More than 100 years ago, Nanwu Sages determined to “get rid of the hat of the sick man of East Asia”, “sports is well known in Southern Guangdong”;More than 100 years later, the scholars of SMO planted the seeds of “love of science” for students, and cultivated the backbone of overcoming the “bottleneck technology”. The sense of historical responsibility and social mission remain today.Southern wu practice latent teaching system “, “thinking, the pursuit of” thinking, thinking, thought “the teaching value of science education courses of learning the most can cultivate students’ logical thinking, creative thinking and science education curriculum learning process can cultivate students’ ability of thinking to explore most, depth of science curriculum learning can promote the student thought the height of emotion.Therefore, the school regards the learning of science education curriculum as one of the important contents of the school’s thinking extension curriculum system, and explores the special role of science education curriculum learning in thinking teaching in expanding students’ potential.On January 18, the students of Grade one and grade two of Nanwu Middle School in Guangzhou ushered in the science and technology Festival of this semester. They reported on the stage the learning results of their team’s science and technology projects of the semester, including STEM, biological science, artificial intelligence, artistic creation and so on.In fact, the seeds of science and technology education began to germinate in Nanwu Middle School very early.In 2011, Chen Xiangchun came to Nanwu Middle School as the principal. Since then, he has advocated and led the development of the thinking teaching system based on information development potential in the school, stepping out of the basic education reform attempt.As an extension of thinking teaching, science and innovation courses are an attempt of Nanwu Middle School to adapt to the requirements of the new college entrance examination reform, draw lessons from advanced educational concepts at home and abroad, connect with the new enrollment mode of “strong foundation plan” and “comprehensive quality evaluation”, and cultivate students’ ability of learning, lifelong learning and creative learning.The development of science and technology education has its unique historical background.This is directly related to the expansion of the demand for innovative talents and talents in the core technology fields in the current process of national innovation and development. There is also a large demand for engineering students in some traditional positions of finance, economics and management, and the society is calling for more science and innovation talents.In 2016, Nanwu Middle School deployed and built “Science and Technology Innovation Course” and “Science and Technology Innovation Laboratory” with the characteristic curriculum framework of “ancient style and Blue rhyme” and “Charm of hand”.It has built three high-standard STEM teaching laboratories (academic innovation Space), one Middle school linkage laboratory (biology) for innovative research talents training of Stanford University with advanced facilities, and STEM sub-project laboratory (AI intelligence laboratory, UAV and Navigation Technology Laboratory) of junior Middle School, actively promoting science and technology education.Through the adoption of school-based courses, comprehensive practice activities, extracurricular interest groups (club activities) and other ways to achieve multi-level teaching coverage, the teaching implementation of normal elective courses, school-based courses and other ways, two classes a week, the establishment of a system of scientific and technological innovation course tutor team.Chen Shaoguang, a teacher of Nanwu Middle School, said that in order to make science and innovation education in Nanwu, we have gone through three steps.The first stage is to select appropriate textbooks for introduction, and then carry out multi-disciplinary calls or splicing;The second step is the school-based project transformation in 2018, hoping to bring multiple interdisciplinary applications through a learning project, so that students can solve some realistic scenarios.For example, the science and technology festival of the school on that day included the use of computer games to virtual urban design and architecture and other links, allowing students to think and create in daily life.The third step is to return to the subject class. For a series of interdisciplinary applications such as science and innovation courses, there is a consideration of “turning back” — that is, how to combine with the traditional subject class, extend the depth of thinking teaching, and cover the whole subject with this way of thinking, so as to realize the transition from learning to application.Chen shaoguang said, “Since 2016, we have held science and technology innovation report every semester, and the study of science and technology innovation project has realized the full coverage of middle and high schools.”At present, Nanwu Middle School is building CCAE Science Senior High School, constructing “one body” and “two wings” science senior high school curriculum system, and cultivating students’ ability of learning, lifelong learning and creative learning.Among them, “integration” refers to “taking the national curriculum as the main body”;The “two wings” refer to “innovative laboratory curriculum development” and “Honors Courses” (competitive courses).In