Resource Package on “The Use of Mobile Devices for Conducting Science (S1-3) Practical Activities” A home learning activity - “Sound”
To facilitate the promotion of STEAM education, the Education Bureau has all along been enhancing the implementation of Science (S1-3) curriculum, with a view to building a solid foundation of science knowledge among students, strengthening their abilities on scientific investigation as well as enhancing their interests in learning science. In tandem, we also promote the use of technology in learning and teaching, including the use of e-learning tools for conducting practical activities and scientific investigation.
The Science Education Section of the Bureau has newly developed a Resource Package "The Use of Mobile Devices for Conducting Science (S1-3) Practical Activities", with contents closely linked to the Science (S1-3) curriculum. The Resource Package includes the following four learning and teaching resources on the use of technology:
“Atmospheric Pressure” – An out-of-classroom learning activity
“Effervescence” – A scientific investigation
“Reaction Time” – A collaborative learning activity
“Sound” – A home learning activity
Student worksheets, experimental videos and reference materials are provided for each of the practical activities in the Resource Package. Teachers could arrange students to watch experimental videos as pre-lesson learning, and conduct experiments and analyse results with the use of mobile devices inside the classroom. Subject to students’ learning needs, teachers could also arrange relevant investigative activities for students to extend their learning in science.
