The Karl Educational Philosophy

We are a high-tech high school providing students with hope and direction while building their confidence and providing them with the tools they need to be successful in life anywhere in the world. At our school, students will learn to think both creatively and critically, develop a lifelong passion for learning with an international perspective and build technical skills to prepare themselves for the future.

I have been involved in education for more than ten years and fully understand how crucial it is to improve the international mobility of Taiwanese students. Since students in Taiwan will need to work with and compete with people from other parts of the world, it is critical that we educate students to prepare them for international collaboration, competition, and mobility. Understanding the international community, developing an international perspective, and becoming a global citizen with a national identity, international literacy, global competitiveness and global responsibility are all very important things for our students to learn.

At the same time, in order to cope with the impact of this era of globalization, we need to make sure children have strong communication, resilience, professionalism, creativity, and ability to apply what they learned onto the real world. Given this modern world of globalization, building skills and enabling international mobility are the primary purposes for establishing Karl International Experimental Education Institute. With the flexibility of experimental education, this institution amends the traditional approach to education and provides a new approach to help children learn foreign languages, grasp a global perspective, volunteer locally/internationally, and gain technical knowledge. We also use a mix of local and international textbooks, different learning methods and multiple assessment techniques to support this new approach. All this gives our students the freedom to choose where in the world they want to work and live.


卡爾的堅持與理念

我們的設立目的為透過實驗教育的鬆綁與創新理念,輔導學生實現夢想,培養出既能立足台灣,又有能力參與國際事務或走向國際社會的世界公民。為發展學生全人教育概念中「體恤心、尊重感、好奇心、自我實現」的素養,計畫營造一個讓學生覺得開放且溫暖的學習氛圍,也設計可以發展學生「創造力、專業力、適應力、溝通力、實踐力」五力的課程,以涵養學生對「國際移動力」之實踐。目前台灣產業正由傳統的製造業尋求轉型與升級,下一世代的學子應該做更好的準備,多運用語言工具(英文、中文或第二外語)及數位知能去探索廣大的世界。若學生能清楚自己的定位與優勢能力,並具有國際視野的涵養、參與國際事務,落實社會實踐,無論是對學生的自我實現或是對台灣未來的國力都極為重要。此外,根據許多實務經驗,身處異國的學生們對自己的傳統文化有很深厚得情感,因此規劃在教學設計與實施的過程中融合在地文化,達到全球在地化、在地全球化的教學目標。
