香港賽馬會災難防護應變教研中心( 教研中心) 堅信「防災教育,從小做起」,自2019 年起積極與業界和學界合作,研發有趣又貼近生活的教學方法與教材,培養幼兒的防災知識、技能和態度,為應對未來的危難事件作好充分的身心準備。 教研中心在2020-21學年夥拍香港教育大學幼兒教育學系的研究團隊,開展一項名為「幼稚園推行防災教育課程的成效與挑戰」的研究項目。此研究旨在探討幼稚園校本防災教育課程對幼兒的批判性思維、解決問題和情緒管理能力的影響,並透過分析學校,社區和家長等不同層面和因素,了解本地幼稚園推行防災教育的成效和挑戰,從而加強學前兒童對防災和應災的知識、技能和態度。 綜合各持份者意見及研究結果,校長、教師和家長均認同推行幼兒防災教育的好處。從幼兒在活動中的表現、同儕之間的對話和學習評估表現中發現,幼兒的解難能力、自我保護和求生意識,於參與由教研中心舉辦的「幼稚園創新防災教材研發計劃」後均相對有所提升。 這份研究報告將有助了解香港幼兒防災教育的定位與發展方向,並就社會不同各持份者提出相關建議,具重要參考價值。相關內容及意見已提交教育局參閱。
