In the past months, the team collaborated with teachers to explore the possibility of applying technology to enhance teaching and learning experiences. We would like to share the case studies here:
Evaluation of the ClickShare in SHS PBL tutorials
To enhance the in class sharing, collaboration and interaction between students and teacher.
We evaluated a wireless presentation system, ClickShare, in the PBL tutorials. Both student and teacher shared materials from their devices to the big screen in a class concurrently at their own pace. Moodle plugin Flexible Sections format is introduced to the HKU Moodle to shorten the menu bar for the PBL sections.
Enhance learning activities in a PGDE class
To enhance teaching and learning experiences with technologies.
We participated and explored the learning activities in a PGDE class.
A certain technologies are suggested such as Padlet, Conceptbaord (an app available on Chrome browser Web Store) for student collaboration not only in class, also can let them to continue discussion or enhancement out of the class. Peer review function in Moodle (an activity called “Workshop”) could be used to motivate student learning also.
