Abstract: 
In line with TLLM and I &E, Nan Chiau Primary seeks to move away from the traditional mode of frontal teaching to adopt the social constructivist model of teaching with pedagogical intentions which focus on nurturing pupils skilled in creating, evaluating and sharing knowledge in authentic learning experiences. The school’s Microsoft Class Server, the infrastructure of wireless technology and handheld devices, provides the structure for the integration of social constructivism across four core subjects in the curriculum. The action research conducted in 2005 sought to understand how the social constructivist model of teaching in a technology-enabled environment is integrated in Primary 4 curriculum using three dimensions of inquiry: perceptions of pupils towards learning; practices of learning; and performance of learning. The findings of the action research project hopes to provide a model for teachers and school leaders who wish to better engage pupils in learning through social constructivist processes in an ICT environment.
