Shandong province will promote the construction of smart campuses during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25), according to a plan on education informatization recently released by the Shandong Provincial Department of Education.

The plan states that campuses in Shandong will achieve 100 percent coverage of major education networks. Shandong will establish excellent provincial-level courses covering all disciplines of primary and secondary schools, and form an educational information-based innovation and development system that strongly supports talent cultivation in the new era.

Shandong will focus on building a special education network to promote the upgrading of new infrastructure in response to the problems of insufficient support for educational information-based development infrastructure, weak supply capacity of high-quality educational resources, and insufficient innovation of information-based education and teaching methods, and the education big data governance platform and the smart education public service platform will be established.

Infrastructure construction, education methods, digital resources, learning spaces, education governance, and digital literacy are highlighted in the education informatization plan.

Efforts will be made to promote intelligent teaching, intelligent management and intelligent service to boost the digital transformation of education.

By 2025, the provincial education informatization is expected to reach an advanced international level.
