The Hong Kong Story is not easy to tell - said sociologist Lui Tai Lok. It's even more challenging to tell it to a mixed group of local and overseas students given their diverse past experience about Hong Kong. The current project explores the potential benefit of incorporating the uReply Go as mobile assisted learning and teaching platform, experiential learning (Kolb, 1984) and peer learning (Whitman and Fife 1988) in assessments of a sociology course on Hong Kong society. Assuming the role of a teacher, students research on the social-history of a selected Hong Kong district and design a fieldtrip to tell a story of the concerned community. They are structurally exposed to the four stages of experiential learning: reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, active experimentation, and concrete experience as they formulate a story framework, dig deep into the community literatures with optional online/onsite interviews, and finally design and test their fieldtrip with the mobile platform outside the classroom. Peer teaching is involved since the self-guided fieldtrip is designed to be experienced by other classmates thus their pedagogical need has to be considered. Preliminary observations suggest students become better motivated and engaged in spiral learning. Mobile assisted learning and teaching platform is particularly relevant during the pandemic as students can complete their field assignment online (e.g. Google map) without physically present at the fieldsite or classroom. According to a World Economic Forum policy paper, over 1.2 billion students are out of the classroom as of April. It is suggested future assessment can explore the potential of incorporating Google Earth.
