To counter this problem, Marshall Cavendish Online (MC Online) and MediaCorp recently organized a sharing session for Chinese teachers on how the integration of Infocomm Technology (ICT) in Chinese lessons can effectuate more interesting and engaging lessons for students. MC Online and MediaCorp’s joint collaboration - LuV Chinese - an innovative multimedia curriculum that instills interest in learning Chinese was the highlight of the event.

The session took place on 21st September at The House of Tan Yeok Nee Conference Centre (Chicago Booth University) and was hosted by MediaCorp artiste, Guo Liang. Held for the third year running, this year’s session saw a turnout of 99 teachers from 35 secondary schools.

The session kicked off with guest speaker, Ms Wu Jing from Singapore Centre for Chinese Language (SCCL) who stressed the importance of new media literacy in classroom teaching and the methods of integrating multimedia in Chinese lessons to stimulate students’ interest.
