Applying Wireless Information Technology in Field Trips--A Hong Kong Experience

Australian Educational Computing Volume 19, Number 2, ISSN 1443-833X e-ISSN 1443-833X


In 2002, the Honk Kong government launched a pilot scheme "e-school bag" promoting the use of wireless technology in ten primary and ten secondary schools for classroom teaching and learning. In 2003, a secondary school successfully received a grant from the Quality Education Fund (QEF) to implement a wireless network for outdoor field trips. This paper shares the experience generated from one school in Honk Kong using wireless technology, bluetooth, notebook computers, and Pocket PCs in increasing the interactivity of teaching and learning in outdoor education. Benefits, limitations, solutions, and future developments are presented. It is hoped that the experience gained from this project is beneficial to other schools experimenting the use of wireless technology in teaching and learning activities.
