    “3-I” stands for Interdisciplinary, Inter-school, and International. Funded by the Quality Education Fund, the project will be conducted from September 2005 to August 2006. It is aimed to promote interdisciplinary learning and higher order thinking skills through interdisciplinary project learning and cross-facilitation. 81 primary schools from Hong Kong and the Mainland China were engaged in the project to form a large community for project learning. Through their participation in the Web-based Project Learning, which is the core event of this project, participants work towards common objectives and share what they have learnt with one another. In the process of interaction, participants were able to understand themselves and the community better. The project is regarded as a new learning model which services as a good example of utilizing IT in education. To take a step further, it is expected that a global learning community will be created so as to apply the model at an international level. (ED05658)

    The project is to promote project-based learning among students in Hong Kong, Mainland and the USA by using a virtual learning community. In this learning community, students can role-play as villagers in different villages, each of which representing an interesting topic to be discussed. Within each village, any villager can build a house by initiating an issue to be discussed. Other villagers who are interested in that issue can go into that house to join the discussion. The more discussion within a house, the larger its size will be. Though students may be geographically separated, with this learning community, they can share their own experiences, and discuss with others. The role-playing and task-finishing motivate students and the reputation-gaining system continuously motivates students to achieve their best. The learning environment therefore provides opportunities for students to learn by finishing projects and to collaborate with others. (ED06996)
