Fan, Andy
International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v6 n4 p52-63 2010
The Portuguese came to Macau in the 16th century, Macao has become part of China again since 1999. Under the strong economic growth in recent years, the Macao government has invested substantial human, material and financial resources for the implementation of IT in education in Macau since 2001. This paper reviewed the development of IT in education in Macao, including hardware development, the integration of IT into teaching and learning and other informal forms of support by the government to the development of IT education. Although the development of Information Technology (IT) in education in Macao has progressed rapidly in the last few years, there are still many problems. The author makes some suggestions alleviating the shortcomings.
