Sponsored by the Quality Education Fund, Hong Kong Organ Transplant Foundation started the 23-month project “Organ Donation for You and Me” Junior Secondary Teaching Toolkit in February 2020, with the objective to combine moral education and organ donation into the curriculum of junior forms. We believe that systematic introduction of moral education in junior forms could help the younger generation develop positive value as well as a culture of organ donation.
The toolkit intends to bring out the knowledge and meaning of “Organ Donation” through 3 moral perspectives, namely “Holistic Health”, “Life Value” and “Social Care”. The 4 themes would be organized into 4 modules which correspond with each other. The toolkit makes use of activities, games, short videos and case studies to deliver key messages in each module. It encourages interactions between teachers and students so as to help understand students’ way of thinking.
The toolkit trial version has been completed. The 15 seeds schools will conduct trial teaching in junior forms in the 2020-2021 academic year. After the trial teaching, we will revise the toolkit taking account of comments received from teachers.
