China has not developed very far in this area. All of our schools have computers and Internet for the teachers. While all our schools also have additional teaching materials such as posters, activity/idea books, games, toys for young learners, balls, flash cards, and other odds and ends–the amount may vary according to the school. Visual aids are available to help with younger students and each school will have a limited selection of supplementary texts.
Technology is slowly making its way into the Chinese classroom but for now the expense to provide them to all teachers in China is prohibitive. TVs, DVD machines, and tape players may be available in your school and when used need to be integrated into clear lesson objectives.
Many schools try to have what their teachers need and are open to the suggestions from the staff on obtaining more items. If you know of something that would benefit the students then please ask the school leader.
