Microsoft believes that education is the key to increasing competitiveness at both individual and societal level. Since 2004, Microsoft has been collaborating with the Hong Kong Education Bureau on the Partners in Learning (PiL) Initiative. By harnessing the power of information technology and next-generation eLearning practices, educators and students are empowered to stay competitive for building a sustainable knowledge-based economy.

With the support from PiL initiatives, Microsoft has trained more than 100 educators via Microsoft Valued Teacher (MVT) Program. During the program, the participating educators have attended various school visits, shared their experiences on driving e-Learning and coached other educators in Hong Kong how e-Learning could be applied in education.

I am grateful to have been awarded the Most Valued Teacher in Microsoft Valued Teacher Program again. During MVT Program, I have met a group of enthusiastic educators who are driven to develop
e-Learning in Hong Kong through different activities including seminar and sharing sessions.

In addition, it was lucky enough for me to attend Microsoft in Education Global Forum for two consecutive years in Prague, Czech Republic and Barcelona, Spain. In this forum, I interacted with educators from different countries and even learnt from world-class education experts. MVT Program is an excellent platform for passionate teachers to share and develop their skills in e-Learning. I hope I will see all of you in the coming year. Let's work together and make a nice e-Learning environment for our students.

  • Most Valued Teacher in Microsoft Valued Teacher Program 2013
  • Participant in Microsoft in Education Global Forum 2014
  • School demonstration team member in Microsoft in Education Hong Kong Forum 2013 & 2014

During the 6 years of e-Learning development in school, I was truly inspired by a group of MVTs when I needed them the most. Not only did I meet and discuss with other e-Learning experts in Hong Kong, but I also got invited to the Microsoft in Education Global Forum 2014 in Barcelona, Spain to share with educators from other countries and enhance my knowledge about 21st Century Learning.

We should not work alone. Through the MVT program, we can learn from each other so that we can develop the most effective learning solutions for our next generations. I look forward to continuously working with other passionate MVTs for better learning solutions.

In 21st century, information technology has become part of our lives in the 21st century. e-Learning has taken a very important role in education. Not only can it overachieve what the traditional learning mode could not, but it also increases student's interest in learning. Possessing only curriculum knowledge is no longer enough for teachers. Teachers need to apply information technology in teaching so that the potentials in students can be further developed to the fullest.

Microsoft Valued Teacher Program has provided a great platform for passionate educators to share, learn and inspire each other through innovative technology and teaching solutions. I am proud to be part of this energetic team which is ready to nurture the next generation for our society.
