Ms Fiona Yung is a primary English teacher at HKUGA Primary School and an experienced eTeacher. She has actively supported the effective integration of eResources into her school curriculum over many years, an experience that proved incredibly helpful when online teaching was suddenly required during class suspension. Fiona quickly adapted to the new mode of online teaching and facilitated her students adjustment to eLearning through a whole-school approach.
In her Webinar presentation, Fiona demonstrates how a systematic approach worked to integrate a number of eResources into the learning routines of primary two English learners. Among the eResources used during the online teaching were Google Drive, YouTube, Epic!, Google Forms and Zoom. At the end of her sharing session, Fiona also introduces Class Dojo as a tool to communicate with students’ parents.
