Programme

Join this virtual showcase for free if you are interested in:



- Effective ways to learn languages, STEM and life skills

- Building blended learning capacity

- Funding ESG/CSR/charity projects with innovative learning approaches

- Partnership opportunities with fast growing EdTech ventures worldwide

Educators and students have participated in a digital revolution in the last three years. Whilst technology can never replace the human interactions, educators have begun to realise how technology can make teaching and learning more engaging, inclusive, personal and effective. As we resume in-class learning, it is high time for educators to consider the school's blended learning strategy in the next academic year. 


Esperanza is pleased to introduce a few EdTech solutions in the areas of language learning (English and Putonghua) , AI, coding, science, as well as essential soft skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication, problem solving, adaptability, tenacity and global citizenship. In collaboration with the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Esperanza will also present a blended learning professional development programme offered by the renowned International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).


This webinar will be of interest to educators, charity foundations, corporates looking for new ESG/CSR opportunities, as well as companies looking for partnerships with growth stage EdTech startups expanding into the Asia market. The solution providers will offer special introductory packages for Hong Kong schools. Corporates and foundations may consider sponsoring the piloting of these solutions in Hong Kong.


The programme will be conducted largely in English with Cantonese Simultaneous Interpretation.
