From Wan Ting Vivian YEO
Hong Kong schools experienced the longest period of school suspension to date due to COVID-19. eCitizen Education 360 is a comprehensive 360-degree survey study with wide community support to achieve the goal of enhancing our comprehensive capacities to improve the education opportunities, digital competence and well-being of students through rigorous “action-oriented” research. This seminar introduce the background and key published findings from this study, and the implications and recommendations for different stakeholders.
The study adopted a multi-level survey-based design to investigate the experiences and needs before, during, and after the school suspension, of different stakeholders in Hong Kong, including school leaders, ICT coordinators, teachers, students and their parents. Participation in the study was voluntary and all primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong were invited. Data was collected from mid-June to mid-July. A total of 53 schools, over 550 school leaders, about 790 teachers, 1300 parents and 6300 students from primary, secondary and special schools participated in the study.
