In this paper we will present results of a survey investigating youth engagement with popular culture and technology in Hong Kong. Using a questionnaire administered by teachers enrolled on an in-service course at the Hong Kong Institute of Education, the project addresses several research questions. How much of their time do young people spend on activities involving popular culture and technology? Which activities occupy most of their time and how are they related to their preferred activities? How are their use of time and preferences related to age, gender and the organization of their daily lives? In conclusion, we will also discuss the ways in which we have identified specific questions for qualitative research in the Hong Kong context from the quantitative data.
