11. School’s brief history

 

National Hsinchu Commercial Vocational High School (i.e., HCCVS) was founded in April 1940, during the Japanese Occupation Era, formerly known as “Shinchiku (Hsinchu) Prefecture Commercial School.”. After World War II, the school was renamed “Taiwan Provincial Hsinchu Commercial Vocational School” and was extended to a six-year school, with a three-year Junior and a three-year Senior High division. In 1968, after compulsory education was extended to nine years, the school suspended the junior high division, developing into a complete commercial vocational high school. In 1974, the school started to set up several departments and divisions. To date, there are three departments called International Trade, Data Processing, and Applied English. To cater to the variety of students’ needs, another three divisions are directed to set up—Practical Skill Programs (1983), Department of Management of Logistics and Distribution (1983), and the Department of Academy (2005). Currently, the school has 48 classes, around 1553 students in total.

12. School features

      The value of HCCVS was established in the school motto “conscientiousness, honesty, sincerity, and discretion.” Based on the spirit, the school is dedicated to developing students’ sense of responsibility and passion for learning. By nurturing students’ spirit of team-work and cooperation, teachers are dedicated to developing and broadening students’ views as well as a sincere and sensitive temperament. With the motto in mind, the school has cultivated many excellent alumni, such as Fai-Nan Perng (the Governor of the Central Bank of Taiwan) and Junq-Jzer Lin (the 2001-2009 Hsinchu City Mayor). Because of faith in the motto, the school believes that every student will become a person of responsibility, honesty, and caring for others.

     To date, there are four departments plus one program set up in school. They are International Trade Department, Data Processing Department, Applied English Department, and the Department of Academy. Each department has different educational goal. The goal of International Trade Department is to cultivate students’ potential in international trade; thus, students are required to take business-related courses, such as economics and international trade affairs. The Data Processing Department aims to equip students with useful computer skills, like webpage design and basic computer programming. The Applied English Department mainly expects to broaden students’ scope of knowledge by offering various courses, such as English campus guided tour and Hsinchu guided tour. As for the Department of Academy, students are expected to have comprehensive knowledge of the academic field, like social science and natural science. Above all, getting certificates is important for students in every department. Since certificates are like access to college as well as to jobs after graduation. Hence, students are encouraged to obtain certificates related to accounting, computer software application, web page design, international trade management, and, most importantly, TOEIC before graduation.

      Our school has sister schools in Japan and South Korea. The teachers and students from those schools visit our school annually. During their visit, our students go to great lengths to make great memories for them. Moreover, the students from Department of Applied English get used to hosting exchange students from other countries through Rotary International since 2012. The exchange students stay for a school year, which provides our students

with opportunities to learn from other cultures. In fact, the chances of foreign visitors coming to our school have been increasing over the years, and our students never fail to impress the guests with their hospitality.

4. Proposed online teaching programs

      The proposed online teaching programs mainly focus on two courses—Creative Project Implementation, and Project Implementation. Both courses are PBL (Phenomenon/Problem/ Project-based learning) oriented. The programs aim to develop a series of PBL tasks integrated with STEAM-based lessons, through which students are expected to explore the SDGs-related issues, to enhance the cross-cultural knowledge, communication skills, as well as problem-solving skills, and most importantly, to embrace cultural diversity.

      The teaching programs integrate the learning areas into the design of learning tasks as follows: Contemporary Issues in Modern Society, Business Marketing Skills, Filed Survey, Questionnaire Design and Analysis, City English Guided Tour, and 3D-Printing Skills, etc. In the very beginning, students will be guided to do scenario analysis in their surroundings and select an issue or a research topic. In this phase, students are guided to explore and investigate the issue they care about. Then, the aforementioned learning tasks will be incorporated to guide students to develop their project. Students are engaged in acquiring the data-collecting skills, analysis strategies, and critical thinking abilities. They are expected to tackle the issue with those competences and strategies. In this phase, students will collaborate with each other in order to come up with a realistic plan to deal with the issue. In the end, students will hold an online exhibition or seminar to share their products or research findings with students from overseas sister schools.  If time and long-distance environment is allowed, more interaction and feedback are expected. Hopefully, students can exchange different cultural viewpoints with each other.

5. Opportunities and benefits from cooperation

     This online program is a good chance for students of each side to exchange their viewpoints with several PBL tasks. Besides language exchange, the interaction of cross-cultural values counts more. Moreover, through project implementation, students are expected to better their public communication skills, cross cultural literacy, business promotion skills, information and technology application abilities, and most importantly, social and global issue concern competencies.

      The benefits from cooperation are as follows:

1. The interactive programs engage students into exploring the real-world problems, arousing students’ awareness and interest in tackling the issues ranging from local ones to global ones.

2. Through information and viewpoints, students are believed to facilitate each side to identify, locate and access appropriate information sources and even to evaluate the quality, appropriateness and value of that information, as well as its sources.

3.The project encourages students to discuss the important themes of the Sustainable Development Goals with the overseas sister high schools, through which students are expected to improve their English communication skills and broaden their global views, and become global citizens.
