    The new season of this programme consists of eight episodes and introduces eight groups of teachers who were honoured with the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence in 2016 and 2017, along with their award-winning initiatives. The show takes the form of a documentary, visiting each school to learn how the teaching teams optimise their strategies to match curriculum reforms. As society continues to develop, teachers are actively combining new ideas and technologies to implement their teaching philosophies, so as to enhance student interest and ability in learning, as well as to foster an environment in which teaching and learning complement each other.

    It is Not as Simple as 123

    Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence (2015/2016)
    (Mathematics Education Key Learning Area)
    School: HKUGA Primary School
    Awardees: Sung Po-wa, Chung Kim-fung

    In addition to memorising formulas and doing calculation exercises, games can also be a part of math class – playing can lead to enthusiastic discussions all the same. Mr. Sung and Mr. Chung have selected a group of students with higher math ability to participate in an assessment-free “enrichment course”. The teachers turn daily life incidents into math games, problem solving tasks, and research projects to challenge their students and stimulate their thinking, so as to let them understand that mathematics is not just about calculating the correct answer.

    The “enrichment course” involves research projects which look into traffic problems and even landing device experiments. The two teachers encourage their students to ask questions, look for the flaws in their processes themselves, work together to find solutions, and summarise their results in reports. As the course progresses, in addition to subconsciously integrating all the mathematical concepts they have learned, the students are able to exercise their creativity to the fullest, and also become better at expressing themselves.

    Although not every student finds Math fascinating, after taking the amusing “enrichment course” for three years, students will automatically take it upon themselves to solve the problems they encounter and learn proactively. Mr. Sung and Mr. Chung hope to help capable students shine in Math and inspire them to become creative students who are eager to learn and love to think.

      Award:
      Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence (2016/2017)
      (Guidance and Discipline)
      School: Baptist (Sha Tin Wai) Lui Ming Choi Primary School
      Awardees: Wan Siu-kwong; Wan Hin-chiu; Kwan Si-lun, Alan; Choi Ka-wai; Wong Pui-sze

      This primary school has 24 “Positivity Promoters”, each with their own unique traits and adorable persona, such as a loving angel, a judge who defends fairness, and an imaginative painter. In addition to being popular among the students, they also serve as their role models. The “Positivity Promoters” are not actually real people, but cartoon characters designed by five teachers to represent 24 “character strengths”. Promoting positive education with a model which advocates “learning, living, teaching, and integrating”, the school uses diverse strategies in a flexible manner to help students understand positivity. The teachers deeply believe that everyone is capable of commanding their “Character strengths”. As long as they are able to exercise them flexibly and appropriately, they can make positive changes. The main purpose of positive education is to improve the growth mind-set of students, and to enhance their ability to overcome difficulties and face challenges. The key lies in the effective use of “character strengths”, which will give rise to a positive learning environment.

      It All Started from Trees

      Award:
      Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence (2016/2017)
      Science Education Key Learning Area

      School: The Chinese Foundation Secondary School
      Awardees: Ho Tik-shun; Leung Yue-shan, Jennifer; Chan Pik-ying; Chung Cheuk-hung, Vincent

      This is a relatively young school. Taking heed from the Chinese saying, “It takes 10 years to grow a tree, but 100 years to cultivate a person,” trees were planted all around the school since its establishment. The thousand-odd species of plants that have flourished after a decade have become the key element of the school’s “student cultivation” programme.

      Beginning by acquainting their students with plants, the teachers go on to make them understand the impact of biodiversity on the environment, and even the importance of sustainable development. The curriculum includes classroom and outdoor learning, research projects, community activities, and more. The school hopes that its students can fully integrate scientific knowledge with life experiences, so that they can become “citizen scientists” who promote environmental messages in the community and give back to society.

      Students learn about the plants growing around their school through a specially designed mobile learning platform from Form One. They then participate in the compilation of a plant database for the school, and even the entire Siu Sai Wan district. This “Green Path” is one of the former students’ favourite parts of the school. They all remember what they saw and heard along it: “The weeping paperbark is the birds’ runway...” “After it finishes raining, it is paradise for fungi...” “Our greenhouse also operates under the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ principle...” Teacher Vincent Chung is also a former student at the school, and has an emotional attachment to it. He believes that the school’s pleasant atmosphere is what led him to embark on the path of science. “When we were in Form Six, every student had their own experiment kit. Everyone treasured them and put them in the locker. It was at that time that I began to develop my identity as a scientist."

      It all started from trees.

      Award:
      Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence - Certificate of Merit (2015/2016)
      (Special Educational Needs)

      Awardees: Chan Hoi-yan; Keung Yuen-man; Tse Cheuk-hang, Henry; Sing Siu-ying; Choi Pik-ling

      Deaf and mute are not synonymous. Nonetheless, to people who are deaf, being able to speak does not mean that one likes to speak, and being able to hear does not necessarily mean that one can hear clearly or understand what is being said. The road to learning has always been full of obstacles for students who are deaf, as they have difficulties keeping up in class. This, in turn, directly affects their future development and employment. In a time when traditional inclusive education remains stuck in a rut, a group of primary school teachers have decided to swim against the current by implementing the “Sign Bilingualism & Co-enrolment Education Programme in Deaf” despite having only limited resources. They are committed to breaking down the learning barriers faced by students who are deaf, so as to enable them and their hearing peers to learn together in a fair environment, as well as interact and influence each other. This naturally gives rise to an inclusive atmosphere.

