IT’S ABOUT HAVING A PIONEERING SPIRIT 

Students have an open and inquiring mind and are encouraged to be creative, innovative and reflective. As a result, students develop the knowledge, the courage and the resilience to contribute effectively and confidently to an ever-changing world. Please read the content below about what our student/teacher’s understanding and implementation of pioneering spirit.

SOLE enhances the STEAM curriculum at Dulwich Puxi

STEAM and technology are ever changing. Global connectivity, smart machines, and new media are just some of the drivers reshaping how we think about the world and the jobs for the children in our future. 

At Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi we want the children to have their eyes wide open to the future. We want our children to understand the world they are growing up in so they can go into the future technological world able to imagine, create and fathom. The Dulwich STEAM curriculum and our new innovative SOLE lab opens the door to this. Last term, I was very honoured to win a highly-coveted, international education award called the “Pioneering Spirit Grant” - a grant that funded groundbreaking ideas. SOLE is one of those.

SOLE stands for "Self Organised Learning Environment” and is the brainchild of the award-winning TED talk speaker Professor Sugata Mitra. In essence, teachers enter the SOLE lab with their students and pose wonderfully rich, open questions such as "What makes us human?" "How do we imagine?" "What is the colour of music?” 

The children then organise themselves within the lab and quickly form their own groups to begin a humming exchange of information, exclamation, thoughts, ideas and conclusions. It is a privilege to see children learning through their fingertips and developing essential future learning, collaborative and creative skills. For this reason, STEAM and SOLE are now integral lessons within our students’ daily learning at Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi.  Come and look at our innovative SOLE lab which is now part of Sugata’s network of Schools in the Cloud, the room certainly has the wow factor, but the real awe and wonder is the learning that takes place in those four walls.  We love this quote from Einstein “You Don’t Have to Know Everything. You Just Have to Know Where to Find It” The SOLE lab will enable our children to truly discover, learn and find our answers themselves, a highly valued and important skill for their future.

Pioneering Spirit initiatives in Dulwich Pudong

Mobile Makerspaces

Mobile makerspaces give students and teachers access to a whole new range of materials and tools that were not available previously in the classroom. The technology they will have available in the carts - the audio/visual tools, robotics kits. 3D printer - will open new pathways of learning, and extend tasks beyond pencil and paper. The intent is not to thrust technology into old lesson plans, but rather enable new tasks and learning objectives that had not been possible before. As a library-led initiative, these mobile makerspaces will not be the domain or directive of any one department. Instead, they will serve as portable interdisciplinary bridges, providing opportunities for students and faculty to connect with each other through shared curiosity and common goals. Just as the library is for everyone, these makerspaces will be as well. However, use of these makerspaces need not be limited to the physical library itself. Given their mobile nature, maker-centred learning will be able take place wherever inspiration strikes, be it in the classroom or the theatre, the gym or the lab.

Pioneering Spirit and Poetry

The aim of our project is to use an online platform and video-conferencing or Skype to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and to promote student voice through poetry and creative writing, using technology to develop the work of the Diversity project. The project reflects the Learning Principle adopted by DCl that 'learning is best when it is personalised. Our main aim is to appoint a virtual-poet-in-residence who will work with pupils through 1: 1 tutorials and whole-year group online workshops. The project is aligned to the Dulwich SE21 Vision as it incorporates entrepreneurship (and the launch of DICE) with the establishment of a school poetry press.

The Adapted Learning Classroom

The Adapted Learning Classroom is aimed solely at improving the learning experiences and outcomes of our Maths students. Creating an adaptable 21stcentury learning space, that allows for collaboration, creativity and enhanced Learning to take place, supports 21st Century Learning. The adapted Learning Classroom will allow for movement away from lecture style layouts within classrooms. The learning environment will be student-led due to the flexibility of the furniture and the capability to write down and enhance ideas literally anywhere. Everywhere becomes a learning space. The hope is that not only will learning outcomes improve in Maths, but that soft-skills such as presentation, communication and risk-taking, will all improve by virtue of being practised and relied upon far more in the learning process, as well as having the resources to enable these to be practised to a standard not currently possible.

