About the Conference

There are two stories to be told about the post-pandemic educational landscape. On the one hand, some teachers and parents believe that the resumption of face-toface classes is long overdue. In these circumstances, schools and universities mandate COVID-19 vaccinations on the assumption that face-to-face teaching and learning on campus should take place as soon as possible. On the other hand, statistical data have shown that since the inception of the pandemic lockdown, there has been an exponential growth of the use and investment of education technology worldwide. The online learning global market is forecasted to rocket by 18 fold from HK$145.5 billion to HK$2,730 billion. The learning habits of billions of affected learners across 186 countries have been forever changed. This is by no means just a temporary disruption, but a phenomenal digital transformation that is likely to stay indefinitely.

With the aim of providing a complete picture of the post-pandemic landscape of education, communication and beyond, the HKAECT International Conference 2022 cordially invites presentation proposals and full papers that explore current education innovations, digital transitions and transformations in the new normal. Topics relevant to the conference theme include, but are not limited to:

  • ICT use and assessment
  • Web literacy and social media
  • Gamification and learning apps
  • MOOC and online communities
  • Educational design and technology
  • Online learning and flipped classrooms
  • Learning analytics and AI in education
  • Education policy and curriculum development

Other relevant topics are also welcome.
