#HKidsMove: an online resource portal to enable future kindergarten teachers’ role in nurturing the physical literacy of young children in Hong Kong
To fully deliver on their roles, early childhood education (ECE) teachers need to be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to promote physical literacy in young children. Physical literacy refers to the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and pursue physical activity (Whitehead, 2013). Across degree programmes in early childhood (i.e., HD, BEd, PGDE), courses prepare pre-service and in-service teachers to become capable of promoting physical literacy in their pupils. These courses typically include hands-on activities that are delivered during face-to-face lessons, and draw from resource portals that had been designed for overseas contexts. The current practice inadvertently constrains our ability to respond to changing environments, and resources tend to have limited suitability to the Hong Kong context. To address these limitations, this project will develop and evaluate a resource portal that would be available, accessible, and used to support alternative learning approaches in the area of physical literacy for future ECE teachers. The resource portal will be evidence-based, theoretically driven, and fit-for-purpose. Students will be engaged as participants and co-developers of content. The project could deliver immediate and long-term impact on students’ learning processes, enabling them to nurture physical literacy of their future pupils.

Early Advancement in Social-emotional Health and Positivity (EASP)
Research into positive education has shed lights into understanding the psychological and social factors associated with individuals’ optimal functioning, psychological well-being, and social-emotional competence (Cheung, Leung, Chung, & Cheung, 2018; Kwong et al., 2018; Li & Lau, 2019). Social-emotional competence refers to skills that help individuals manage their own emotions, understand the feelings and perspectives of others, and interact with others in positive ways. These skills are important as they build the foundation for formal learning in schools, ranging from kindergartens to universities. However, relatively little research attention has been placed on understanding how positive education could improve the way teachers and parents can optimise pre-school children’s social emotional development. This project will draw on the PROSPER framework which stands for Positivity, Relationships, Outcomes, Strengths, Purpose, Engagement, and Resilience (Ambler, Anstey, McCall, & White (2017). This framework includes model of wellbeing and achievement (Positive emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Accomplishment, Strengths and Resilience). Under this framework, we will examine whether the 2x2 model of perceived social influence (Chan et al., 2019) will promote individual wellbeing into teacher education and further empower positive learning environment at preschool and home.