      Kai-chung and Ka-po, who are both deaf, are good friends with their hearing classmate, Him-him. They converse verbally sometimes, and communicate using sign language at other times. Everybody mixes so well inside and outside of the classroom that outsiders have difficulty distinguishing those who are deaf and those who are not. The two students have unbridled imaginations about the future.

      Deputy Principal Chan and Ms. Choi are the pioneers of this programme. They did not knowing any sign language at all 12 years ago, but have since become quasi-experts. Their undying enthusiasm has enabled them to build and foster mutual understanding with collaborating teachers who are deaf. Through the accumulation of experience and active promotion, the school has attracted a group of passionate young teachers who will carry the programme into the future.

      Journey to the Math Kingdom

      Award:
      Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence (2015/2016)
      (Mathematics Education Key Learning Area)
      School: Ng Wah Catholic Primary School
      Awardees: Cherk Fung-ngan, Lau Hiu-yam, Chan Ka-yiu, Wong Man-leung

      To make their students fall in love with Math, the teachers of this school have banded together to rack their brains and come up with a series of extremely creative teaching materials. Through active learning, they have made mathematics visible, audible, and tangible, so as to enable the students to retain what they have learned.

      Ms. Cherk Fung-ngan, the Head of Math, regularly meets with teachers who teach the same grade level at “joint class planning sessions” to discuss the learning difficulties their students are having. They then formulate solutions to address these problems and devise diversified teaching strategies and learning activities to boost their students’ interest in Math. Ms. Lau Hiu-yam, who is full of imaginative ideas, can be considered the creative director of the Math Department. She always creates games that are relevant to the topics being taught, enabling students to subconsciously learn math-related knowledge through play. Even though the teaching materials need to be prepared from scratch, Ms. Lau is more than happy to take on all the tasks involved, from design and illustration to printing. She skilfully infuses math knowledge into the games, enabling students to overcome their fear of Math and learn while having fun.

      The Math teachers of this school began producing their own educational television programmes six years ago. Mr. Chan and Mr. Wong even made their acting debuts as the God of Math and King of Math respectively to teach mathematics using a humorous approach. It became a huge hit with the students. These educational videos featuring eventful plots, animations, and pop songs gradually gave rise to the “Math Kingdom”. The teachers assume pivotal roles in the kingdom, while the students are the realm’s subjects. This new identity motivates the students to enthusiastically participate in every activity held in Math class.

      Award:
      Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence (2016/2017)
      (Science Education Key Learning Area)
      School: Baptist Wing Lung Secondary School
      Awardee: Ling See-yan

      “If you spend more time teaching students how to walk by themselves instead of holding their hands every step along the way, they might start off being a bit slow. But after they get the hang of it, they might even be able to run on their own. This will only make learning more effective.” It is this realisation which led Ms. Ling See-yan to adopt “self-learning” in her teaching style.

      The high school curriculum is intense. The time to complete the basic syllabus is already insufficient, yet the “self-learning” approach Ms. Ling advocates requires students to design their own experiments using extracurricular materials, so as to enable them to understand the key points of each lesson and to boost their proactivity. Some of the scientific principles in the curriculum actually only need to be explained by teachers in the classroom, but in order to let her students understand them more thoroughly, Ms. Ling conducts additional experiments.

      Ms. Ling likes to incorporate everyday life into experiments – for example, making popcorn and simulating car crashes – to better engage her students. Meanwhile, she also works outside the confines of the syllabus, exposing junior students to equipment and knowledge normally only accessible to senior students when the need arises. Ms. Ling holds a meticulous attitude towards science. She also expects her students to treat science class seriously.

      (Arts Education Key Learning Area)
      School: Tang Shiu Kin Victoria Government Secondary School
      Awardee: Kwan Lu Pui-ling

      “Parents feel that art students will end up being beggars. Students think that they don't need to spend much time studying by taking this subject.” Kwan Lu Pui-ling (Mrs Kwan), who has been teaching Visual Arts for more than 30 years, is never discouraged by the misconceptions that parents and students generally hold for art. She uses her catchphrase “Try! Try!” to remind her students, as well as herself, that giving up is not an option.

      Under the current education system, students may lack the space to exercise their creativity and tend to think that they have no artistic talent. However, Mrs Kwan believes that artists are not born but made, and knowing how to appreciate art is the key to a vibrant life.

      Fate works in mysterious ways. More than 30 years ago, Mrs Kwan let slip an opportunity of enrolling in a design programme and became a teacher after graduating from the faculty of education. While her dream of becoming a graphic designer remains unrealised, she has become her students’ life designer, guiding them to find their life goals through art.

      Award: Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence - Certificate of Merit (2015/2016) (Curriculum Leadership)
      School: Fanling Kau Yan College
      Awardees: Cheung Po-che; Tam Oi-mei, Amy; Poon Suk-kwan; Lai Suk-han, Jennifer; Wong Wah-chun

      In 2012, Fanling Kau Yan College decided to carry out a large-scale curriculum reform and introduce a teaching practice which promotes “self-directed learning” across the entire school. The school sent its teachers abroad and to mainland China for professional exchanges. Implemented step by step over the past six years, the teaching practice has been adopted by every class level and every subject at school.

      The teaching practice is developed upon the concept of “pre-lesson enquiry.”. Teachers would prepare materials summarizing the key ideas of each lesson for students’ preview. Students will then conduct discussions and share their thoughts on the materials during the lesson. To encourage peer learning, students would be divided into groups of four with mixed abilities and personalities. The student with higher ability will be assigned the role of team leader and lead the discussion.

      The school firmly believes that with a concerted effort, teachers can better address the differences in learning ability among students and elevate the overall effectiveness of learning and teaching. Making every student successful is their ultimate goal.
