Southwest Guizhou Autonomous Prefecture has been at the forefront of developing digital education for China’s ethnic minorities. The prefecture uses the Jinzhou Educational Cloud Platform, which is based on improved digital infrastructure, to improve teachers’ digital instruction competencies, raise school precision management levels, and promote inter-school collaboration and sharing of high-quality educational resources. In this study, we examined the prefecture’s paths to developing internet- and IT-enabled minority education and described their successes to provide insight into the deep integration of information technology and education in minority regions.
