Resource-based learning environment: Approaches of teaching in primary classrooms

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This research studied how resource-based learning environment (RBLE) with multimedia resources facilitates students to develop understanding of “Hong Kong Economics”. The study established an RBLE by creating authentic contexts, selecting appropriate resources and tools, and adopting necessary scaffolds. Three classes of students aged 11-12 were involved in learning of the different sub-topics in various approaches: a learner-centred approach with individual computer; a teacher-centred approach with one single teacher computer; and an interactive approach of group use of a computer. The analysis included video-taped lessons and interview responses, with a finding that deep learning is effected from a more learner-centred approach.
