AbstractThis study provides an exploration of physics teaching and learning in a classroom in Hong Kong. The goal of the study was to understand how to develop Bereiter and Scardamalia’s knowledge building approach for Asian contexts in away that is sensitive to Asian values. The paper reviews some aspects of learning physics in Asia from a Confucian-heritage perspective, and then reports a case study of physics learning with Knowledge Forum. Participants were 82 Form 4 (Grade 10) students taking two successive versions of a physics course. Data collected included classroom observations, measurement of physics learning, reflection, epistemic beliefs, attitudes toward science, and use of Knowledge Forum. The findings open up a number of questions for further research.
