Chairman's Message

 

IT Education Center (ITEC) is a registered non-profit making organization, was initiated and founded in 1998 by me. We have been concerning about the development of Hong Kong's IT education and ongoing providing high quality IT training courses and other services and activities in serving the community.

In recent years, the Government is committed to the promotion of IT in education, the Education Bureau (EDB) launched E-Textbook Market Development Scheme (EMADS) to facilitate and encourage the participation of potential and aspiring e-textbook developers to develop a diverse range of e-textbooks in line with our local curricula. ITEC is granted by EDB to be one of the developers under the EMADS.

To better understand the current situation of Hong Kong secondary schools in offering computer literacy and their teachers' expectations, we have designed a tailor-made questionnaire to those teachers in early 2014, requesting them to provide hands-on information to help us develop the e-textbooks in order to meet the needs of the schools. We hope it can help Hong Kong to establish an innovative, healthy, diverse and sustainable electronic textbook market.

IT education’s goal is through electronic technology to enhance learning effectiveness. I hope that e-learning can make learning more effective and more fun to help students develop the habit of lifelong learning and to achieve all-round development.
