Technology has significant impact on education and communication. On the one hand, the whole learning process can be digitized, captured and analyzed that the data informs academic and practitioners for a continuous improvement in curriculum development, teaching philosophy, pedagogy, learner characteristics, student engagement, assessment and feedback. On the other hand, to a broader perspective, technology changes the way we communicate, in form of interpersonal communication, small group communication, mass media and journalism, new media, and social media. HKAECT International Conference 2019 provides a forum for exchanges of theory and practices on technology in education and communication. This platform provides a linkage between local and international academics and practitioners, and among institutions, society and the world. HKAECT International Conference 2019 aims to enhance the contribution of applied research and scholarship; support the development and application of new conceptual frameworks; improve the quality of contemporary practices; and encourage the continuous revisit of theories.
