21st Century Learners call for 21st Century Pedagogy. To engage 21st Century pupils effectively, schools need to actively innovate and adopt methods that promote Self-Directed Learning (SDL) and Collaborative Learning (CoL).

After adopting Taiwan’s approach towards cultivating the love of reading, in 2014, we collaborated with ETD and three other schools to embark on this project, designing our own approach and online platform suitable for our students. At the initial stage, teachers read with the students for 10 to 15 minutes during curriculum time (Modeled Sustained Silent Reading). This is to cultivate a good attitude and habit of reading. Once the habit of reading is formed, students engage in “book-talk”, where they share their views about the CL books they have read. To facilitate “book-talk” and book recommendations, students manage their own virtual bookshop in the “MyBookShop” online platform (MBS).

Students can recommend CL books that they like to their peers. They can view and comment on each other’s book recommendations by visiting their peers’ bookshops. Students’ interest towards reading has heightened. The virtual bookshop served as an engaging tool for students to exchange views and feedback on the books they have read, allowing them to sustain their interest in reading and sharing new books. This has also helped to improve their CL language use. In 2015, nine more schools have embarked on this project together with the original four schools.
