University Students Supporting School Teachers of Academically At-Risk Students through Educational Technology
During school closures, teachers in less resourceful schools have struggled to cater to the diverse learning needs of academically at-risk students in their class. Without the physical presence of the teacher, these students, lacking the digital resources and rich learning experiences with educational technology, may not know how to stay engaged in the learning and teaching tasks and activities in online learning environments.
Therefore, this project aims to enhance student learning engagement and outcomes by providing EdUHK students with the opportunities to support teachers (technically and pedagogically) of academically at-risk students through the experiential learning with state-of-the-art educational technology.
