Applying Wireless Information Technology in Field Trips--A Hong Kong Experience
So, Koon Keung Teddy
Australian Educational Computing, v19 n2 p3-7 Dec 2004
In 2002, the Honk Kong government launched a pilot scheme "e-school bag" promoting the use of wireless technology in ten primary and ten secondary schools for classroom teaching and learning. In 2003, a secondary school successfully received a grant from the Quality Education Fund (QEF) to implement a wireless network for outdoor field trips. This paper shares the experience generated from one school in Honk Kong using wireless technology, bluetooth, notebook computers, and Pocket PCs in increasing the interactivity of teaching and learning in outdoor education. Benefits, limitations, solutions, and future developments are presented. It is hoped that the experience gained from this project is beneficial to other schools experimenting the use of wireless technology in teaching and learning activities.
