St Stephen's Girls' College, one of the oldest Anglican schools in Hong Kong, played host to 40 secondary school English teachers from Guangdong province, and introduced them to the application of Information Technology (IT) to the classroom. As part of a three-week in-service programme at the Hong Kong Institute of Education, the teachers from China visited St Stephen's, which has been participating in an IT Pilot Scheme since 1998. The course gives teachers an insight into how computers can enhance English learning. They attended a number of sessions at the school, including presentations on the web-based summer bridging programme, student computer presentations, had a look at a student Web site, participated in a CD-Rom activity, and saw a class role-play an e-mail demonstration. An experience-sharing session revealed some interesting differences in working conditions between Hong Kong and Guangdong. The visitors said they were not using IT because of a lack of equipment. They said class sizes are larger: some teachers had classes of as many as 80 or 90. The teaching load also varies. Some Guangdong teachers taught only eight lessons a week, and were surprised to discover 28 lessons a week was average in Hong Kong.
