    Roundtable Forum


    Mr. Clayton Mullins was also invited to participate in a roundtable discussion on the theme of "In the Age of Data Intelligence, How Can Prestigious Schools Stay Ahead". In the statement, he stated:


    In such a rapidly changing and ever-changing era of digital and artificial intelligence, continuous technological innovation has changed our lives, as educators, we are also faced with many challenges in teaching models, learning support and other aspects.


    As a leading international education group founded in 1932 and with more than 90 years of experience in educating talents, YCYW Education Network has always been known for the advanced educational philosophy and curriculum, and we have always prided ourselves on equiping students to reach their full potential and succeed in a rapidly changing world through experiential teaching that goes beyond the traditional classroom.


    Our curriculum fully recognizes the rapid development in the field of science and technology and its profound impact on the world around it. That's why we integrate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education into an interdisciplinary curriculum that provides students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in these fields.


    At the same time, we emphasize the importance of digital literacy through a range of technology courses and programs to prepare students for the digital age. For example, our courses are designed to be hands-on and experiential, engaging students in real-world problems and developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills.


    Of course, STEM education is not only about technical skills, but also about creativity and innovation. That's why we integrate design thinking and entrepreneurship into STEM courses, encouraging students to think outside the box and develop innovative solutions to real-world problems.


    In addition, we also focus on strengthening digital education, using advanced technologies and tools to provide high-quality digital education. This includes online learning platforms, etc., to achieve extensive sharing and expansion of educational resources.



    Strive Forward 


    Winning several major honors is a high recognition and affirmation of the strength and achievements of our school, which is inseparable from the hard work of everyone in the YWIES Shanghai Lingang Bilingual Learning Community.


    YWIES Shanghai Lingang will continue to uphold the mission of "aligning with Science and Technology/Culture and Arts/Love and Charity", constantly improve the quality of education and teaching, and provide students with high-quality international education.


    We would like to express my sincere gratitude to Forbes China and other colleagues in the education sector for their support and recognition, as well as to the parents, alumni and partners who have always supported and cared for YWIES Shanghai Lingang Bilingual Learning Community. 


    In the future, we will continue to work hard in equipping our graduates with a deep respect for and understanding of world cultures, mastery of Chinese and English, plus proficiency in other modern languages, as well as a strong commitment to meeting challenges of their generation.
