1- S3 General Studies

4 Proposed NSS Curriculum
Chinese Language, English Language, Mathematics and Liberal Studies as core subjects for ALL students 2 or 3 elective subjects (chosen from a range of 20 elective subjects) Other learning experiences (moral and civic education, community service, aesthetic and physical development, career-related experiences) Career-oriented studies (alternative(s) to elective(s)) 45 – 55% 20 – 30% 15 – 35%

5 1. Aesthetic Development 5% 135 2. Physical Development
Other Learning Experiences (suggested time allocation breakdown over 3 years) Minimum Hours 1. Aesthetic Development 5% 135 2. Physical Development 3. Moral and Civic Education 4. Community Service 5. Career-related Experiences

6 Time Arrangement of Other Learning Experiences(OLE)
OLE could be arranged within and outside normal school hours. Instead of rigidly allocating lesson time into a fixed number of lessons per week/ cycle, schools are encouraged to have an overall and flexible planning of lesson time for students throughout the three years of senior secondary education. For example……..

7 For example: Career-related Experiences and Community Service could be arranged after-school, post-examination, weekends, before or during vacations if required Aesthetic Development, Physical Development and Moral and Civic Education are most likely implemented in the form of structured lessons. They could be flexibly built into both ‘weekly/ cycle’ timetable and other timeslots (e.g. an afternoon during weekdays, after school or Saturday) to ensure that students could have the the full opportunities to gain the experience. School examples

8 Why OLE? Expected Outcomes of OLE
Whole Person Development: A balanced development Chinese virtues (Ethics, Intellect, Physical development, Social skills and Aesthetics) Complement the examination subjects/ career-oriented studies Building up life-long capacities: To nurture informed & responsible citizenship To respect for plural values To adopt a healthy living style To develop career aspirations and positive work ethics

9 Moral and Civic Education Aesthetic Development
The Conceptual Framework of Other Learning Experiences in New Senior Secondary Curriculum School Mass Media Overseas ※National education courses/programmes ※ School assemblies ※ Discussion in class teacher periods Suggested forms of experience ※Participation in student organizations ※ Learning different art forms through formal lessons ※ Community arts activities such as attending concerts, visiting art galleries and museums Suggested forms of experience Peer Moral and Civic Education Aesthetic Development To become active, informed and responsible citizens To develop career aspirations and positive work ethics Five Core Values (e.g. Perseverance, Respect for Others, Responsibility, National Identity, Commitment) Generic Skills (e.g. Creativity, Collaboration skills, etc.) Building Lifelong Capacities To respect for plural values To adopt a healthy living style Social Service Organizations and Groups ※ School-Business partnership programme ※ Career talks ※ Workplace guided visit ※ Job shadowing Suggested forms of experience ※ Project learning on future careers Natural Environment Physical Development Career-related Experiences Suggested forms of experience ※ Structured PE lessons ※ Sports days Community Service Family Religious Organizations Suggested forms of experience ※ Visit the centres for the deprived communities ※ Be a member in a uniformed group regularly serving the community ※ Clean HK campaigns Industrial and Commercial Organizations Internet

10 Seven Guiding Principles of Designing School-based OLE
School-based Models

11 A key to future success…… ‘Students telling their own stories’
Senior Secondary Student Learning Profile (SLP) A key to future success…… ‘Students telling their own stories’

12 Every student is encouraged to build a Senior Secondary Student Learning Profile

13 What would be in the SLP? e.g.
Personal Particulars of the student School internal results (i.e. from school report cards) Some basic information of Other Learning Experiences List of major awards and achievements gained ‘Student’s Self-Account’ (optional) Basic information

14 Aims of the SLP: Reflects a concern for whole-person development
To motivate learning and engagement To recognize non-academic achievements To give employers and higher education institutions a more complete picture of the individual and his/her achievements

15 Very Basic Information
Other Learning Experiences Student Learning Profile (e.g.) Aesthetic Development Physical Development Moral & Civic Education Community Service Career-related Experiences Participation Achievements Reflections Attributes and Capabilities Very Basic Information

16 OLE Data Collected for the SLP :
Participation (e.g. no. of hours, participating role) Achievements gained (from OLE and outside school) (e.g. Prizes, awards, certificates,….) Reflections (e.g. student self-account) Attributes and Capabilities (e.g. leadership, social skills, … ) [a checklist to choose] Case Example: A school uses SLP as a learning tool ALONGSIDE the recording process

17 What are the existing school-based practice ?
Most schools claimed they have their own system for OLE recording OLE inside the academic report Using different report sheets (non-academic reports) Multiple intelligence ‘Passport’ Portfolio for on-going reflection Record inside the Student Handbook Powerful on-line system Learning diary ……..

