    HKU Faculty of Education launches the “Knowledge Exchange Video Series (Preschool Series)” to share practical parenting tips

    Preschool children between the ages of three and six develop rapidly in language, emotional and social aspects, but at the same time, they encounter varying degrees of difficulties and challenges. When children have learning, behavioural, emotional or social developmental problems, parents often feel helpless. In view of this, HKU Faculty of Education, supported by the HKU Knowledge Exchange (KE) Funding, has launched a series of KE videos to share practical tips and skills of parenting with the public, as well as to help parents understand the needs of their children's growth and establish a good parent-child relationship in a simple and interesting way. A total of six videos (in Chinese only) are disseminated through the Faculty’s YouTube Channel

  • HKU longitudinal study finds screen readers improve learning efficiency in students with visual impairment

    HKU longitudinal study finds screen readers improve learning efficiency in students with visual impairment

    A two-year study by HKU Faculty of Education found screen readers effectively assist people with visual impairment to learn. A total of 50 participants including primary and secondary school students as well as adults with visual impairment were recruited. It found these students mainly used screen readers in language classes at school, which could replace Braille textbooks and help to reduce the weight of their school bags and increase their reading speed; adult users also found screen readers useful for helping them to cope with difficulties in their daily lives. Dr Allan Yuen, Deputy Director of the HKU Centre for Information Technology in Education, called for programme developers to consider the compatibility between screen-reading software when developing software, to provide more software for use by people who are visually impaired. He also recommended schools to provide sufficient computers to students with visual impairment for classroom and after school learning.
