Walk In Hong Kong has been dedicated to providing high-quality online experiential cultural learning activities for young people, hoping to inculcate some enjoyment and warmth in the monotonous at-home atmosphere, while also encouraging cultural and historical dialogue complementing subject content from their education.
Guided tours: designed to meet the curriculum needs of different subjects
According to the subject matter and learning focus of each discipline, we carefully select a series of guided tours that fit the curriculum and recommend them to schools.Please view our recommended guided tours for each subject topic below. Teachers are welcome to contact us to designate in-person or virtual mode. We are happy to make recommendations as needed.
Our usual tour duration is 2 to 2.5 hours. Tour groups with more than 22 participants are advised to divide into 2 small groups.
Using Zoom as a platform, on-site docents are present and teaching assistants can be arranged to enter the school in person to assist students in interactive sessions. Students can participate in classes at home or at school. The content and length of tours can also be tailored, including 30-minute to 1.5-hour versions, which can be flexibly adapted to the student's class, location (joining at school or from home), and time. At the same time, activity worksheets are provided to consolidate learning points.
(Note * Those are special tours, with charges different from other general tours. For details, please contact our staff.)
Skills Training Workshop: Enhance Personal Competitiveness
Walk in Hong Kong has rich training experience. Under the "new normal", our training workshops can be held both in-person and online, breaking through geographical boundaries and being widely praised by all parties.
Storytelling Skills Training Workshop
"Storytelling" may sound easy, but the use of storytelling skills to capture the audience has become a furtive trait amongst successful people. Students learn to wrap their speeches in stories, engage audiences with lively and interesting narratives, and handle them well in public speaking, presentations, interviews and other opportunities to express themselves in the future.
Historical Data Collection Workshop
In order to gain an in-depth understanding of the subject, students often need to scour the Internet for relevant information on their own. However, how to properly collect data is also an erudition. This workshop aims to enhance students' ability to collect data. By mastering more effective data collection skills, students can be more comfortable in self-directed learning.
Cultural Mapping Workshop
Including introduction to cultural maps, field surveying and map making workshops to understand the function of cultural maps and the importance of promoting cultural conservation. Participants can utilize multimedia teaching materials (physical or electronic publishing) to absorb and share knowledge of the region's history and culture.
Community Study Workshop
By discussing community research methods such as "Kao Xian Xue" and "Walking Method", students will learn the importance of community research, proper data collection methods, report writing and public speaking skills. Students can gain an in-depth understanding of different communities in Hong Kong, experience the conservation and inheritance of Chinese culture in society, and improve students' observation, analysis and diverse thinking skills.
