This experience-sharing event aims to provide a fitting occasion for Primary and Secondary English Teachers, including NETs to:

  • disseminate their “Seed” project experience in the 2022/23 s.y. and  share effective, innovative practices with participants who are interested in English language literacy development in the 21st  century; and
  • exchange views on innovative pedagogical practices that facilitate the development of students’ English language literacy and the promotion of values education. 

It is hoped that the participants will be enlightened by insights from the plenary sessions and the breakout sharing sessions.

The Native-speaking English Teacher (NET) Section initiated a number of Collaborative Research and Development (“Seed”) projects in the 2022/23 school year to support the implementation of some of the major renewed emphases in the CDC English Language Education KLA Curriculum Guide (P1-S6) (2017) in both primary and secondary schools.  Teachers participating in the following “Seed” projects will share their project experiences:

  • Developing Students’ Creativity, Collaboration and Problem Solving Skills through Creating the Makerspace in the Junior Secondary English Language Classroom;
  • Read to Speak: Developing 21st Century Communication Skills through Interaction with Multiple genres and Multimodal Texts;
  • Thinking Routines for Writing: Optimising the Writing Experience Within and Beyond the English Language Classroom;
  • Building Character through Characters: Implementing Social and Emotional Learning in the English Language Classroom through Stories;
  • REEL to REAL: Learning English and Developing 21st Century Skills through Film-making in Key Stage 2;
  • Speaking to Writing: Using Oral Performance as a Foundation to the Writing of Texts in Key Stage 2; and
  • Glocalisation: Developing Students’ Language and Intercultural Competence through a Multicultural Language Arts Programme in KS2.

In support of the campaign on “Promoting Positive Values and Attitudes through English Sayings of Wisdom 2022/23”, “Week of Positivity”, a signature school-based activity, was organised in primary and secondary schools.  Teachers from some of these schools will share ideas for promoting positive values and attitudes in the context of English Language Education in their schools.
