Computer Literacy and ICT
Through the junior computer literacy and senior ICT program, students can
- develop knowledge and understanding of computer systems and information technology.
- develop the capability to process and present information, to express ideas, and to collaborate with peers effectively using technology tools.
- be aware of the validity and reliability of information, and the ethical issues in technology.
- develop responsible and positive attitudes towards the use of technology.
- develop computational thinking skills and ability to design programs to solve problems.
Form 1-3 Computer Literacy
The junior computer literacy is a school-based curriculum which covers the following topics
- Google Suite in daily learning activities
- Collecting and presenting data using Google Form, Google Sheets, and Google Slides
- Word processing (using Google Docs)
- Touch typing
- Basic programming concepts
- Programming with micro:bit
- Video editing and production
- Spreadsheets basics
- Python programming
- Data processing in spreadsheets
- Computer systems - computer organisation, binary and character encoding
Form 4-6 ICT
The senior program follows the DSE ICT curriculum, which covers the following topics in the compulsory part:
- Information Processing
- Computer System Fundamentals
- Internet and its Applications
- Computational Thinking and Programming
- Social Implications
“Databases” and “Algorithm and Programming” will be covered in the elective parts.
For details, please refer to the EDB Curriculum and Assessment Guide.
A variety of learning and teaching approaches are used to facilitate self-regulated learning for students with different interests and skill levels, such as:
At junior levels, there is at least one project-based assessment item. To further stretch students’ abilities, students with an interest in technology are encouraged to join the ECA Programming Training Team, and to participate in a wide range of competitions and activities.
Activities and Achievements
An interactive Drama (organized by Hong Kong Drama Education Studio) was held on 29/11/2021 for Form 1-2 students to learn about the intellectual properties
12 ICT students joined International Coding Elite Challenge 2022 (New Territories - Secondary Division), organised by Hong Kong Association for Computer Education, ICE Foundation and Cyberport. 8 students were awarded “outstanding coder” and 2 got “Top coder”.
The ECA Programming training team - senior students are teaching Python. 9 meetings were held in 2021/22.
The school has joined IT Innovation Lab in Secondary Schools. In School Year 2021/22, our school has
o two STEM days (11/7, 12/7) in which student workshop and competition included. In the student competition, leveraging the arena function of a coding platform, students competed in a gamified environment using their own code,
o two coding courses in which both basic and advanced Python concepts such as data types, functions, loops, and arrays were introduced, and
o one advanced course on Financial Technology (FinTech) & Blockchain Applications.
10 senior form students joined the 18-hour AI Literacy Program organized by EduHK in July 2022. They are presenting their AI group project in the final lesson.
