Information and Communication Technology programme at TKHC comprises several major components including complication applications, artificial intelligence, creative multimedia, digital citizenship, design thinking and computational thinking.
All Grade 7 and Grade 8 students will be equipped with the fundamental computer applications skills, such as typing, word processing, presentations, spreadsheets, websites etc., required to succeed in their academic studies. Apart from basic computer applications, students are introduced to the basics of artificial intelligence. Upon completion of the Foundation Years Programme, students will be equipped with the knowledge and will be encouraged to attempt worldwide recognized certifications on artificial intelligence. In addition, to foster students’ creativity and entrepreneurship, students will be guided and taught with the design thinking model and they will have the opportunity to design and create products and solutions to solve existing problems. Creative Multimedia is also one important element in the ICT curriculum at TKHC as we value the importance of art education in students’ growth and development and skills that will lead students to a wider variety of further studies options. Last but not the least, coding is included to advance students’ computational thinking which has started to be developed from their primary education.
For IGCSE, students will continue to further apply computer application skills that they have learned in junior grades in their studies and will further develop their computer knowledge through the Pearson EdExcel ICT curriculum.
In order to nurture our students to be a responsible digital citizen, and to be able to protect themselves and their own security when they stay active online, we adopt an effective and systematic digital citizenship programme from the Common Sense Education Digital Citizenship Curriculum for all students to ensure our students are aware of their own digital identity, privacy and security, their wellbeing and relationships, any forms of cyberbullying that may happen to them and around them and fake and questionable news and media. We have been awarded as a Common Sense School since 2020 for our effort in promoting digital citizenship.
We believe with such a thorough programme, students will be kept up to date with the latest technology developments and also be equipped with solid foundations of computer literacy and generic skills that are required to succeed in the 21st century.
