This paper reports the present scenario of using computer and traditional instructional media for primary class teaching in HKSAR. 323 primary teachers who have attended staff development seminars and refresher training workshops in the use of IT in education were invited to provide information for the study. The teaching time in a week and the teaching modes with 16 instructional media including computer technologies were examined. Results showed that textbook, blackboard and printed text materials remain the dominant instructional media in current practice of teaching in primary schools. The use of computer technology is rare despite the expectation that computer and computer-related technologies will make learning more effective and efficient and even to replace the traditional “educational technologies”. The findings also indicated that technologies were used mostly as information delivery tools. Teaching strategies were limited to mass teaching and teaching-centered presentation. This phenomenon may have relationship with the ineffective training in the use of IT as indicated in many researches though courses in this area have been included in most teacher education programmes around the world. The last section of this paper will discuss on the contents of IT courses and to suggest a teaching model of using IT in education for pre-service teachers education programmes.
