The Fourth Strategy on IT in Education - Enhancing Schools’ WiFi Infrastructure
The Government launched The Fourth Strategy on IT in Education (ITE4) in 2015. Major proposed initiatives include the phased provision of wireless network services and other supporting facilities for all public sector schools. As a pioneer measure, the Support Scheme for e-Learning in Schools (Support Scheme) was launched in January 2014 for 100 public sector schools to enhance their WiFi infrastructure and to acquire mobile computing devices for use in class.
With the experience gained in the Support Scheme and the general positive feedback obtained during the consultation period, we plan to implement the enhancement of WiFi infrastructure under ITE4 starting from the 2015/16 school year, subject to the funding approval from the Legislative Council.
The Education Bureau has announced the details of the support measures on 12 February 2015, please refer to relevant pages of this web site.
