100+ Schools Have Joined the Free Map
in Learning Program
Over 100 or almost 10% of primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong have enrolled in the Map in Learning (MiL) Program since its launch mid last year. Hong Kong is the first city in Asia to implement the initiative through which we hope to improve students’ skills in problem solving, data analysis, technology integration and innovation.

The Program was officially inaugurated on 18 June 2016. More than 70 principals and teachers attended The Map in Learning Program Launching Ceremony cum Teacher Workshop held in Wah Yan College, Kowloon. Mrs. Marion Lai, JP, Permanent Secretary for Education, was the officiating guest of the ceremony.
Under the Program, sponsored students can use GIS software and related professional map analysis tools originally developed for government, public and private enterprises. Even better, they can use the cloud GIS (ArcGIS Online) on their smartphones, tablets and desktops anywhere for the purpose.