the science and technology session, students presented the final report, which is the learning result of the innovative laboratory course.In addition, nanwu Middle School also promotes science and technology innovation education by constructing eight science and technology innovation laboratories, providing students with school-based elective courses, comprehensive practical activities, extracurricular interest groups (club activities, project study groups) and other forms, providing students with a comprehensive quality teaching environment and supporting support.The extension of thinking teaching Chen Shaoguang said that if the teaching of thinking as a framework on reform of the teaching as a whole, then discipline teaching is one of the most easy to cut into parts, mobilize the students’ thinking in the teaching to a peak, then the test is not the only export, this time a series of elective course will provide students with knowledge of exports.A large part of these electives are science and innovation courses.He gave an example. A student majoring in artificial intelligence project in grade 2 upgraded his vehicle protection device to version 3.0 this year on the basis of upgrading equipment to participate in science and technology innovation competition for two consecutive years.Last year’s version 1.0 won the second prize in the invention category of Guangzhou Youth Science and Technology Innovation Competition, and this year’s version 2.0 was selected for the final award of Guangdong Youth Invention Award.This student already has the prototype of version 3.0 in mind and is ready to participate in the new science and technology innovation competition in the second half of the year.”It is an important mark of their achievement that such students can have an iteration of creativity in the course of study. In the past, we would find that traditional science and innovation courses, if they were only based on interest groups or associations, would pass without continuity of research.”Therefore, it is not difficult to find that science and innovation education improves students’ thinking ability and creativity to a new level.In order to further improve students’ thinking ability, science and technology education in Nanwu Middle School focuses on the integration of subjects, and designs teaching projects from the Angle of interdisciplinary from the beginning of lesson preparation.In terms of evaluation, “10 days (one learning cycle) learning project log” is used as process evaluation, “periodic learning self-evaluation form” is used as phase termination evaluation, and “project group, class and grade achievement sharing meeting” is used as learning effect evaluation.Multivariate evaluation promotes students’ learning and guides students to think like engineers and solve problems according to the process of scientific inquiry or the method of engineering practice through interdisciplinary integrated courses.In this process, students construct knowledge and skills to achieve the goal of cultivating inner comprehensive ability.In fact, science and technology innovation education is only a miniature of the thinking teaching system of Nanwu University. Since the reform of thinking teaching system has been carried out, the potential of students in Nanwu University has been greatly expanded. In recent years, science and technology competitions have won many awards, which also answers the question of what kind of course learning method nanwu university needs to expand the potential of students.Thinking is the core of the improvement of students’ key ability, and the thinking teaching system cultivates students’ disciplinary thinking ability. The substantial improvement of college entrance examination results fully shows that scientific thinking training is of great benefit to the improvement of students’ comprehensive quality.Further speaking, the significance of the thinking teaching system is far-reaching. Through the teaching of “the depth of thinking activities, the strength of thinking training, and the height of thinking and emotion”, there is not only “the present”, but also “distant” and responsibility.First of all, through the training of thinking teaching system, nanwu students’ ability of applying subject knowledge to raise questions, analyze problems and solve problems has been improved.Secondly, the thinking teaching system enriches students’ learning styles.Students have developed from the original routine process of listening to lectures and doing homework to thinking and inquiry-based classroom learning, from interdisciplinary project learning to integrated thematic practice learning.The third is to improve the school curriculum system, improve the scientific and technological literacy of students, forming a configuration of one and two wings: one is to cultivate virtue, the two wings are humanistic literacy and scientific and technological literacy.People have thought a lot about education.Grades are no longer the only goal for schools these days. In addition to good grades, forward-thinking schools are thinking about how to make students more creative and thoughtful.Guangzhou Nanwu Middle School takes “educating people first, expanding potential” as the school philosophy, insists on “educating people through scientific innovation”, improves the thinking teaching system through scientific innovation education, creates a humanistic environment suitable for students’ development, and is lighting up the future of every student.Author: Gao Fan
