ICT

The Department of Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

The Department of ICT at TTCA aims to foster students’ computer literacy with an understanding of the fundamental concepts of computers and common computing terminology.  Students are expected to 

  • appreciate the modern development of information technology and the impact of ICT on our knowledge-based society so as to nurture of positive values and attitudes towards the area;

  • be equipped with essential knowledge, concepts and applications of information, communication and the computer system;

  • develop creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and communications skills via development of simple computer programs and mobile applications running on smart devices;

  • become competent, effective, discriminating, ethical and confident ICT users who are aware of computer-related social issues and the ever changing society with widespread utilization of computers.

Curriculum Information

Junior curriculum

In line with STEM education, we aim to foster students to become a “maker” instead of a “user”; TTCA students can be a “creator” instead of just a “consumer”.  They can create something unique while applying their knowledge from Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. ICT lessons in the junior years allow students to build a system to solve daily life problems. Their term projects include a home security alarm system which alerts users of any intrusion into their homes through an App.

Senior curriculum 

We aim to provide students with a body of essential knowledge, concepts and applications of information, communication and computer systems; equip students with problem-solving and communication skills, and encourage them to think critically and creatively; nurture students into competent, effective, discriminating, ethical and confident users of ICT to support their lifelong learning; and ultimately provide students opportunities to appreciate the impacts of ICT on our knowledge-based society to nurture positive values and attitudes towards this area.

Outside the Classroom

Reading promotion: students are encouraged to read more books, magazines or surf websites related to ICT.  All S3 students need to complete a case study before planning their ICT projects.  For example, last year students were required to study the latest technology in home security systems and they had to come up with ideas for planning and producing a home security system based on the information they gained from reading extensively from books or the Internet. Elite students are encouraged to join external competitions and ICT related courses.

For example, Hong Kong Olympiad Informatics, Asia Inter Schools Robotic Challenge

Visual Arts

The Department of Visual Arts (VA)

The Department of Visual Arts aims to provide a platform for collaborative learning, project-based learning and field trips to broaden students’ visions of Arts.  We acknowledge the history of arts in a sense that we, our civilizations, need to understand the past, regardless of whether inventions or obstacles, and transform such understanding into works that shine. Throughout the course, students are nurtured with good values so that their potential and leadership in the arts can be maximized. We also aim to create a sense of belonging to the school by promoting an inviting campus atmosphere.

Curriculum Information

Junior Curriculum

The Department of Visual Arts offers structured theme-based projects for students to appreciate the history of art and design in their junior years.  We adopt a modular approach by introducing various art and design movements and media, providing a broaden understanding of what arts and design in context related to their life and history.  Through project-based learning, students can enjoy the flexibility in the scope of their projects while flourishing their individual artistic developments.

Senior Curriculum

In their senior forms, students will explore a variety of ways to investigate their relationship with arts.  Based on the HKDSE syllabus, the senior form curriculum not only focuses on developing art appreciation skills and critical thinking skills; but also provides students various local and overseas field trip experiences. Technical skills in art productions are then developed in S.5 and S.6 in order to enable students to visualize the concepts into a piece of art that transcends personal understanding of their chosen topic.

Outside the Classroom

We acknowledge that every opportunity in learning is crucial to students by organizing local and overseas learning trips over the years.  Apart from Taiwan Learning Trip (collaborating with the Liberal Studies Department), Germany and Austria Learning Trip (collaborating with the Music Department), this year we will work with the Department of Science to organize a “STEAM” learning trip to Finland.  Above all, every year, our students participate in a variety of activities and services in arts including:

  1. Art Marathon @ Sham Shi Po

  2. M+ Rover Scheme

  3. Various museum visits, e.g.

    • “Contemplator Artist of China Exhibition” @Asian Society

    • “Conversation” Modern Hong Kong Artist Exhibition @Osage

  4. Community project

  5. Art Ambassadors Training Program (held by Hong Kong Arts Council)
