Application of Education Informatization Promoting Educational Equity in Remote Areas of China

Sijia Kou

Abstract—Nowadays, an increasing number of people are concerned about the problem of educational inequality. Especially in remote areas in China, due to the backward development of the economy, the population is outflowing, which means that the teachers are not strong enough. Meanwhile, the science and technology are not advanced enough and the infrastructure construction is not perfect. With the continuous development of information technology, education informatization has brought more and more attention to education equity. Poverty reduction through education is a hot issue that the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China is concerned about. The education informatization we mentioned in this paper points to fundamental education informatization. This article has introduced the fundamental educational performance of China and the contribution of one of the Chinese projects, which is named cross-regional simultaneous teaching application pilot project, to improve teaching quality in terms of educational technology making use of the two-way broadband satellite and the platform called panoramic learning platform. This means that teachers and students, especially for remote areas’ teachers and students, can benefit from this project to gain more educational resources. By harnessing this, China can help more people to receive a better education so that it can bridge the gap between rich and poor.

Index Terms—Cross-regional simultaneous teaching application pilot project, education informatization, panoramic learning platform, two-way broadband satellite.
