With a view to helping students understand abstract concepts and contents in the Life and Society (Secondary 1-3) curriculum more effectively, the Personal, Social and Humanities Education (PSHE) Section has developed a series of “3-minute Concept” animated video clips. Teachers may use the video clips for lesson introduction, development or consolidation. Also, supported by e-learning, students may view the video clips on their own for pre-lesson preparation or post-lesson revision so as to encourage self-directed learning in students. At the end of each video clip, a reflective question(s) is/are provided to facilitate extended discussion. Teachers may download the animated video clips and if applicable, make appropriate adaptation of the materials for use in their teaching.
