Dr Wong Lung Hsiang, Senior Education Research Scientist and the co-Programme Director of the Learning Sciences and Innovation Research Programme at the Centre of Research in Pedagogy and Practice (CRPP), participated in the 28th Global Chinese Conference on Computers in Education (GCCCE) 2024 held from 1 to 5 June 2024, at Southwest University, Chongqing, China.

He co-wrote an English paper titled “Using Whole-Class Discussion to Promote Student Idea Evolution in a Blended Primary Science Classroom” alongside NIE researchers, Ms Thi Thu Ha Nguyen (Research Fellow, CRPP), Dr Peter Seow (Education Research Scientist, CRPP), and Dr Teo Chew Lee (Deputy Centre Director, CRPP). The paper investigates the use of whole-class discussion to foster Student-Generated Ideas (SGIs) in a blended primary science lesson in Singapore, emphasising the role of technology and teacher scaffolding. The findings highlighted the evolution of students' ideas and the cognitive processes involved, offering key insights for lesson design and implementation. The paper was also awarded the Best English Paper Award.

Dr Wong also co-wrote a Chinese paper titled 《“学生生成构想”教学理念应用于混合学习的历程分析》(Analysis of a Blended Learning Lesson Underpinned by the Pedagogical Approach of SGI), for GCCCE 2024.

He was invited to speak at a panel discussion titled “Research and Practice of Large Educational Models: Innovative Applications of Generative Artificial Intelligence”, and delivered a speech titled “Pedagogical Design Powered by Generative AI and Informed by Educational Theories: A Case Study in Language Learning”.
