Getting Ready for Tomorrow’s Learning Today
Mr Victor Cheng, Executive Director of Hong Kong Education City, said the Industrial Revolution 4.0 with rapid advancement of technology in AI, Cloud and Big Data is taking place globally and at exponential speed. This has presented great challenges to education with the fundamental questions of what to learn, how to learn and how to assess what have been learnt. It is becoming imminent that education professionals need a rich, fast and global update on all the critical development in education.

‘LTE will continue to provide an effective global platform for the education community to share ideas, knowledge and experience, and to explore the latest education technology, as well as learning tools and resources,’ said Victor. ‘The Expo will gather leading education professionals, experienced educators, exhibitors from around the globe, and strategic partners to present their visions along with the latest learning and teaching innovations.’

Learning & Teaching Expo (LTE) is organised by Bailey Communications in partnership with Hong Kong Education City (HKEdCity) and with the support of the Education Bureau of the Government of HKSAR. Bailey Communications also organises the co-located event, the Asia-Pacific International Schools Conference (AISC), with the support of its Strategic Partner English Schools Foundation(ESF) in Hong Kong, international partner COBIS and the international schools community during the Expo period to build synergy effect across different education sectors.
