As education institutions increasingly make use of technology enrichment tools for learning, focus also remains on helping students to develop the key competences they require to ensure they grow into being well-balanced individuals.

Staff at Renaissance College Hong Kong (RCHK), for example, believe technology can help students expand beyond their comfort zone, creating more engaged learners. Located in Ma On Shan and part of the English Schools Foundation (ESF), RCHK uses technology to broaden the learning experience for students.

When recruiting information technology (IT) professionals, the school looks for technicians to assist more than 2,000 students, teachers and school support staff. Duties include trouble-shooting and training, hardware setup, network diagnostics and Apple mobile device management.

The school expects IT professionals to have at least three years' experience, preferably with an educational institution, and experience in mobile device management, specifically Apple devices.

Students at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA), meanwhile, also receive a more rounded educational experience, thanks to technology, which is largely used to distribute additional learning materials to them via the internet.

The HKAPA is currently looking for an IT technician to assist in designing, developing and administering its new Digital Library platform and associated web applications.

Candidates should ideally hold a degree specialising in digital media, multimedia design, information systems or computer science. They should also be proficient in software programming languages, such as HTML, JavaScript and Apache.
