Project Design on TDG Application
The TDG project is entitled “Enhancing learner autonomy through teacher curatorship on an online learning platform in appreciating Hong Kong’s cultural heritage”. The presentation will talk about how the project aims focuses on STEAM learning and digital technology. The deliverables of the project are an online platform where students could engage in interactive in-class learning, and in an on-site interactive game out of class (enhancing a previously developed mobile app ARchiHK from her ECS project) where students and general public can actively and independently learn more about local cultural heritage.

She previously received an Early Career Scheme (ECS) grant and recently a General Research Funding (GRF) to increase public awareness and understanding on local cultural heritage, particularly in the early twentieth century.

Project Evaluation on TDG Application
– Mobilizing Future Educators to Combat Cyberbullying

An innovative 6-session anti-cyberbullying e-course was developed to raise Hong Kong college students’ awareness of cyberbullying and to increase their intention to help cyberbullied victims. Compared with the control group, participants in the intervention group had higher scores on intention, perceived behavioral control, and behavioral intervention to help cyberbullied victims; and higher awareness of cyberbullying and self-efficacy to combat cyberbullying after the course than those in the control group. The findings have implications for developing online cyberbullying interventions.

Speaker: Dr LEUNG Nga Man Angel
Dr Leung’s research centers on the psychosocial well-being and development of children and adolescents. Her research interests include cyberbullying, online social interaction, E-learning education, filial piety and suicide. She received an Early Career Scheme (ECS) grant, and recently a General Research Fund (GRF) on cyberbullying, and cyberbullying intervening behavior among Chinese students.
