Tainan education center makes good use of it driven teaching

all primary and secondary school students in Tainan City, in addition to submitting paper-based homework, they also initially found that PEUU is more fragile under high strain rates and can submit homework through the VoIP voice platform. Students can directly call the teacher's dedicated voice message to say the oral practice of English class and the Taiwanese reading homework of local language class. The teacher can listen to each student's voice message through the page interface. The easiest way is to hand in your homework. Students can use it even if they can't type in Chinese. Usually class time is limited, and only a few students can actually read aloud. This way can really give every student the opportunity to practice oral English

many primary and secondary schools in counties and cities have built VoIP platforms, but most of them are used to save school fees and allow teachers and administrators to connect with each other. However, Tainan Education Network Center (referred to as Tainan Education Center for short) has a different approach. It not only saves money, but also extends VoIP to teaching applications. Only after voice operations are converted into digital data through the VoIP platform can they be integrated with other learning systems. This is a learning method driven by it

Tainan Education Network Center began to make good use of various IT technologies to assist the education of primary and secondary schools very early. Lin Shouren, director of the center, actively planned to introduce VoIP in 2004, purchased 500 pieces of hardware (SIP phones), and each school distributed 6 pieces to key figures. Adopt the cost saving scheme of the second type of telecom operators to build an IPT environment with SIP server as the core and even with black spots. It was launched in February, 2005. In 2008, the center also built an interactive voice platform (IVR) that can be used to hold various VOIP voice activities, such as allowing students to hand in voice homework through VoIP

build IPv6 network and a new generation of voice platform

Tainan Education Center received a subsidy from the Ministry of education to upgrade its network architecture in 2009. Lin Shouren, on the one hand, built a network environment that can support IPv6, on the other hand, began to plan a new generation of voipv6 voice platform. The teaching center first built a firewall and intrusion detection system that can support IPv6, then built a wireless base station that supports IPv6, and finally replaced the core router. By the end of 2009, it successfully completed the support of IPv6 environment

because Tainan City's education network adopts the level 2 network structure, no router is set in all primary and secondary schools. All the networks are directly connected to the computer room of the teaching center, and then the sections of each school are managed through the virtual firewall program. Therefore, only the coating has reliable fire performance, light weight (dry density of 514kg per cubic meter), simple structure Long resistance to hydrocarbon fire (with a coating thickness of 23mm, upgrading the equipment in the teaching center can support IPv6, which has little impact on schools. However, linshouren believes that the management tools for IPv6 are not in place. For example, the functions of the IPv6 management tools are less than those of the IPv4 version, and IPv6 packets cannot penetrate the virtual firewall. While building a new generation of network environment, linshouren believes that the academic network can be used as a test platform for emerging technologies, so that new technologies can establish enough He uses scale to drive the technological development of Taiwan manufacturers. Therefore, he also assists Taiwan manufacturers in developing hardware network phones that support IPv6 and IPv4 dual stack. After the terminal and core equipment have been tested, the education center began to deploy voipv6 core equipment and hardware VOIP phones of each school in december2009. The next new year's day, Tainan officially launched a new generation of VoIP platform

Tainan City directly deploys IP in the class classrooms of the school, and cooperates with class II telecom operators to build a sip gateway free of charge to connect the traditional PBX switches, so that the traditional extensions in the school can communicate with the network. In addition to the communication cost in the school, teachers can enjoy a discount rate of 30 ~ 40% when dialing local calls, which can save the overall cost of the school

improve the initiative of each school to import VoIP with an open strategy

when importing VoIP, linshouren did not adopt a turnkey approach and let the teaching center take charge of all the work. Instead, he opened up each school to participate in the construction. For example, he only provided a fixed number of telephones for each school, and each school can purchase them if necessary. "Even if we have a sufficient budget, we will not bear all the expenses. We will try to do half the work so that others can participate," he said He explained that in this way, "the information team leaders of each school will have to seek funds from the principals, and will regard the equipment as their own, and will be more proactive in promoting it to other administrative personnel." On the other hand, this practice can also take care of schools with less resources, and let schools with abundant resources raise additional funds by themselves

linshouren's strategy of bringing everyone together has achieved good promotion results. At present, about 1200 networks have been set up in elementary schools in Tainan City, and up to 85% of the classes and classrooms have been equipped with networks. The Tainan Municipal Education Center has also opened up the city's elementary and middle school teaching staff to apply for personal network numbers. They can communicate with others through the dial-up software on the computer. More than 4000 people have applied

in addition to building VoIP software and hardware systems, linshouren also combines teaching activities with VoIP to improve teachers' willingness to use. The education center has also created an interactive voice platform (IVR) that can be used to hold various VoIP activities, just as the general customer service center guides customers to input data through voice

