This paper investigates the students' self-regulated learning in primary education when traditional teaching method, which is teacher-centered in a classroom, is replaced with online educational resources. Various online educational resources such as videos, simulations and learning games are readily available on the Web. In addition, mobile and classroom technologies, such as portable devices can be considered as teaching tools in education. The good use of these educational resources and technologies cannot only assist students' formal classroom learning, but also cultivate the self-regulated learning of students. The i-Classroom implemented in a primary school adopted a new teaching method, which made use of the online educational resources and information technology, to achieve this goal. A survey (Sample size N = 149) was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of promoting self-regulated learning in three key aspects: learning motivation, planning and management, and self-monitoring. The result shows the current situation of the self-regulated learning of primary school students and discusses how i-Classroom can help students to enhance their ability to conduct self-regulated learning.
