A Teacher Handbook for Practicing Children Financial Education in Kindergarten Pupils
It is designed to inspire children’s initial concept of money and consumer’s behavior in early childhood stage. Concept of money is not a matter of indoctrination but an usual practice in children’s life. This project could facilitate optimal development in early childhood through a wide range of musical, art, language, physical and sensory activities. By interacting with teachers and parents participating in daily activities in a stimulating learning environment, the children are able to develop and elicit their potential in tackling fundamental financial management skills and establish themselves a formal model of good consumer.
Project Start Year: 2009, Principal Investigator(s): CHENG Yuen Ling
 
Creating a Community of Practice with ICT: An Internet Based Initiative
The project aims to develop a website to demonstrate exemplary cases of integrated curriculum and exemplify the use of ICT in teaching and learning in preschools. The website will demonstrate the ways in which students can become active learners. The website will also facilitate student’s sharing and discussion by its communication board and encourage their communication with lecturer. Professionals from local and overseas (Australia, Taiwan, China, Canada) will share their views and practices of integrating ICT into the teaching and learning of their preschool curriculum through interviews, video recording and conferencing. Some examples of student’s assignment will be uploaded onto the platform for student’s reference in future cohorts.
