The advantages of using the technologies of instruction is gradually being recognised in the field of education in Hong Kong. There has been increasing evidence of the effectiveness of carefully designed, high quality multimedia production used either as an integral part of classroom instruction or as the principal means of individualised learning. In our recent venture in the production of CD ROM for junior primary school children to teach the underlying rules guiding the learning process of Chinese characters, we emphasised the need for a detailed plan for instruction. The design for instruction should cater for (1) satisfactory learning to take place, and (2) meaningful and interesting learning experience. How these two objectives can be achieved will be discussed in detail. Copyright © 2000 The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
