Community Care Assistance Programme – eLearning

Community Care Fund Assistance Programme – Provision of Subsidy to Needy Primary and Secondary Students for Purchasing Mobile Computer Devices to Facilitate the Practice of e-Learning

Background and Objectives

The Education Bureau (EDB) has launched the Fourth Strategy on IT in Education in the 2015/16 school year and established WiFi campus for all public schools to facilitate e-learning through the use of mobile computer devices. A number of schools have adopted the “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) policy to further exploit the advantages of using mobile computer devices in learning. As the development of BYOD may create financial burden on students from low-income families, the Community Care Fund (CCF) has implemented this Assistance Programme, starting from the 2018/19 school year for three years, to subsidize needy primary and secondary students studying in public sector schools to purchase mobile computer devices.

關愛基金援助項目–資助清貧中小學生購買流動電腦裝置以實踐電子學習

背景及目的

教育局於2015/16學年起推行「第四個資訊科技教育策略」,為全港公營中小學校建立無線網絡校園,以便學生在課堂上使用流動電腦裝置進行電子學習。部分學校開始推行學生「自攜裝置」政策,以進一步發揮使用流動電腦裝置進行學習的優勢。鑑於「自攜裝置」的發展有可能為低收入家庭的學生增加經濟壓力,因此關愛基金於2018/19學年起推行這援助項目,為期三年,資助這些學生購買流動電腦裝置。

 

合資格的受惠對象

受惠對象必須符合以下條件:

  1. 就讀官立、資助(包括特殊學校)、按位津貼或直接資助計劃的中小學;並正領取由社會福利署發放的綜合社會保障援助(綜援),或領取在職家庭及學生資助事務處轄下的學生資助處的學校書簿津貼計劃全額資助(全津)或半額資助(半津);及
  2. 就讀的學校及班別正推行電子學習,並建議學生自攜流動電腦裝置。
