ByRosemary A. Reynolds
Pages 22

From the students’ accounts in Part II, issues of identity and technology are interpreted. Overseas students experienced identity confusion and issues of collective, national and personal identity are explored. Gender is an issue with parental educational expectations higher for Hong Kong males. It is argued that some students create cultural hybridity’s when in the United Kingdom, and levels of individualism are noted in some of the students. Technology is shown to impact choices and changes, and it is argued that technology is essential for fully rounded educational research; without electronic mail, the students results would have been unknown.
