The Education and Manpower Bureau of the Hong Kong Government has promoted 'Learning to Learn' as a crucial feature of student-centred curriculum and the educational reforms over the passed decade have been directed towards this goal. Recently, information literacy, described as: the ability to master the processes of becoming informed, was identified as the missing ingredient in the reform. Interest in information literacy grew out of a realization that the application of modern information and communication technology and related shifts in curriculum integration and a shift away from textbooks and examinations, was not sufficient to deliver learning to learn.
