Since 2018, JCDISI has launched the SOINNO Design Education programme to introduce Social Innovation and Design Thinking into the secondary education curriculum. In the programme, students can contemplate the social issues and learn the knowledge that matters to them.
Besides student workshops, we are also committed to provide professional training for teachers and pre-service teachers. We inspire teachers to cope with changing education needs in the unpredictable future. Through collaboration, we work together to cultivate innovative and adaptable next generation in both thinking and doing.
Reimagining English Education
Should learning tools be limited to just pens and papers? We believethat more diversified learning tools can encourage students to explore and reflect in their learning journey.
Starting from September 2019, JCDISI provided training sessions for teachers and pre-service teachers joining our Education programme. We explored the possibilities of incorporating design into school curriculum. By taking up the roles as facilitators, teachers can lead and encourage students to construct their own knowledge. Through opentool-based learning process, teachers can guide students to explore and learn autonomously with tools.
How might we lead students to understand complex and ever-changing Liberal Studies topics better?
In January 2020, JCDISI cooperated with Hong Kong’s Education Bureau to organise professional development workshop for Liberal Studies teachers. We led them to experience incorporating design activities, including observation of real users and brainstorming innovative ideas, into the curriculum.
Through trying to solve the real-world problems, teachers can guide students to have deeper and boarder understanding on the topics. Students’ whole-person development will be benefited when they can master the skills of thinking in multi-perspectives and applying related knowledge in problem solving.
