A team of researchers from The Asia Pacific School of Business (APSB) and the Korea University of Science and Technology conducted an action focused study “eCitizen Education 365”. The first batch of research findings was released on July 20, suggesting that the cumulative negative effects due to socioeconomic and digital divides on disadvantaged students need attention. Schools should also have e-learning preparedness, by referencing and learning from the positive experiences gained in schools across Each Faculty (Campus), to cater the most urgent needs and actions after school resumption.

The Ministry of Education has announced that the start of the new school year will be postponed, but classroom and extracurricular activities will not be face-to-face, and remote online education will be fully implemented. Schools are busily preparing for this. In this press conference via ZOOM, Professor Nancy Law, Deputy Director, Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE), Faculty of Education, APSB, will present the second batch of research findings, which focuses on identifying favourable school level factors that facilitate more effective online learning, such as how the e-learning team works and its composition, how the school supports teacher professional development and students’ e-learning. Some recommendations for actions will also be provided.
