 Video Conferencing (VC) has become a prevalent conference solution in the world today. Regardless of where you are, it allows you to have 'face-to-face' opportunities to meet up with people overseas and cost-effective.  Video Conferencing allows connections with other schools or organizations throughout the world.  

 As a school we might never have chance to take all of our students to visit all the places in the world but through the video conferencing we can take our students to far away places.  It helps to expand the scope of their world and provides opportunities for exercising various skills such as presentation skills, communication skills and collaboration skills.  And one of the best parts of video conferencing is that students have so much fun that they don't even realize it's a learning experience.

VC with Saba High School, Iran

Focus: World Water Day

World Water Day started in 1993. It is an annual UN observance day highlighting the fresh water problem around the world. The theme for 2019 was "Leaving no one behind" to encourage people to consider marginalised groups as they are often overlooked and discriminated against the access to safe water. This VC was held with the organisers from US and a high school in Iran. Students shared the water problem and other pollution issues in their country and how they could contribute to sustainable lifestyle.

VC with Taiwan

Focus: Horseshoe crab
 
Human activities in the modern world have posted tremendous pollution to the environment; different habitats in the nature are facing changes such as shrinking in size due to pollutants, predators invasion because of the food chain disorder, moreover, chemical wastes dumped by factories even causing biological changes in various species which might cause a huge damage to the wild, thus eventually to the human’s society.
 
The theme of this video conference was ecology conservation and students from both schools taught each others about the changes of the animals’ habitats, treats they are countering, and what we could do to help.
 
Horseshoe crab was chosen by our students’ for sharing. Since our school has participated in the Horseshoe Crab Rearing Programme organised by the Ocean Park and City University of Hong Kong in years, we are very familiar with its body structure, growth path, diet and habitat conditions.
 
We taught the Taiwan students how to make a horseshoe crab origami. Students from both schools enjoyed it. Although it was challenging to teach origami through webcams since steps needed to be shown very clearly or the whole origami will not be in shape, everyone was having wonderful time.

20 March 2015   7.15am

VC with Del Valle High School, Del Valle, Texas USA  

 

Focus: International Criminal Court – Moot Court Case on Oil

 
There were 2 speakers per side.  Each side had 30 minutes to present their speech followed by a Q and A session where each side challenged the other on what they presented.
 
Our students were talking for the stance that oil is a fossil fuel, we are running out of oil and that oil companies are not manipulating with the oil prices (the oil prices are determined by market mechanism).  The students made use of scientific data and prior research studies to support their stance.  The opposition raised very brilliant questions too for instance since most of the oil is stored in the middle-east countries does that indicate that dinosaurs migrated to Middle-east to die.  It was overall highly entertaining and interesting.

VC with Lyceum No.15, Cherkessk, Russia 

 
Focus: Do you agree with ALS Iced Bucket Challenge 

 

The main focus was on ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone's head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. It wemt viral on social media during July–August 2014. Students on both sides shared their viewpoints with illustrations such as The President of the United States,Barack Obama, was challenged but declined, opting to contribute to the campaign with a donation. On the other hand Justin Bieber was criticized for not properly doing the challenge. Students raised a number of criticisms relating to the campaign, accusing it of being self-congratulatory focusing primarily on fun rather than donating money to charity and substituting a trivial activity for more genuine involvement in charitable activities. Furthermore criticism has also targeted the waste of water.

23 May 2014 3pm

VC with Ilford County High School, England 

 
Focus: Global Alternative Energy Debate 

 

Debate was held with London on Wind Power Vs Nuclear. Our students stood up for Nuclear, which they believe is the most appropriate due to limited space and high demand for electricity to match the developed and high tech lifestyle of Hong Kong whereas England stayed firm with Wind Power, which they believe is more clean and safe. Both sides tabled their points and argued with solid data. We believe the debate gave both sides in-depth sight of how factors including economical and geographical conditions of a country affect its preference of energy use.
