My name is Chiu Tuen Ming Dicky and I am a secondary teacher in a catholic boy’s school. I teach F3-5 mathematics and A. Maths.. Actually, I love my teaching very much and I think that teaching is meaningful. I not only teach students knowledge but also influence their growth positively. Meanwhile, I can develop the friendship with students and this kind of satisfaction can’t be got in many other professions.

My reflection on Session 5

Interactive visual repretation can really enhance human performance on cognitively complex tasks. This the most impressive sentence in mind in this session. In Hong Kong education system, students are forced to rote a lot of knowledge without any in-depth thinking. Therefore, constructivism learning hardly takes place in HK. Being a teacher, we are responsible to develop the constructivism learning.
In this aspect, the interactive visual representation works and it can really help the students to construct their knowledge on their own.

My proposed fianl assignment

I am a high form mathematics teacher. I would like design a interactive visual representation on the tropic of Euler line. Actually, Euler line is something to do with orthocentre, incentre and circumcentre. By dragging the conners of a triangle, the students can discover the relationship among all these point on a Euler line.

Shape of rain drop

Is it the shape of a rain drop?? Have a guess!!

My reflection on session 4

In this session, I came across a lot of interesting interactive software. The most impressive one is "Iran Map" which I posted on my Blog previously and I will show them to my students later on. I always think that map and atlas are very boring and I never take a look at them more than 5 minutes. But when I tried the Iran Map, I really found it very interesting and kept surfing more information about the whole country Iran. It is incredible that a map is no longer boring at all and I can learn a lot about the country Iran in a very short time. How can learning be interesting and fruitful??
In the later part of this session, I also tried many sotware with the explaination of the leacturer. They are really inspiring and I should take a look at my teaching at a different angle from now on....

Interactive Iran map


My reflection on session 3

In this session, I learnt how to make a story-telling and a vedio which I never come up with them in my teaching. Now, with the help of ICT, a story-telling and vedio are very easy to be produced. In my school, we have many projectors and notebooks, this makes vedio and story-telling possible in my teaching. Through out the whole lesson, I kept thinking how I can integrate them in my mathematics teaching and how the students think and react to them which they never come across. Above all, how such interactive and vivid "stuff" can arouse their motivation and enhance their learning is my key concern as they will take the HKCEE examination in F.5. I think it is really the time to change our teaching style and habit.

reflectin on session 2

" Visuals can present data, information, reality, knowledge, ideas, emotions,… " is the most impressive sentence I learnt in this session. Actually, the traditional learning can't "cater" the need of students now. Reading book can no longer motivate or inspire students' thinking. With the help of ICT, vedio and story-telling software are not difficult to be produced and they can brainstorm the students effectively. Above all, students can find learning enjoyable, no long boring. This, in turn, makes the learning far more effective and fruitful, and students can equip themselves well to face the challenges in this "knowledge era".
