做我们的大家长吧,工程师魔王!Outstanding Engineer in FCG Early Year School

如果不是亲眼所见,我们很难相信,号称“魔王专业”的Engineering,培养出了一个沉稳细致又活泼爱笑的幼儿园“大家长”。

How one engineer went from civil and mechanical designing to early year teaching?

 

 




Fayi老师来自加拿大,毕业于世界排名第16的多伦多大学,工程专业。在校期间,是学校工程团队的首席设计师,主责复杂的土木和机械设计;且拥有将3D设计软件应用于工程和产品设计的深厚功力。

Fayi is an engineer from the University of Toronto. The University of Toronto ranks 16th overall in the world and 18th in engineering. He was the lead designer for his engineering team in school, creating complex civil and mechanical designs. He also has a very strong background in using 3D design software in engineering and product design.

 

一个戴眼镜、工装马甲工装裤、满脸认真严肃的形象就已经浮现在脑海里。

Glasses, nerdy, geeky, serious......What does Fayi look like?

“工程师大魔王”Fayi Lin广州斐特思幼儿园的STEAM课程老师。

近年来,STEAM(科学、工程、技术、艺术和数学)是教育领域的热点话题。

而在幼儿园开展STEAM课程,我们应如何帮助小朋友们理解科学原理?

How should we help children understand STEAM?

STEAM学习对幼儿启智有什么帮助?

Why STEAM education is so important for children?

Fayi老师有自己的见解

An engineer's view of STEAM education.

一、STEAM是一种整合

STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics

 

随着社会的进步,我们的孩子需要在早期学习很多东西,以备他们在未来保有竞争力。通常,我们会提供很多的工具,包括科学类、技术类、数学类等等,让孩子们可以尝试使用他们在课堂上学到的各种技能,并把它们组合在一起,来达成他们的想法和计划。

As society progresses forward, there's a lot more that our children have to learn early, that they can be competitive in the future. Usually, we try to give more tools from sciences, technology, math……everything, so they can try to use skills they learn in class and put together to achieve their think and plan.

二、STEAM是一种体验

STEAM education is an authentic experience

 

我希望鼓励孩子们真正去探索什么是 STEAM。事实上STEAM课程看重的不是去教孩子们某种特定技能,而是让他们去体验。现在我们正做的是用跨学科课程来整合所有他们需要学习的科目,并把这些零零碎碎的东西带到他们的日常学习环境中;并且鼓励他们多多走出教室去完成项目式学习。这样日积月累,我们的孩子就可以在往后的学习过程中领先一步。

I want to encourage our children to explore what STEAM is. STEAM really is not to teach them, it’s for them to experience. What we try to do is that we use our transdisciplinary curriculum to incorporate all those subjects that they need to learn and bring those bits and pieces into their learning environment, and to help them go outside, do some project-based learning, so that they can get a head start in their learning journey.

三、STEAM是一种自信快乐

Confidence and happiness grow through STEAM education

 

STEAM课程能够给予孩子们的这种综合学习体验,从而让他们对学习产生浓厚的兴趣。今后,当孩子们开始学习这些单项科目时,他们会恍然大悟,“哇,我以前做过这样的实验!”。这总能给予他们极大的成就感,还可以拿回家,向他们的家人和朋友展示。

我们幼儿园的孩子有自主学习的能力。他们自发学得更多,因为这是他们喜欢做的事情。孩子们的学习的过程中不断取得各种成果,而这些成果给他们带来极大的自信。所以说,STEAM课程给予了孩子们幸福感,因为他们通过一次次综合实验,身体力行且真正感知到了学习的快乐和完成的满足感。

It is more important to give them this experience so they become interested in learning. When they start really learning about all those subjects, they can say, “wow, I've experienced that before”. They always get a really strong sense of accomplishment.  And this is something they can take home, show their parents and friends.

Our children are really responsible for their learning. They're learning a lot more because they love what they're doing. They’re learning and making something out of it, and they're getting a sense of confidence from what they have achieved at the end. And it really gives them that sense of happiness because they have really learned it physically and emotionally through that one experience that they really cared about.

可对于Fayi老师来说,自己的定位可不仅仅是一个STEAM teacher.

“我首先是一个幼儿园班主任!”

"I am an EY4 class teacher!"

工程师认真地说。

 

 


那作为一个班主任需要关注到的,就是孩子们的方方面面了

An EY class teacher must care about every aspect of children's life.

 

我是所有孩子的家长。

Fayi: I am the parent for all my students.

 

作为一个幼儿园班主任,我的使命就是帮助孩子们在学校健康地成长。这就像是孩子们的家长一样。作为他们的“大家长”,我不仅关注他们学术方面的学习,更关心教育方方面面。比如他们吃的怎么样;他们的感受如何;他们与同龄人的交往是否足够;他们是否能够完成既定的任务;他们的理想是什么;他们未来想从事什么工作……这些事情是我一定要去做的,我要指导孩子们,为他们的努力指引方向。

My role as a class teacher in the early years is to really help foster our children grow in school. It's almost like being their parent. And being their parent, I am not just looking at their educational and academic learning, but care about every aspect of their learning. Like how are they eating; how are they feeling; are they socializing with their peers enough; are they able to accomplish what they wanted in their task; what are their aspirations; what do they want to do……There are many things that I have to help them, guide them, and give them a structure that they really strive in.

我是一个严格的家长。

Fayi: I have a very strict structure.

 

我在军队里待了大约五年。所以作为老师,我认真培养坚强勇敢的孩子。现代社会,我们的孩子得到了更多的照顾,他们比从前更加珍贵。当他们在未来经历磨难和竞争,他们真正需要的是坚韧不拔的精神。

I was in the military for about five years, so what do I bring as a teacher, is having a very strict structure. Because our children are getting a lot more care, and they are much more precious nowadays than before. If they have experienced so much more hardship, competition in the future, what they really need is to persevere to be strong.

我是一个严格但有爱的家长。

Fayi: I'm strict but care for others.

 

在加拿大部队里的多年经验教会我:尽管是在艰苦的环境中与他人协作,我仍能在伟大的友谊中感受到爱。所以作为一名幼儿园老师,我不仅希望我的孩子们坚强勇敢,也希望他们能意识到团队合作和友谊,可以帮助我们渡过难关。所以我要做的就是向他们展示如何强大自我,并且在团结合作中感受团队的力量。孩子们从中学习、茁壮成长,未来无论遇到什么困难,他们都坚信自己能够克服。

所以,我的使命就是向他们展示一个坚强、坚定的角色形象,同时充满爱心、乐于助人。

Through my years of military experience in Canada, even though working with other people in really hard environments, I have the love in that friendship, in that bond I have with my friends. And what do I bring as a teacher, is having that strict structure, but also understanding that teamwork and friendship can really bring us through hardship. I think what I really bring to this table is to be able to show our children how they can become strong, not just by themselves, they can work together with other people. Children can learn from this, and they can grow strong in the future, no matter what hardship they go through, they know they can always overcome it.

For me, it’s my obligation to show them a strong, firm role figure, but at the same time, show that even though you're firm, you can still be loving, you can still be caring to other people.
