Making Learning Accessible with Technology (EAL students)

We will see the use of Microsoft immersive technologies and how these tools are helping EAL learners. Tools like immersive reader, dictation, assessments, Office Lens which support listening, reading, writing and speaking.

Rethinking Your Digital Life Curriculum
Many school educators and leaders are striving to develop a cohesive digital citizenship curriculum that will empower the students to be balanced and principled “digizens”.  

This year as CDNIS celebrates our 12 years of 1:1 personal device programme, we have decided to create a newer, more relevant Digital Life Curriculum.  

In this workshop, I will present how we involve the community to re-write a student-centred Responsible Use Agreement and design a comprehensive digital citizenship curriculum.  

Participants will take away some useful strategies and resources to support the building of a new digital citizenship curriculum for their own school and classrooms.

With Technology: Differentiation In A Layered Way
Tech tools can be integrated into our classrooms in a layered way for differentiation. From the most basic way of replacing our traditional task, to the more creative way of enhancing our tasks, all the way up to the most unconceivable way of transforming the tasks...there is a systematic method for teacher to choose the best fit apps, and design the best fit tasks.

I will take my Chinese class as an example, introducing how I use multiple tech tools (apps, extensions, add-ons) 'in a layered way' to maximise students' engagement and creativity in learning. I will also share how do these tools effectively help with differentiated learning in 3P (present, process and product) ways.
