Learning: Development, Evidence and Impact
Dr Yeung Siu Sze (Assistant Professor/PS)
Dr Ng Mei Lee (Assistant Professor/ECE)
The project team has developed and evaluated a literacy play kit on English language learning to be used by parents at home. The kit, composed of a play manual, learning materials and a website, has been used by more than 150 parents in Hong Kong to engage their young children in home literacy play. Scientific evaluation of the kit has shown that the kit is able to enhance children’s English language learning, home literacy practice and parent-child relationship in Hong Kong families. In this seminar, the speakers will share the development and evaluation of the kit and present impacts created by the KT project.
