Using Virtual Reality to Learn Chinese Poetry at KGV School

Two classes of Y9 Chinese students joined together for our first ever “Chinese Poetry X STEM” workshop. This is our first workshop under the “Chinese Poetry Plus Project” sponsored by Quality Education Fund. The incorporation of creativity is highly focused and we have included VR technology in hopes of encouraging innovative and creative thinking amongst students. From this workshop, the students successfully created sceneries taken from a Chinese poem they learnt in class. The sharing session encouraged students to explain the meaning behind the scenes as to show their understanding towards the poem. It was overall a valuable experience for the students as well as teachers and we are looking forward to more opportunities in implementing VR technology in teaching.
