As a research school, the Affiliated Experimental Elementary School of Taipei University is tasked with acting pursuant to the government’s education policies and trends. The mission of the school is to conduct relevant experiments and researches with the principle “teaching is researching” in its mind and fulfill the exalted idea of education with researches on actual teaching scenarios.
With the “flying-geese model” and “learning organization” as its base and “the research attribute of the affiliated school” as its core, the teaching team of the school conceives a unique team development model called the “flying-geese golden triangle learning dynamics,” which creates a perpetual cycle and dissemination of “elaborate teaching and learning” via “research and develop,” “practice,” “reflection,” and “re-innovation.”
The cornerstone of all learning is the “ability to think,” which is also the crux of elevating the students’ ability to learn. The school develops its courses and teaching around the core of “enlightening the students’ ability to think” and uses technologies to create the best learning results. The picture below is our developmental structure:
The meaning of the developmental structure of the smart school encouraging thinking is elaborated as follows:
We develop a teaching that resorts to the core of “deep interaction” in the smart school encouraging thinking, use technologies only to “fulfill the needs of leaning,” make judicious use of “smart technologies,” and develop smart teaching models.
In the smart school encouraging thinking, “the student” is the main part of learning, and we are trying to create learning that targets at the “high-level thinking” for students. Starting from this perspective, technologies should only be used to “create meaning” and become one of the best tools for students to practice “organization,” “representation,” and “re-innovation.” An example of this is that when the school develops a curriculum that involves an interdisciplinary theme, we ask the students to play the role of the “ambassador of the historic Taipei City.” They are required to conduct investigations to find out what backpackers really need and be the real problem solvers. To resolve these hassles for the real subjects, they have to integrate knowledge and abilities they acquired from different subjects and wisely use new technologies such as “AR and 3D printing” to try to design and create things. In the end, we put together their creations and come up with “the e-map of the historic Taipei City: Easy Go” that can be used by backpackers in real scenarios.
Echoing with the spirits of Taiwan’s 12-year compulsory education that entail “taking the initiative,” “engaging the public,” and “seeking the common good,” we allow students to integrate the abilities of “diverse thinking,” “systematic organization,” “innovative application,” and “real life practice” in real scenarios via interdisciplinary themed learning, the use of new technologies, and teamwork. Our goal is to cultivate a world citizen who is “initiative in learning, capable of deep thinking, a great team worker, brave enough to take actions, and equipped with knowledge of humanities and culture.”
Under Principal Fang, Hui-Qin’s technological leadership, the school has gradually metamorphosed into a “smart school encouraging thinking.” Integration is made possible with the school’s “technology cloud” and teachers can collaborate and share stuff with each other by “developing the teachers’ platform for lesson preparation.” There is also a “model comprising highly interactive classroom scenarios combined with TBL” in place that will add vibrancy to teachers’ teaching and make it more elaborate. We, teachers, are now capable of precisely and quickly tracking students’ learning results with the auxiliary, systematic, and analytic help form the “multifaceted evaluation system” and “analytic and diagnostic system.”
With the upcoming promotion of the program called “a thousand teachers make millions of talents”, the school will spread the seed of “using technologies judiciously to increase students’ ability to think” to every corner of the campus.
