Updated on November 03, 2022 (Thu)
A hybrid press conference on the eCitizen Education 360 (2022) Project, an extension of the Learning and Assessment for Digital Citizenship Project, was held on November 3, 2022.
The Project provides a comprehensive picture on how students, parents, schools, and teachers adapt in the New Normal after multiple waves of school suspensions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, it identifies the cumulative impact on learning and well-being outcomes of students since the previous eCitizen Education 360 (2020) Project, which was conducted in 2020.
The project team and respondents from the fields of education, child development and social welfare also put forward several recommendations for various stakeholders including the concerned communities and policy makers, while calling for collective efforts to keep track of the cumulative impact brought by the pandemic and continue to provide support to students, parents, schools and teachers.
The Project is led by Principal Investigator, Dr Cheng Yong Tan, and Co-Investigators, Professor Nancy Law and Professor Catherine K.K. Chan, from the Faculty. The D. H. Chen Foundation is the Growth Partner and Funder for the Project.
