Abstract

With the current curriculum reform in Hong Kong, teachers are encouraged to provide flexibility in school-based curriculum development to satisfy the varied needs of students, and to support students in learning how to learn. Information technology for interactive learning is recommended as one of the key tasks to be incorporated into curriculum planning. This paper explores how synchronised multimedia can be used to enhance scientific understanding of food preparation techniques in the study of home economics. It describes how multimedia can enhance the technique of demonstration and cater to learner diversity. A learner-focused approach is adopted, helping learners to learn independently and to make decisions in their best interests during the learning process. Copyright © 2003 HEIA.
