Abstract

This paper examines the potential of using Web-based technologies in cross-curricular education and identifies the need for a locally based site for teaching and learning. In addition, it also gives an analysis of a local research project called “Project Crucial”, which is developed by the present authors, and discusses the use of Information Technology (IT) to turn schools from “content factories” to higher academic learning and communication centers. This paper is a sequel to the paper “The Development of Understanding in and Resource Development for Cross-curricular Education in Hong Kong’s Secondary Schools, through Application of World Wide Web Networking” (Day & Castro 1996) Copyright © 1998 Social Sciences Research Centre and authors of papers.
