The Principles of Life-wide Learning Activities in Schools
Complementary to classroom learning, life-wide learning activities have been widely accepted as an integral component of school education for fulfilling the educational aims. All along, life-wide learning activities have been taking place in various forms in schools, such as extra-curricular activities, co-curricular activities, field trips and study tours outside Hong Kong. It is termed differently across countries, however, referring to similar meaning. This course aims to equip serving teachers, in particular, teachers responsible for managing and organizing such activities, to comprehend and evaluate the aim and principle of these activities to enhance learning of students.
Designing and Implementing Life-wide Learning Activities
Most teachers and parents agree that education for their next generation should be balanced and whole person education. It has been widely acknowledged that different forms of after school or co-curricular activities are definitely conducive to students’ whole person development. Life-wide Learning Activities (LWL), connecting learning inside and outside the classroom, play an important role in achieving the above-mentioned aim. This course aims to facilitate participants, particularly the co-ordinators of LWL in primary and secondary schools, to enhance their competence of managing and organizing such activities.
Understanding different forms of Life-wide Learning Activities
Life-wide Learning Activities (LWL) cover a variety of activities, from indoor to outdoor, stationary to active, local to non-local, aesthetic to sports, etc. They are all conducted by schools outside classrooms to achieve targets that are more difficult to attain through classroom learning. This course will help participants' understand different forms of activities and thus enable them to better select and organize appropriate LWL activities to suit their students’ need.
