Hong Kong x Taiwan Open Class on Flipped Learning and Share Start was successfully held on 3 April 2017 in A-School!
Ms. Jenny Leung, our English teacher, opened her grade 8 class for teachers in Hong Kong to share her innovative e-learning pedagogy. In contrast to a traditional teaching approach, students were guided to explore and learn a grammar item in a student-centered approach with the help of technology. With lots of questions prompted by the teacher, students have to discover the answers by themselves and learn actively. Also, during the workshop, Mr. Andy Cheng from Tainan shared his teaching ideas in using Share Start teaching pedagogy with teachers.
Our students were highly praised by teacher visitors on their performance and proficiency. Teacher visitors also commented that this Open Class was a fruitful and meaningful grammar lesson that students could learn grammar in a new, fun and practical way.
We hope that more and more teachers in Hong Kong will be sharing similar practice so that students can be motivated to learn and become a true self-directed and independent learner!
