CCC Heep Woh College
Background of our students
• Most students come from less well-off
socio-economic background
• 100% of our F.1 intakes belong to Band 1
• The family support is insufficient but
students are generally equipped with high
ability in learning.

Resource allocation in school
2001-2002
All teachers participated in school-based IT
training. As a result, 75% of teachers
obtained IIT and 25% of teachers obtained
UIT.
Teachers paired up to share a laptop which
was provided by school.
Teachers can access network and use
projectors (Part of School funding) in all
classrooms and special rooms.
Data-logging system in laboratory (QEF)
2002-2003
Develop intranet for learning
and teaching
Purchasing laptops for all
teachers through school
funding
Develop tailor-made program
for administration e.g
homework checking system.
Parents can check homework
on school website
2003-2004
Focus on computerization in library
Around 70% of departments usually applied IT in
lesson
Implemented WebSAMS
Student portfolio program
Joined TSA pilot scheme (One of ten pilot schools)
2004-2005
Reconstruct school website and intranet
Updating information restructured into well-organized
management
Develop tailor-made program for administration e.g
Room reservation program; Teachers can reserve a
room from the school web site
School Improvement Project
Two new MMLC rooms, music room, student
activity room, library, staff room, Function Hall,
classroom rooms and etc.
New Desktop computers and projectors were
installed in all classrooms and special rooms.
2005-2006
Participated in the University of Hong
Kong e-leadership program and
developed Student-Teacher (S-T) forum.
Visited different elementary and
secondary schools in Singapore to learn
more about the most advanced
Information Technology in Education.
Principal and assigned teachers also
shared their experiences in the "Hong
Kong International IT in Education
Conference 2006" from 7 to 8 February
2006.
2006-2007
S-T Forum implement in all KLA area
Teacher-Teacher (T-T) Forum
established to discuss hot issues. e.g.
curriculum integration

Teachers personally purchased
upgraded laptops.
Only 6 Public desktop computers and
some laptop computers are provided
to teachers
Focus on students who cannot afford
to buy computers
Three-year Plan for IT development
(Matching fund by EMB, school, QEF)
Replace old computers & install
wireless LAN
Participate in QEF project (3-I project)
Students and teachers will work on project
learning with other students from other
countries. At the end of academic year,
they will visit the college which they work
with.

(2) All eForums will be implemented across all forms
(3) Senior form students can discuss through the
forums and help the junior form students when
they have any problems in each subject matters.
Difficulties encountered
To motivate students to access our
knowledge eForum frequently
To encourage higher form students to act
as teachers to help lower form students
To convince our teachers to build up
similar eForum in different key learning
areas

Proposed Horizontal Learning Thread
(1) Setup virtual classrooms for each subject across
each form instead of individual teacher
(2) Teachers contribute and share their teaching
materials in one virtual classroom established on a
form level basis. For example, in Form 1
Mathematics, we may build up a virtual classroom
for each form.

:
What will be the benefit for students?
(1)Self-learning & assessment - Students can work on
quizzes and exercises at their own pace.
(2)Continuous life-long learning
(3)Better management in a subject – Learning and
teaching material can be retained and accumulated
for next year.
(4)Teachers can share teaching resources with
colleagues
Expected difficulties
(1) Heavier workload among teachers
(2) Ways to motivate colleagues to encourage
more students to participate
Solution
(1) Explain the benefits to teachers in detail
(2) Hold competitions to encourage
students’ participation
Teacher’s experience to motivate students
to use e-forum
1. Discussion topics should be relevant to student’s learning
schedule, so that they can benefit from visiting e-forum.
2. Allocate marks to e-forum participation as part of the
assessment of their learning.
3. Teacher need to motivate them to share their learning with
others.
4. Interesting topics should be posted and good student’s
feedback mentioned in lessons
5. Active participants are rewarded
6. Invite higher form students to help teacher to answer
questions in the forum.
7. Encourage students to discuss the answers to exercises
and quizzes
8. Teacher involvement is important
9. Useful information is circulated in the forum
10. Feedback should be given promptly to student’s queries
Further developments
Forums development
e.g. P-T (Parent –Teacher), A-T (Alumni-Teacher), etc
Knowledge community (e-classroom)
Campus TV (sharing experiences among students,
teachers and parents)
Conclusion
Principal’s Role in IT development is as a
Facilitator
School Level
Suggest direction
Aware of the trends in IT development
Teacher Level
Suggest appropriate IT equipment and
techniques to motivate interactive learning
Encourage teachers to apply for external
resources
Student Level
To widen their horizon though IT
Thank you
Catering for learning differences and establish knowledge community in our School
One of the strategies used in our school to cater for individual learning differences is using information
technology as a learning tool. We have built up a kind of electronic learning platform on our school
intranet-eForum. There are two different approaches. One we called vertical learning thread and the other
we called horizontal learning thread.
Through accumulation of learning experience from student,
freshman can learn better and faster while they access the knowledge community; in fact, this is a
kind of knowledge management for our school.
Vertical Learning thread: catering for learning differences
For the vertical learning thread, we built up three subject-based knowledge eForums in the first stage.
They are Mathematics, Science and Information Technology. Students can work and interact with each
other on the eForum. They can learn more through reading the notes of other students and build upon their
ideas. Moreover, the low achievers can post some questions on the eForum and the higher form students or
some high achievers can act as teachers or experts to answer their questions.
In the second stage, we have built up the eight “Key Learning Area” (KLA) forums.
For example,
teacher will post up a current hot issue for the students to sound out their opinion.
and students can communicate interactively.
Both teachers
Now let us watch a video clip about the sharing of our students about the eForum.
Difficulties encountered:
The difficulties we have encountered are how to motivate more students to visit our eForum frequently and
also how we can encourage higher form students to act as teacher and to work collaboratively. So at the
beginning, teachers may need to answer the questions which were posted up on the eForum by the students
before we have some student helpers. Right now, we have established KLA eForums for students to
access.
Horizontal learning thread: Establishing knowledge management system
For horizontal learning thread, the approach we shall use is called cross class subject setting. I said “we
shall” because we have not implemented yet. We are going to implement very soon since we have just
have the training workshops for our new teachers.
It is a strategy that teachers contribute and share their teaching materials in a same virtual
classroom which established in form based. For example, we may build up a virtual classroom for a
subject in each form. All teachers in that form can upload and contribute their teaching materials
in the virtual classroom so as to accumulate the relevant learning resources for students and other
teachers.
