This report is made possible by the 21st Century Learning International, Canadian International School HK, Chinese International School HK, Eduro Learning, ISS, NIST International School, Renaissance College HK, Shekou International School, and UWC SEA.

The report will be released officially in February 2016 at the 21st Century Learning Conference in Hong Kong.
