University Students Supporting School Teachers of Academically At-Risk Students through Educational Technology

During school closures, teachers in less resourceful schools have struggled to cater to the diverse learning needs of academically at-risk students in their class. Without the physical presence of the teacher, these students, lacking the digital resources and rich learning experiences with educational technology, may not know how to stay engaged in the learning and teaching tasks and activities in online learning environments. EdUHK Bachelor of Education (BEd) students, as future teachers, who have been immersed in technology-enabled learning and teaching experiences, will be able to provide technological support to these school teachers to engage their students. By working with and supporting these teachers, EdUHK BEd students have the opportunities to work in actual teaching contexts and have authentic and meaningful learning experiences in local schools. Meanwhile, EdUHK pre-service teachers could support in-service teachers to enhance the digital experiential learning of their students, namely through the portable future classroom this project will offer. Therefore, this project aims to develop a professional learning community of BEd students, FEHD staff and in-service teachers, and enhances student learning engagement and outcomes by providing EdUHK students with the opportunities to support teachers (technically and pedagogically) of academically at-risk students through the experiential learning with state-of-the-art educational technology.
