About the Conference

As the information and communications technology (ICT) proliferates in recent decades, the digital experience has come to play a significant role in modern life. For many, life in the digital era is mediated through digitization, social media, and virtual applications. In the same light, the education landscape has dramatically changed. For example, due to the use of ICT, learning is no longer confined to the classroom. The ubiquity of learning has brought revolutionary changes to pedagogical approaches, diminishing the divide of formal and informal learning in education. In the next couple of years, we can expect that the importance of ICT in education will continue to grow, bringing deep impacts on various educational aspects such as content and pedagogy, leadership, planning and management.

Why Join Us

With a view to reflecting on the impacts of ICT on education, the HKAECT International Conference 2023 cordially invites presentation proposals (500 words) and full papers (10-20 pages) that examine topics relevant to the conference theme include, but are not limited to:
