Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been widely adopted in education, ranging from tools of delivery in e-learning to tools of learning in the classrooms. A major issue that educators have faced in such adoption is the integration of ICT in traditional classrooms. The Hong Kong Special Administration Region government has invested substantially in such endeavours. However a mid-term report has hinted very limited success. At the same time, the Hong Kong education system has undergone some rather radical reforms. This paper presents a case study of these reforms in Hong Kong in the context of ICT integration in the classroom. It focuses on the impact of ICT on the learning and teaching of Home Economics education. The paper will report the findings of a survey conducted to examine teachers’ perception of using ICT in Home Economics education.