18 A Seed Project (2005 – 2007) It aims to:
School-based models in organizing “Other Learning Experiences” and “Student Learning Profile” in SS curriculum It aims to: Collect SLP and OLE good practices Develop subsidiary tool: e.g. e-tools Investigate strategies and effective models in support student learning

19 Way Forward 2nd Phase the Seed Project
Senior Secondary Curriculum Guide Teacher training A web-based learning resource for junior secondary students for demonstration+ OLE Databank Information specific audience, including tertiary institutions, employers, parents, teachers and students

20 Some common Myths/ Misunderstandings about OLE & SLP
SLP is assessment OLE = ECA OLE does not include ECA OLE means abolishing PE lessons Only teachers could take up OLE Highly structured programme means high quality CRE means only work attachment CS means visits to Elderly homes Some common Myths/ Misunderstandings about OLE & SLP Related experiences gained from subjects do not count Experiences gained from ECA has less quality Meeting hours requirement is all we need in OLE All OLEs have to be highly-structured and in the lesson timetable ‘OLE entitlements’ mean everyone have to participate the same programmes OLE needs grading

21 Within Normal School Hours
Example one: PLK 1983 Board of Directors’ College Within Normal School Hours (Proposed time-table for the NSS) PE lessons + structured programmes (40 hrs) – PE Class teacher period (20 hrs) - MCE Building on the existing practice, insert three sessions for OLE programme (Creativity Workshop* - 40 hrs) The content of the workshop will include all five components of the OLE Secondary 4 *work with the Hong Kong Institute of  Contemporary Culture

22 Outside Normal School Hours
Activity curriculum (50 hours approx.) The activity curriculum covers the activities of five domains. They are Arts - Interest - Sports/PE - Leadership - Services 10 compulsory ECA sessions (20 hrs) + self-managed time (30 hrs) As a policy of ECA, students are required to participate in every domain throughout the three years of school life. Totally ‘50 hrs participation’ is the recommended indicator (10 hrs on average for each domain). OLE hours = = 150 hours ( = 405 hr)

23 The time table PE lesson Class Teacher period Creativity workshop Proposed practice

24 Extra-curricular Activities(ECA)……
Example two: St. Stephen’s Girls’ College Within Normal School Hours Secondary 4 PE lessons (40 hrs) - PE Assembly / Class teacher period (40 hrs) - MCE Arts Education (e.g. Music, Visual arts ……) (20 hrs) - AD Religious Education (40 hrs) - MCE Outside Normal School Hours Extra-curricular Activities(ECA)……

25 Assembly Music Lesson PE Lessons RE Lessons

26 More than 40 Extra-curricular Activities:
Art and Photography Club Astronomy Club Charity Committee Chinese Society Christian Fellowship Community Youth Club Dance Club Girl Guides…… Every student is required to participate in at least one Extra-curricular activity. OLE hours = ECA = above 150 hrs ( =405hr)

27 Case Example three: An authentic plan of AD in OLE
A school with 24 classes. 1 Music teacher + 2 Visual Arts teachers. 30 lessons each teacher per cycle (totally 90 lessons of manpower). Students’ learning would be complemented by arts activities held outside formal lessons such as attending music/arts performances, visiting galleries and art museums, participating in community arts activities. Level Subjects offered No. of lessons / cycle Junior Secondary Music + Visual Arts 4 classes x 4 lessons x 3 levels = 48 Senior Secondary 5% Aesthetics development in OLE 4 classes x 2 lessons x 3 levels = 24 Electives Music OR Visual Arts 1 class x 4 lessons x 3 levels = 12 Total: 84

28 Existing Curricular Arrangement approaches
High Structure Event-based Approach Curriculum-based Approach OLE Programmes Low Pre-defined Content High Pre-defined Content Activity-based Approach Project-based Approach Low Structure

29 This approach aims to design a highly structured, ‘pre-packaged’ curriculum to incorporate most elements in OLE. Schools adopting this approach, usually have a strong tradition in testing out the curriculum among teachers through years.

30 This approach is usually adopted to create a structured framework/ ‘scaffold’ for slotting different kinds of activities for OLE into the school timetable. The strengths of this approach is its flexibility to change any programmes relatively easily due to changes of situations over time.

31 This approach is distinguished from the ‘pre-packaged’ Curriculum-based approach, by its non-sequential nature for OLE. NSS students would have the flexibility to a wide variety of activities. Usually schools will have a strong ECA tradition and policy to ensure entitlements and quality.

32 This approach is adopted when schools have been enjoying a strong project learning culture in junior secondary students. Four main elements are usually found in implementing OLE, engagement, fun, learning, and ‘products that matter’ (from Harvard Project Zero).

33 Career-related Experiences.
Cheryl has been going through 3 years of senior secondary education from 2009 to 2012 An example for using an e-tool Adventure Programme National Programme Learning Life for Whole Person Development Academic Studies Physical Education Community Service Career-related Experiences.

34 Five Core Values: Generic Skills:e.g.
Through these learning experiences, to nurture… Five Core Values: Perseverance Respect for Others Responsibility National Identity Commitment Generic Skills:e.g. Communication Creativity Critical Thinking Collaboration
