Technology helps teaching and learning become more meaningful and fun. These workshops will enable participants to understand how important is technology in education. Participants are welcome to choose one of the following workshops.

Chai Ching Sing is a professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research interests are in the areas of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK), teachers’ beliefs, design thinking and students’ learning with Information and Communications Technology (ICT). He has published more than a hundred SSCI papers and served in a number of editorial board as member and associate editor.

TPACK is a theory about teachers’ knowledge that encompasses pedagogical knowledge (PK), content knowledge (CK), and technological knowledge (TK). This set of knowledge helps teachers to teach a subject effectively with the aid of technology. However, using technology to teach effectively can be a challenge for teachers.

This workshop will help teachers build their understanding and upgrade their skills in using technology in classroom effectively.
