Philosophy

Learning Without Walls

The narrow sense concept of learning without walls was raised by Mark D. Weiser, a computer scientist and chief technology officer at Xerox PARC, which means student learning everywhere. We will implement the concept of learning without walls, which intends to create a learning environment that is supported by mobile and embedded computers and wireless networks in our everyday life. At the initial stage, we have formulated plans for students learning in the family, the community as well as music halls, museums and the nature, which will provide students with international mind-set and get familiar with Chinese traditional culture. We also break down the barriers of traditional classrooms, leveraging on distance learning platforms and Skype, to make share global education resources in a variety of subjects and disciplines. We organise students for study trips both at home and abroad, and encourage them to participate in different contest and competitions in art and PE, which is aimed to provide them with all sorts of learning activities.

Studying with High Technology

We encourage students to study with high technology. Bantian region in Shenzhen is considered as an important element of hi-tech industry, which has attracted dozens of well-known enterprises. The importance of technology is emphasised in our mission. We focus on fostering students’ abilities in making use of hi-tech products, making them better at imagination and creativity. All classrooms, laboratories, sports equipment and other facilities within our new campus, are able to meet the latest technological requirements.

Building Global Networking

We guide students to build up their global network through external interaction with the outside world. We focus on students’ communication skills and encourage students to learn more languages. As the society puts a high emphasis on international mindedness and cross-cultural awareness, it is important for our students to be grounded with Chinese culture and be open-minded at the same time. Based on the powerful education resources within the IB organization (IBO), we will create a good network for international partnership, and develop our students as international elites.

Upholding Moral Education

Moral education is indispensable with the long Chinese history. This coincides with core values in international education, such as respect, responsibility, friendliness, fairness, sharing, etc. Based on IB learner profile, we encourage students to become principled, open-minded, reflective learners and treasure their own cultural essence. We believe that it is highly important for students to have wholesome personality and high moral standards.

Integrating Chinese and Western Culture

As an international school rooted in China, we integrate the Western value with the Chinese value, inherit Chinese culture and make best use of the strength in tradition Chinese education, while leveraging on advance philosophy for education. We actively explore a unique path to develop the international education in China. The school leadership team (SLT) focuses on adequate communication and collaboration between local and expatriate staff members, which intends to provide a good learning experience with balanced and harmonious inputs of both Chinese and Western cultures.

办学使命

深圳外国语学校(龙岗)国际部致力于推行国际文凭组织(IBO)严厉而全面的价值,在学生心中播撒清晰的道德标准,旨在塑造具备国际素养并深谙中国文化的科技领袖。

办学愿景

学校价值观

具备全球视野、追求科技创新、理解文化传承、保持克制谦虚

办学理念

一 构建“泛在”大课堂

狭义的泛在学习是在二十世纪八十年代由施乐首席科学家马克.维瑟提出,利用网络实现学生无时无处的学习。但学校认为科技只是一种学习的手段,更重要的是要帮助学生打破学校的围墙,在家庭、社区和社会的时时处处为学生有意识地创建学习的隐性课堂,实施我们的育人理念。学校设计了家庭课堂,社区课堂,国内外的音乐厅课堂,博物馆课堂及自然课堂等来打开学生的国际视野并熟悉中国的传统文化。学校试图打破传统教室中可见和无形的界线,充分利用Skype和远程学习平台与全球分享教育资源,组织学生到境内外参加学习,鼓励学生参加国内外艺术、体育竞赛等多种形式共同营造泛在大课堂。

二 推进“高新”大交互

学校所在地深圳龙岗坂田地区是深圳高新技术产业带的重要组成部分,辖区内聚集了多家国内外知名科技企业,他们是深圳在国际舞台上的闪亮名片。学校的使命强调科技的重要性,着重培养学生使用高科技产品的能力,培养学生想象与创新能力。新校园的教室、实验室、体育设施和其它学习区域的硬件设施都能满足各项课程结合高科技的要求。

三 打造“国际”大网络

学校寻求与外部世界的往来交互,引导学生创建国际关系网络。学校注重培养学生的沟通技巧,并鼓励学生掌握多门语言。当今社会格外重视国际视野和跨文化意识,学校坚信深谙中国文化与开放包容同等重要。通过IBO的强大学校资源,学校将为学生创建良好的国际关系网络,让学生成为国际型的精英人才。

四 培养“德育”大格局

中国五千多年的历史文化与重视德育教育密不可分。而这与国际教育理念中的关心尊重他人、责任感、友善、公平、共享等核心价值理念不谋而合。因此,有鉴于IB学习者特质,学校鼓励学生成为坚守原则、思想开放、善于反思的学习者,尊重并珍惜自己的文化传统,同时也尊重并重视他人的文化传统。学校重视学生的品德教育,强调在学生成为精英人才的过程中,应该拥有健全的人格、高尚的品德。

五 融贯“中西”大文化

作为一所在中国的国际学校,学校传承中国文化,发挥中国传统教育的专长,结合先进、优秀的国际教育理念,积极探索,大胆创新一条具有中国特色国际学校的大道。从学校的管理层到教师队伍都注重中外方教育工作者的充分沟通和协作,并在校园中构建中西文化和谐共育的良好学习体验。

Building Strong Communities through the Arts通过艺术建立强大的社区
Ms. Barbara Grotowska

When I first came to Shenzhen in 2011 the popular slogan caught my attention: "You are a Shenzhener as soon as you get here". Frankly, as much as I wanted to make this new place my home, for years I still felt like an outsider. I had a family, friends, and acquaintances, but no sense of belonging.
