Abstract

Abstract:

“Not surprisingly, students were significantly affected by the shutdown. It is something of a reputational paradox that while Hong Kong is seen as a wealthy and technologically-advanced city, the median monthly wage was only HK$18,200 (US$2,350) in second half of 2019 (Hong Kong). Given that rents are among the most expensive in the world, this does not leave a lot of disposable income for technological accessories for students, such as laptop computers and high-speed internet connections. It also means that the home learning environments for these students are frequently crowded, with multiple generations of family members present, including those who also have to work from home at the same time.”
