Dear Principal

I am writing to apply for the position of Multimedia Design and Technology Teacher at your school after I learned the position from the advertising posted  on Ming Pao Jump. I recently finish my BA (Hons) Art and Design in Education from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, School of Design. I firmly believed that my actual design experience can give me real advantage on multimedia design and technology teaching. 

Design is a tool to solve daily problems around us, it is mainly the job to create better communication between people by multimedia design. Traditionally, as designers and artists we used different kinds of paint, raw material like paper, rock, clay, etc.  to create our artworks. Nowadays multimedia design is more likely referring to digital media, it refers to text, sound, still image, animated graphic images, motion video, 3-D presentation etc. I am a experienced designer equipped with both 2D and 3D skills (please find the attached portfolio for your reference). 2 years experience working in a design department of a financial public relation and event company strengthen my 2D presentation skills to a level of commercial standard. I can teach my students all the skills it required for actually commercial world with professional software Adobe Design Suites, like Adobe Ai, Photoshop, Indesign and so on.

S.T.E.A.M.- Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

S.T.E.A.M. is becoming a hot topic in today education, as a former Industrial designer I am not only going to distribute the skills of 2D design, but also I can put in my industrial design knowledge on the theme of Technology and Engineering.

For the ART aspect of S.T.E.A.M.

When we are talking about nowadays education, we are not going to focus on traditional "teacher to student" lecturing, we are going to focus on new pedagogy which give better interaction between students, such as, interesting workshops, project based programs, in school competitions, out school exhibition etc. In my personal experience ideas come from discussion and sharing among peers. What I am going to teach is not "how to do design", I am going to teach my students "the way to form a better idea by listening and sharing". And the ART with always come along with the process. In the last year of my study of BA (Hons) of Art and Design in Education, PolyU,  I spend 3 seminar on researching the application of affordances (which is a term to describe human - object interaction, raised by  James J. Gibson at 1977) of daily object by studying how people transform the form of object based on their purposes and usages. I believe my studies in collage is going to give me a great help on demonstrating the daily create around us, encouraging creativity in classes.

For Technology, Engineering aspect of S.T.E.A.M.

2 years in-school manufacturing training in Industrial Center built up my knowledge on material selection, production of hot metal, steel metal, CNC machining, molding, and product safety. More than 3 years on Industrial design industry experience, including home security product, such as, sensor stair light, remote door chain, lantern, and  household product, such as kitchen ware, computer speaker, toy camera, wooden furniture, medical products and so on, reinforced my 3D modeling Modeling. I can operate Alias Design Studio, Solidworks. I am now catching up on digital sculpting software like Zbrush and Maya. Well trained  3D  skills and production experiences are also one of my essential abilities, I believe if your school is going to launch a S.T.E.A.M project, or joining any out school design competition, I will be a great production adviser assistant to your students. 3D printing technology is one of my strength with I think it will boost up the creativity of student, students will be interested in watching the fast 3D printing result showing their artworks. 

It would be grateful if we can have the opportunity to discuss a range of pedagogical methodologies which are feasible and applicable both inside and outside the classrooms of your school. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss with you regarding the position. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Yours faithfully,