teachers can create a teaching activity through the page management interface. Each teaching activity can apply for a special network number. As long as students call this number, they can participate in the teaching activity. The voice platform will use voice to guide students to input the class seat number and the assignment number information to be paid, and then start recording the content they want to say

finally, through the page management interface, teachers can see the students' submission of voice homework, download the audio files submitted by students, put them on the class page for sharing, or play them in class

for example, there are teaching activities in junior high school English classes that require students to practice introducing themselves in English. Students can dial the number designated by the English teacher at home. During the process, they can enter the class seat number with the keyboard, and then say the designated oral practice homework. Teachers can listen to each student's voice work through the page management interface

in the past, class time was limited, and only a few students could speak in oral practice in Chinese class. However, through the interactive voice platform of VoIP, every student could practice. Linshouren said, "with the help of new tools, we can achieve universal education that we could not achieve before." Some schools even use the voice platform to hold activities. For example, during the 100th anniversary of the elementary school, alumni are invited to call to share their comments, or a message is held on Mother's day to thank their mother for her kindness

many schools have built VoIP platforms, but most of them are only used to save the original fees, and less extend to teaching activities like Tainan Education Center. VoIP is just one example of how Tainan education center makes good use of it to assist teaching. Since its establishment 16 years ago, the education center has promoted the development of information infrastructure, information education and administrative informatization in primary and secondary schools in Tainan

In 1994, in order to expand Taiwan's academic network to primary and secondary schools, the Ministry of Education asked for pilot counties and cities. At that time, the Tainan Municipal Education Bureau (now the Education Department) applied to Dagang elementary school, which had a relatively successful development in information education. Lin Shouren, who was teaching at Dagang elementary school at that time, was the sponsor of the Tainan Education Network Center project. After the establishment of the center, he also became the director of the center and has been in this position until now

in 1998, the Ministry of education promoted the plan of expanding domestic demand for information education infrastructure. Linshouren said that information education has clearly become an important goal of school education and a basic ability that every teacher must have. To help schools develop information education. In addition to upgrading the existing primary and secondary school networks to 100MB bandwidth lines, linshouren believes that "infrastructure should not only include hardware. For example, the student registration system is the basis for all students' learning records. This is an infrastructure."

before the establishment of the student status system, the education department had to manually collect the number of freshmen returned by each school at the beginning of each semester to determine the number of additional classes. This data will affect the allocation of education funds, the recruitment of teachers, the allocation of classroom space and other policies. However, in order to select a star school, a small number of students will first register in multiple schools and then choose one. As a result, the number of students returned from each school is too high. Coupled with the flow of transfer students, the education department will easily overestimate the number of classes that need to be increased in that year and invest too much educational resources, or delay the increase of classes or the recruitment of teachers in order to wait for the final information

in order to provide more accurate data to assist high-level decision-making, linshouren decided to build a student status system first. Tainan Education Center has developed its own student status system and adopted a centralized web application to replace the original stand-alone student status system of each school. Linshouren first established the ID card number of the students, and then directly imported the basic information of these students from the household administration system. In the future, the annual freshman information will also be directly imported from the household administration system to automatically create the student status information

after the student status system is established, students cannot report to multiple schools at the same time. They must remove their student status from the old school before they can report to the new school. "The new student registration system enables every school and education department to accurately control the number of students."

the Tainan education center first integrated the student status system with the score system to provide the score printing function to improve the willingness of each school to use it, and then successively completed the school administration systems such as counseling, health and training. Linshouren also shared the code of this student status system with other counties and cities, such as Kaohsiung County and Chiayi County

after completing the student status system of elementary school, linshouren further built the national secondary school status system to link the student status data from elementary school to junior high school. After the completion of the student registration system, "subsequent applications are based on the student registration system. Students can use their student ID as a single account. In the future, any new system will have tens of thousands of users without registering an account." Lin Shouren said

for example, the Tainan education center uses the information of the student registration system to conduct normal class allocation, and the system will automatically allocate the class allocation of primary and secondary schools in the city according to the class allocation conditions. Lin Shouren said that, on the one hand, the burden on the administrative staff of the academic affairs office should be reduced, and on the other hand, the students should have a fair right to receive education and avoid class selection by specific people

create a personalized learning environment with cloud computing

for the Information Department of the education center, linshouren believes that technology is only an aid, and education is the main body. Just like making good use of voice technology to assist Chinese education, he wants to use cloud computing to provide students with a personalized and adaptive learning environment

he hopes to establish a network learning environment so that students can use various learning resources through lightweight terminal devices. Lin Shouren said that the screen size of the terminal device can be smaller than that of the iPad or tablet computer, but it should be embedded in students' desks. During class, these devices can be directly recharged by the power system of the desks without being concentrated in a dedicated cabinet. After class, students can take these devices home for use

each student has its own terminal device. The teacher can identify the students using each device, for example, can directly talk to students through the network. The back-end learning system is to
