Hua Hsia Chinese School
Hua Hsia Chinese School was established in 2001 by Katja Ting and 2 other parents who were keen to offer children and adults in the North London community the opportunity to learn the complex, yet fascinating Mandarin language and culture. Hua Hsia Chinese School currently run classes in three locations including Hampstead, Mill Hill and East Barnet offering tuition to children from the age of 6 months upwards and also offering qualifications up to A level standard. In 2012 the school introduced the first Abacus Mental Maths classes to the UK market place.
Hua Hsia Chinese School is one of seven London schools selected to take part in a research project with Goldsmiths, University of London. The project titled “Critical Connections: Multilingual Digital Storytelling Project” is a two-year collaborative project, involving teachers and students who will work with Goldsmiths researchers to plan, implement and evaluate a multilingual digital storytelling project designed to engage secondary age students in language learning.
Digital storytelling is a way of capturing still and moving images with words and recorded sound – voice and music – to create and keep a lively, multisensory story. By incorporating digital storytelling projects into classroom learning you can reach today’s students and at the same time help them develop the skills needed to be successful in our complex, technology-rich world. Creating digital stories engages and inspires students, ignites a love for learning, and creates more teaching stories for others to share and enjoy.
Hua Hsia Chinese School are very pleased to be working with Goldsmiths on this research project. The School likes to be innovative and we feel that this new method of teaching and learning is very exciting. We know that it will inspire our students and give our teachers a new platform to work with in the classroom. We look forward to working on this project with Goldsmiths.
