In this project, our goal is to provide our professional service to develop training programme with elective courses to help prepare pre-service teachers at HKU for future CT teaching in schools in collaboration with CoolThink@JC. Here are our proposed objectives for achieving the goals:
1. Explore how to implement computational thinking education to schools at all levels (kindergarten, primary and secondary) and develop competences of pre-service teachers in teaching computational thinking for problem-solving;
2. Expand our HKU pre-service teachers’ training programme which help develop teachers’ technological, pedagogical and content knowledge in CT;
3. Examine how these pre-service teachers change their perception of CT education over time.
The project aims to:
The purpose of this project is to obtain baseline data about understanding and interest in information policy and to ascertain what information policies exist in Hong Kong schools. The researchers are also interested in what policy making processes have been adopted and who takes responsibility for creating the policy.
A consortium for APEC Cyber Education Cooperation(ACEC) has formed under the auspices of the APEC Education Foundation to undertake a project to make available to teachers and administrators in APEC member economies information and services to improve the use of ICT in education.
The purposes of the consortium are as follows:
1. Engage in projects that help to narrow the digital divide in the APEC region.
2. Make available to teachers and administrators in the APEC region information and services to improve education, in particular the use of ICT.
3. Coordinate the work of various APEC economies to enhance multilateral educational cooperation in the region and avoid duplication of projects.
The Centre for Information Technology in School and Teacher Education (CITE) at the University of Hong Kong has specific responsibilities to develop and provide an e-Educational Leadership in ICT program for the APEC community.
