 In 1997, the education system taught in local schools has
undergone a series of changes.
 The new model, brought in at the beginning of the 2009/10

process.
 40 computers for each primary

each secondary schools
 About 85,000 IT training places
for teachers at four level
 Technical support for all school
 Information Education Resource
Center

 Review of school curriculum to
incorporate IT elements
 Development of appropriate
software in collaboration with

tertiary institutions and schools
 Exploring feasibility of setting up
an education-specific Intranet
• There is no clear standard definition of
technology integration in K-12
schools(Bebell, Russell, & O’Dwyer,
2004). For some scholars, technology
integration was understood and
examined in terms of types of teachers’
computer use in the classrooms: low-
level (e.g., students doing Internet
searches) or high-level use (e.g.,
students doing multimedia
presentations, collecting and
interpreting data for projects) (Cuban,
Kirkpatrick, & Peck, 2001).
What is Technology Integration?
• technology integration was
understood and examined in
terms of how teachers used
technology to carry out
familiar activities more reliably
and productively, and how
such use may be re-shaping
these activities (Hennessy,
Ruthven, &Brindley, 2005).
• According to its ICT integration plan
for education, Hong Kong has taken
the following initiatives, among
others, of
• (1) offering technical support on a
contractual basis to schools;
• (2) opening school labs after school
hours for students to increase
access;
• (3) implementing a pilot scheme of
demonstration schools with a view to
establishing best practices in ICT
education similar to countries such
as Australia and Singapore;
• (4) setting up a nationwide school
network similar to countries such as
Singapore, Australia, and Mauritius. It
also lays much emphasis on issues of
access and connectivity, teacher
empowerment, curriculum and
resource support, and community-
wide culture that fosters more
involvement and collaboration among
school management, teachers,
students, parents, the business sector
and other community bodies
(Education and Manpower Bureau,
2004).
