Department of Education, Taoyuan City
In 2019, the city won the Intelligent Community of the Year issued by the Intelligent Community Forum. Its "Unlimited Learning" topic fully demonstrated how schools of the city used new digital technology tools to maximize teaching and learning performance. Over the years, the Department has actively promoted smart schools and digital classrooms, creativity education, robotics, maker education and science education, providing students with more platforms to implement their creativity. Students are able to learn by doing, think independently, and develop problem-solving skills, further growing their systematic thinking. In the future, they will be capable of consolidating knowledge from various subjects and fields. At the same time, they are encouraged to participate in competitions to improve their confidence and develop communication, teamwork and other social skills.
Each school will install additional hardware equipment such as self-service book checkout and return machines, librarian workstations, book sterilizers, access sensor doors, library systems, and RFID tagging, etc. The schools will decide on their own the library management system software to mitigate the surge of book checkout after class and streamline manpower. Digital learning areas or special learning areas will also be built according to the learning characteristics of each school to increase the utilization rate of the library by teachers and students.
