Establishing a Scalable Network of Knowledge Building Schools

CITE, HKU has launched a series of research and development projects called 'Learning Community Projects' since 2001. The aim of these projects is to support and investigate the development of life-long learning abilities in group collaborative learning contexts using technology, focusing on finding the relationships between the development of enquiry and knowledge-building abilities and the changing group dynamics and interaction patterns of the learners. The project integrates a web discussion platform called 'Knowledge Forum' (KF) into secondary school curriculum, this project hopes to develop better thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills of students, and to enhance their knowledge-building ability. The various phases of this series of projects until 2008 can be found from the projects page from September 2008. The KB Online Course has summarized valuable knowledge from these earlier projects. From September 2008, the project has extended its scope to become the Professional Network for Knowledge Building in Schools.

Establishment of a Professional Development Network for Knowledge Building in Schools

PIProf. Nancy Law & Dr. Carol Chan

This project is funded by the Education Bureau and it aimed at supporting schools on developing and scaling up knowledge building pedagogy, sustaining teacher professional growth, and improving student learning through a knowledge building teacher network (KBTN).

Since September 2008, this project becomes part of the University-School Support Project (USP) under the School-based support services (SBSS) titled "Professional Development Network for Knowledge Building in Schools". The project leaders are Prof. Nancy Law and Dr. Carol Chan, Associate Professor of Faculty of Education. The USP project has started in September 2008 and is expected to be completed in August 2011. A team of expert knowledge-building teachers are seconded to EDB to assist participating teachers in implementing the knowledge building approach together with the project team from CITE, HKU. Six half-time seconded teachers (STs) and more than 60 participating teachers from 25 schools (11 primary schools, 13 secondary schools, 1 special school) have been recruited for this academic year. Knowledge Forum®, which is hosted at CITE (http://kf.cite.hku.hk), is used by teachers and students in the project to facilitate their collaborative knowledge building activities.

Objectives of the project:

  • To motivate teachers and students to work collaboratively on developing knowledge building;
  • To develop repertories of pedagogies and assessment strategies that facilitate knowledge building;
  • To develop a model of teacher network that promotes teacher professional development and quality student learning.
  • To equip students with holistic abilities of inquiry, reading to learn, generic skills, teamwork, IT skills, and life-wide learning, etc.
  • To foster students’ active learning and higher-order thinking
  • To enhance learning and teaching effectiveness

Self-Directed Learning in Science with e-learning Support for Learner Diversity and Smooth Primary-Secondary Transition

PIProfessor Nancy W. Y. LAW

This is a University-School Support Programme funded by Education Bureau. This is a three-year (2014-2017) project. This project aims to provide support to teachers and schools to implement self-directed learning (SDL) in the Science KLA in the upper primary (P.4-6) General Studies and lower secondary (S1-3) Integrated Science subject in Hong Kong schools. Throughout the project period, there will be 40 schools participating in this project.

The capacity building support for SDL encompasses three core areas:

  1. learning and assessment design and implementation for integrating SDL components in the science KLA;
  2. e-Learning support for students’ learning and teachers’ pedagogical design activities for scientific inquiry, and
  3. leadership for organizational change and development for pedagogical and assessment innovation.

The ultimate, overarching goal is to nurture and develop student’s self-directed learning ability and equip them to become confident and capable life-long learners in the 21st century so as to improve students’ self-efficacy and achieve smooth transition from primary to secondary school education in the science KLA.
