China's Ministry of Education published the Education Informatization 2.0 Action Plan in April, marking a new push to further reform the country's education system by utilizing advanced information technologies.

As part of moves to implement the government's action plan, Wuxi, in East China’s Jiangsu province hosted the Smart Education Summit during the city's 2018 World Internet of Things Expo on Sept 16.

With a focus on how new technologies are transforming the classroom, the summit saw hundreds of education experts discuss how the student experience might be reshaped by artificial intelligence, virtual reality, mobile internet, and internet of things (IoT) technologies.

IoT, cloud computing, and mobile internet technologies are changing the way we deliver education, and Jiangsu province is currently developing a system of internet-linked smart information terminals in the province’s schools, said Hong Liu, deputy director of Jiangsu Provincial Department of Education, during an opening speech.
