Social Events and PD

Social

Regular social activities help us relax in this fast-paced city. They are an opportunity to meet new people and catch up with old friends. Apart from unwinding, the activities also allow us to share our highs and lows of living and working here. We welcome ideas and help. We especially welcome new NETs. There is sometimes a charge to cover costs.

We are a group of NESTA members who would like to promote social events as a way to develop collegiality with NET teachers and to explore this great city.

Contact: social@nesta.hk

Professional Development

Professional Development is vital for our continued improvement as professionals in Hong Kong. PD covers all aspects as educators, from understanding the culture of the Hong Kong classroom to examination preparation to developing our skills in e-learning.

We welcome all NETs to our PD days, and certificates of attendance will be provided.

If you have any enquiries or would like to contributes ideas or can help in any way, please contact pd@nesta.hk

Sat 28th Apr / Start at 09:30 Building 21st century learners: using everyday technology and culture

Theme: Building 21st century learners: using everyday technology and culture
Date: Saturday 28 April 2018
Time: 9.30 am – 1 pm (registration & refreshment will start at 9 am)
Venue: W421 - EDB Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre



1) Using technology in a low-resource context (9.30 – 11 am)
Having digital resources means having access to the internet and devices including computers, laptops and tablets, as well as classroom equipment such as a data projector and interactive whiteboard. Yet many teaching schools have very few or none of these resources present. If your place of work is like this, then this workshop is designed for you.

By the end of the workshop, you'll be able to evaluate and exploit your technological context, promote learner autonomy and out-of-classroom learning, and adapt practical teaching ideas for your context.

Dave Gatrell
Online Teacher Development Coordinator


***** 11 – 11.30 am: Networking break *****


2) Teaching intercultural learning on the primary and secondary level (11.30 am – 1 pm)
Hong Kong is an international city with many opportunities for students to interact and learn from other cultures. Despite this, there are many everyday practicalities that often prevent this from happening. This workshop will give you tools and ideas to spark student interest and teach intercultural learning in the classroom, enhancing their English skills and confidence to meet and interact with others.

Thomas Wong
AFS, Senior Director of Programs
