HKIEd Partners with Cable TV to Nurture Children's Talent
The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) has partnered with Cable TV to raise the awareness among parents, educators and the public in developing children’s potential talent.
Earlier in March, the Institute co-organised a discussion forum entitled “原來孩子係天才” with Cable TV at which guest speakers discussed meaningful learning experiences from their childhoods while sharing their insights into how to inspire children and develop their potential. The speakers were Professor Anthony B. L. Cheung, President of HKIEd; Mr Ronald Y. C. Chiu, Executive Director of i-CABLE; Dr Grace Lam, Assistant Professor of the Department of Psychological Studies at HKIEd; The Hon Audrey Eu Yuet-mee, Member of the Legislative Council; Mr Shih Wing-ching, Director of the Centaline Group; and Mr Chan Yik-hei, “Son of the star”. Parents and educators on the floor also actively participated in the discussion.
Highlights of the forum goes on air on 24 March on the i-CABLE Finance Info Channel. The full version is scheduled for 8 pm on 31 March and 1 April on the i-CABLE Live News Channel. An archived version will be broadcast at www.i-cable.com.
In addition, Dr Grace Lam also serves as a guest host in the 12-episode programme (《原來孩子係天才》), which is broadcast on the i-CABLE Finance Info Channel on Saturdays from 7:30 pm to 8 pm beginning 31 March. She will offer her professional advice on possible ways to kindle the inherent talents of our capable, confident and curious children.
