“There are more than two billion social network users connected together. There are more than two billion potential teachers from around the world who can share their experience and learn together. Everyone can be your teacher!” – Hong Kong | daily edventures:

Chu Tsz Wing, Teacher at the Hong Kong Institution of Education Jockey Club Primary School - Hong Kong


Because of our Chinese tradition, it is not easy for teachers in Hong Kong to change from teacher-centered learning to student-centered learning,” says Chu Tsz Wing. “With the use of technology in the classroom, we have more choices and opportunities to access knowledge or even contribute to it.”
And Chu has certainly done his share of contributing to educational innovation in Hong Kong, and beyond.  As the IT panel head of The Hong Kong Institute of Education Jockey Club Primary School, Chu is responsible for the use of information technology in both school administrative works and students’ learning.
He was nominated as a coach teacher at the 2011 Microsoft Partners in Learning Global Forum 2011 in Washington, DC and his awards have been many, including the “Innovative Teachers of Hong Kong,” “The Best of the Teachers” in “e-Learning Best Practice 2010 Competition” and the “Microsoft Most Valued Teacher” in 2009 and 2008. He is a proponent of using tablet technology in his classroom, and this approach has garnered much media attention, especially in Hong Kong.
Today, Chu shares his thoughts on using tablet technology in the classroom, the benefits of self-directed learning, and why technology has enhanced collaboration in his students’ daily work.
