Abstract

The aim of this study is to obtain a knowledge profile on Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) materials for Hong Kong primary mathematics. A searching was conducted to identify possible locations of such resources in Hong Kong and overseas. Related titles were collected and categorized. Collected materials were categorized and evaluated. Categorization was done with reference to the primary mathematics curriculum in Hong Kong. An evaluation form was designed with special attention to the local context. A preliminary evaluation on these teaching and learning materials was conducted. The inadequacies of the packages for teaching and learning identified are: (1) needs and knowledge of teachers in teaching are rarely consulted; (2) inadequate research effort to address individual difference and automatic guidance; and (3) CAL systems are rarely field tested for improvement.
