Hong Kong Study Centre

The Second Information Technology in Education Study (SITES) is an international comparative study carried out across twenty-eight countries and regions. The research project is conducted under the auspices of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The Hong Kong component of SITES is undertaken by the Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE) at the University of Hong Kong and funded by the Hong Kong Quality Education Fund (QEF).

The study consists of two independent modules: M1 (the indicators Module) and M2 (the innovative practices Module). Preparation for the Hong Kong SITES M1 and M2 Study was started in 1997 and 2000 respectively. The study aims to collect information on the application of information and communication technology (ICT) in school education for international comparison. The Study Centre is mainly responsible for data collection for the Hong Kong cases and conduct analysis in the local and international contexts. Results from the research will serve as reference for school principals, teachers, policy-makers, professionals and educational institutions, and provide a basis for in-depth discussion of the development of ICT in education in Hong Kong.
