Full campus WiFi coverage
In order to support the school and the teaching force to deliver their eLearning curriculum in different KLAs, LTFC has joined the "Support Scheme for e-Learning in Schools" (WiFi 100) offered by the Education Bureau. The WiFi 100 Scheme aims at providing funding to schools to reinforce WiFi infrastructures to supplement the implementation of e-textbooks and other e-learning resources in class. With the introduction of this scheme, over 90% of the school campus, including all the classrooms, laboratories, special rooms, staff rooms, library and gymnasiums is now within WiFi coverage. Stable WiFi coverage also facilitates the use of Apple TV for iPad projection.
Advanced audio and visual equipment
In order to enhance the visibility of graphic display as well as audience's visual effects, two 120-inch LED Screen display have also been installed on the two sides of the School Hall. With the use of P3 LED module, the LED screen supports High Definition graphic display.
To replace the old-fashioned long shot projectors, a 260-inch LED display wall has been installed in the K P Fan Hall. With the use of P4 LED modules, the screen also supports High Definition graphic display that catches the attention of the audience.
To enrich and enhance the audience's visual experience, the audio system has been replaced with a professional-standard, concert-level line array speakers and WiFi controlled audio mixers. With the high-end audio and visual equipment, the quality of sounds has been enhanced. Besides the AV equipment installed in the School Hall, LED display has been installed in various locations in the campus for broadcasting educational video clips and information about school events:
- a 100 inches TV wall on the G/F
- a LED Digital signage display at the entrance of the New Annex facing the School Gate
- a 65-inche TV at playground and 1/F English café
According to The Education Bureau, STEAM education offers the opportunities for students to become lifelong learners of science, technology and mathematics so they can meet the challenges of the 21st century. It also helps nurture versatile talents in STEAM-related areas to enhance Hong Kong's competitiveness and sustainable development in the realm of innovation technology and science.
STEAM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEAM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
The establishment of the STEM education/research centre is one major measures to live up to the school vision to lead the local education by integrating academic, sports and innovative design activities to develop and nurture future community leaders, sports professionals, accomplished academics, upright citizens and cultured individuals in the 21st century.
Maker Laboratory is comprised of three zones:
- Virtual Reality(VR) Zone
- Robotics Research Zone
- 3D Design and Printing Zone
The Maker Laboratory is a cutting-edge STEM education/ research centre which is located on the 2/F of the New Annex. To nurture our students' creativity, collaboration and problem solving skills, as well as to foster their innovation and entrepreneurial spirit as required in the 21st century, our school has built the Maker Laboratory to provide a space to inspire and empower our students to develop the STEM knowledge, skills and mindsets that are necessary to thrive in a technologically rich society. Therefore, students are encouraged to use the Maker Laboratory for STEM research and experiments. The Maker Laboratory, equipped with innovative and advanced technology, provides an authentic STEM learning environment for students with potential and passion in science, Mathematics and ICT to acquire skills and receive practical training in coding, robotics and cross-disciplinary creations.
