Digital Inclusion

In recent years, Taiwan's urban-rural gap continues to widen and children residing in remote areas lack the access to decent learning environment. By enhancing the overall quality of education and for children and teenagers throughout Taiwan and continuing to improve social disparity through our core business competences, FET actively responds to UN SDG 4 quality education and SDG 10 reduced inequalities. By promoting a series of digital universal knowledge projects including "Revolutionize Education, Spread Love Far", compiling general science textbooks and creating forums, FET hopes to bridge the urban-rural educational gap via digital technology. Moreover, by introducing digital educational resources and overcoming time and spatial constraints, thereby providing even more diverse learning methods, every child can be more motivated to learn.

Revolutionize Education, Spread Love Far

Designed to teach digital technological applications, the camps utilized the much-beloved online game learning platform PaGamO and FET's smart voice assistant, Little Fox to assist children in rural areas to understand big data, AI, and IoT, the future trends in technology. In addition, gameassisted learning is used to inspire the children's motivation to learn while giving them the warmest caring. Furthermore, FET's President Chee Ching had personally led a team of senior executives and employees to accompany children in Hu Jhu Elementary School to learn.
FET x PaGamO Digital Education eSports competition: FET was the first to organize an education-themed e-sports competition using digita learning method through the online game learning platform, PaGamO.
