Holistic Development Approach

The school curriculum design is based on the ideology of American Multiple Intelligences Education by Howard Gardner (1983) and Chinese Six Arts Education in “Rites of Zhou”
(770 B.C.-476 B.C.), and integrated into four major areas namely Moral Education, Bilingual Education, Innovation Education and All-round Education. The school curriculum incorporates the essence of the US Common Core Standards Curriculum and the IB Curriculum, combined with China Stardard Curriculum to promote Bilingual Education. The curriculum focus on eliciting students’ potential and enlightening students’ wisdom. It aims to enable children to learn with pleasure and pursue excellence.

Wisdom Condensation Paradigm

Theoretical Framework for Wisdom Condensation

Knowledge and Intelligence building for Wisdom Condensation is the major concern in future trend of education. In recent years, schools are striving to be first on developing Cyber-community on top of traditional School-Community for promoting modernized education. According to the Strategies of Knowledge Management in Education and Theory of Knowledge Conversion Cycle (Nonaka & Takeuchi, 1995), the Collaborative Learning in Cyber-Community and School-Community focuses on Knowledge and Intelligence Building, and eventually leading to Wisdom Condensation.

Knowledge Conversion Cycle in Cyber-Community

The Cyber-Community provides the Collaborative Learning Environment for students to communicate with stakeholders including professionals, teachers, parents, classmates and netizens at anytime, anywhere. Hence through the Knowledge Conversion Cycle in Cyber-Community, new knowledge and intelligence are built gradually.

Knowledge Conversion Cycle in School-Community

The School-Community is the environment where individual learning as well as group Collaborative Learning are conducted. Knowledge and Intelligence are strengthened through the Knowledge Conversion Cycle by developing discussion culture between individuals and groups in the classroom.

Learning in Future Classroom

Future Classroom is a boundaryless learning environment that connected to the global world. The backend is a multi-platform which is designed for the students to access the Mac-based, PC-based and Android-based resources, application packages, school-based learning resources and administration system in the Cloud. The frontend is equipped with Dual-Interactive Touch-Panel and Tablets/Smart-Phones in forming a Collaborative Learning Environment to establish the cultures of Interactive-Classroom, Discussion-Classroom and Feedback-Classroom to promote the Knowledge and Intelligence Building.

Actual practice on Collaborative Learning in Cyber-Community and School-Community will stimulate the students’ Higher-order Thinking, Knowledge and Intelligence Building, and will lay a foundation of Wisdom Condensation Paradigm.
