The existing framework of teachers' information technology (IT) training in Hong Kong, with a series of programmes aiming to develop teachers' IT competency at Basic (BIT), Upper Intermediate (UIT) and Advanced (AIT) Levels, was launched under the Five-year Information Technology in Education (ITEd) Strategy in 1998. With the inception of the IT in education strategy in 2004, it is anticipated that more emphasis should be centered upon using IT to enhance teaching and learning as well as the development of students' information literacy and high-order thinking. In light of this, revamping the teacher professional development framework is thus of paramount importance.
A Joint Consultation Service Team (JCST) from CUHK, HKBU, HKIED and HKU has been formed and is now undertaking a consultancy service for Information Technology in Education Section, EMB. The outcome of this service would be a proposal for the revamp of teachers' information technology (IT) training framework. Thus, this consultation seminar endeavours to solicit opinions from the stakeholders and to establish a rapport and a dialogue with frontline teachers regarding the proposed revamped framework.
Team members: Allan H.K. Yuen, Sandy S.C. Li, S.C. Kong, and S.W. Pun
This seminar aims to introduce the first draft of the proposed revamped framework to school principals and frontline teachers. Participants are encouraged to give feedback on the draft.