SOLE全面提升了上海德威浦西的STEAM课程

STEAM和技术在不断改变,全球互通,智能机器和新媒体等这些只是一些驱动因素来重塑我们该如何思考这个世界和孩子们未来的工作。

在上海德威浦西学校,我们希望孩子们对未来睁大眼睛。 我们希望我们的孩子了解他们正在成长的世界,以便他们能够进入未来技术世界在那里能够发挥想象能力,创造能力和理解能力。上海德威STEAM课程与我们最新的创新型SOLE实验室为此打开了大门。上学期,我有幸获得了一项梦寐以求的国际教育奖,它被誉为“先锋精神奖”,是用于资助具有突破性创意的想法。SOLE是其中之一。

SOLE代表着“自主学习的环境”,这是屡获殊荣的TED演讲者Sugata Mitra教授的心血结晶。从本质上讲,教师与他们的学生一起进入SOLE实验室并提出非常丰富和具有开放性的问题,例如“是什么让我们成为人类?” “我们是如何想象的?” “音乐的颜色是什么?”

然后,孩子们在实验室内自主组织起来,迅速组建自己的小组,开始私下悄声地交换着信息,感受,想法,点子和结论。 很高兴看到孩子们通过指尖敲打键盘进行信息检索并且开发了他们未来必要的学习能力,相互协作和创造性技能。

请来看看我们创造的SOLE实验室,它现在也是Sugata教授在云端网络学校中的一部分,这个教室一定有一些让你感到惊叹的地方,但真正的敬畏和奇迹是这个学习过程就发生在这四面墙里。我们喜欢爱因斯坦的这句话:“你不必知道一切。 你只需要知道在哪里找到它” SOLE实验室将使我们的学生们自己去真正发现,学习和找到答案,这是他们未来的一项非常具有价值并且重要的技能。鉴于此,STEAM和SOLE现已成为了上海德威浦西学生日常学习课程的一个部分。

德威浦东学校开拓精神倡议

移动创客空间

移动创客空间能够让师生们接触到以往在课堂上无法获取的各种全新材料和工具。大家可以在工具车内找到的技术产品,包括:视听工具、机器人组件、3D打印机等,都将为学习开辟新的途径,并将学习任务拓展到纸笔之外。其目的并非将技术填塞进旧的课程计划中,而是为了实现以往无法实现的新任务和学习目标。作为图书馆主导计划的一部分,这些移动创客空间不属于任何一个部门的管辖和指示,相反,今后将会成为移动式跨学科桥梁,为学生和教师们提供通过共同的爱好和目标进行相互联系和沟通的机会。正如图书馆为所有人服务一样,这些创客空间也是如此。然而,在使用时不必局限于实体库本身。鉴于其移动性的特点,以创客为中心的学习活动随时随地都可进行,只要灵感迸发,无论是在教室、剧院、健身房还是实验室都没问题。

开拓精神与诗歌

我们的项目目标是使用在线平台和视频会议或Skype来促进跨学科合作,并采用诗歌和创新写作的方式传播学生心声,利用技术手段培育“多样性”项目的各类成果。该项目体现了德威国际教育集团所遵循的学习原则,即“个性化学习效果最佳”。我们的主要目标是打造一位虚拟住校诗人,通过一对一辅导和全年在线小组研讨的形式与学生们进行互动。该项目与“德威SE21愿景”相契,其中包含了创业(以及DICE的推出)相关内容,并成立了学校诗歌出版社。

课堂大改造

“课堂大改造”项目旨在改善我校数学方向学生的学习体验和成绩。项目为学生们打造了一个与时俱进的21世纪学习空间,能够促进相互协作、创新和强化式学习的开展,为21世纪的学习提供支持。改造后的课堂将实现在教室内开展远离课堂式布局的学习活动,学习环境以学生为主导,因为教具具有灵活性,并且能够在真正意义上让学生随时随地写下创意、强化创意。任何地方都能成为学习空间。我们希望,不仅学生们的数学成绩会因此而提高,而且诸如表达、沟通、冒险等软技巧也都能获得提升,因为届时,学生们将有机会在学习过程中更多地练习和运用此类技巧,且拥有充足的资源,按目前尚无法达到的标准进行练习。
