The lesson also introduced the SMART method used in plan-making had grabbed the students’ attention, which consist of: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-based.
The interaction between Hsi Lai Scouts and students of the Dharma School for Youth had shown that the E-generation are much more comfortable using digital tools to interact, thus created a proactive learning environment with more students actively asking questions. As the lesson comes to an end, the members of Dharma School for Youth enjoyed the whole process and hoped for the next opportunity to have a class with Hsi Lai Scouts.
