The implication of IT teaching is discussed and projected to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government’s policy on IT teaching in primary schools. The paper is presented along with a 7-minute documentary video about the experience of IT teaching of the lecturer in a primary school classroom. In-depth interview is conducted on her expectation, problems encountered and her opinions on IT Teaching. Copyright © 2000 The Association for Advancement of Computing in Education.
