2019微軟邁客盃──運算思維與創意設計大賽 打造新文化科技力

匯集台灣AI科技人才培育之力 激發科技文化保存與永續發展之動力潛能

201912290005 (5).jpg響應全球AI教育轉型之浪潮,呼應108課綱將資訊科技納入教學領域,國立故宮博物院、臺北市政府教育局與台灣微軟三方攜手舉辦之「2019邁客盃-運算思維與創意設計大賽」12月27日至28日於臺北市立陽明高級中學盛大展開!透過 Minecraft 教育版、MakeCode程式設計、micro:bit智慧小車競賽、創意設計大賽共4個項目,融合台灣在地文化資產和保存意識,提升學生STEAM(科學、科技、工程、藝術、數學)知識建構與跨域解決問題的能力,打造出具溫度及社會關懷之創意設計概念,翻轉多數學生對程式設計高難度的刻板印象。今年第二屆邁客盃更擴大參賽資格,邀請全台國小至大專院校學生組隊報名,共計393隊超過1000位學生踴躍參加。透過 Minecraft 教育版中的MakeCode程式學習平台及 micor:bit控制板拉進科技與文化的距離,期待藉由此次跨領域的交流,可進一步將數位科技風氣推廣至校園生活中,活化教學應用資源,培養學生具備21世紀邏輯運算思維、創意和專注力,從小紮根程式設計學習,提升台灣接軌國際之人才競爭力。

讓文化保存AI化!呼應AI for Good之教育目標 翻出教育轉型新高度

201912290005 (6).jpg2019年微軟電腦科學教育月以AI for Good為主題,從地球環境挑戰( AI for Earth )、無障礙賦能( AI for Accessibility)、文化遺產保護( AI for Cultural Heritage )及人道行動( AI for Humanitarian Action )四大面向,輔以微軟全球科技能量協助台灣教育發展與師資培育,企盼可弭平城鄉教育資源與環境的落差。故宮館藏文物涵蓋自新石器時代至今長達約8,000年之文化資產,共計超過60萬件收藏品,每年可接待超過614萬人次參訪旅客,更曾位列全球參觀人數第六多的藝術博物館,於世界文明歷史保存具獨特與重要性。今年第二屆微軟邁客盃特與國立故宮博物院合作,將資訊教育科技加入在地人文文化之跨領域應用,在創意設計大賽環節中透過文物保存、古物維護等文物保存議題設定,協助參賽學生在競賽過程中建構人文與科技的跨領域邏輯思維能力,激發學生獨立思考能力並自主找尋議題解決方案之構想。國立故宮博物院教育展資處徐孝德處長表示:「故宮近年來陸續增建如數位導覽大廳、多媒體放映室、多媒體兒童學習的兒童學藝中心等,無不充分結合數位科技應用於博物館文物展覽、教育推廣與各項軟硬體設備。透過科技將院藏文物的千年華夏文化與藝術跨越時空之藩籬,營造一個數位博物館,為世界文化搭起一座無形的橋樑,這樣的結合更有助於推動在地文化之保存與發展。自8月與台灣微軟共同辦理『故宮×微軟 創客程式夏令營』更號召5年級至12年級之國中小學生超過500人報名,共計80人熱烈參與,今故宮擔任2019年邁客盃共同主辦單位之一,也期待可在創意設計大賽中,見證各位台灣好手如何透過 Minecraft 教育版構建出心中印象最深刻或是最喜歡的文化故事,並將台灣文化科技力發揚國際,創造文化保存與永續發展的下一個里程碑!」


齊力培育台灣教育之AI思維 以AI科技能量共同推動世界向前邁步

【新聞照片7】.jpeg微軟推動之數位轉型擴及科技、醫療、教育、文化、社會倫理議題等等,以期透過新科技之能量,幫助全球的每一個人和每一個組織實現更多。近年來,微軟對AI的關注已從「AI 可以做什麼」轉移到「AI 應該做什麼」上,並致力於推廣電腦科學教育與資訊科技人才之培育。今年電腦科學教育月以AI for Good為計畫主軸,便是期待可藉由發揮AI技術的正向影響力共創美好社會,除縱向程式教育向下紮根外,更橫越偏鄉教育與全台師資培育,推助台灣教育之轉型引擎動力。台灣微軟公共業務事業群總經理潘先國指出:「邁客盃透過 Minecraft 教育版遊戲式的程式設計概念模組,學生可以在3D世界內創建自己的世界,各領域教師皆可透過 Minecraft 教育版結合其教學課程,打造沉浸式學習,並結合電腦科學教育模式,讓學生在遊戲中以簡單易懂的拖拉積木形式,建立撰寫程式概念、開啟電腦科學學習歷程,透過與國立故宮博物院及臺北市政府教育局合作舉辦競賽活動,運用資訊科技及AI技術,保存當地文化與解決社會議題,更可培養台灣學生展現獨具特色之文化科技力,進而作為2020年第一屆全球最具規模及影響力的國際學生科技競賽──微軟潛能創意青少年盃 (Imagine Cup Junior) 之前哨準備戰。微軟全球教育計畫不僅是提供學校先進科技裝置,更從師資培育做起,與校方共同合作研擬出最合適之教育計畫,提供具全方位規劃之教育解決方案,讓學生可提早接觸國際數位發展趨勢,培養國際競爭力。」

當故宮文物與AI數位科技碰撞 重返萬千年歷史文化之境

2019微軟邁客盃為台灣教育團隊打造一個全國性電腦科學教育階段性成果平台,此次創意設計大賽中更將故宮經典館藏重現於世,吸引眾人駐足欣賞!桃園市楊心國民小學學生現場使用 Minecraft 教育版將清明上河圖和諸多故宮名畫,如:韓幹《牧馬圖》、馬麟《秉燭夜遊》、唐人宮月圖等透過積木堆疊和程式設計重建、繪製,將北宋首都開封汴河兩岸清明時節的繁榮景象,及各知名繪畫中場景生動呈現;新竹縣新湖國民小學更將遠近馳名的故宮三寶:翠玉白菜、肉型石、毛公鼎完美結合,現場邀請貴賓一起烹煮3D版酸菜白肉鍋;台北市日新國小透過故宮吉祥畫作及程式演算設計層層文化密碼,讓參與遊戲者透過一次次拆解問題找尋解題模式規律,並順利逃脫虛擬故宮名畫密室;新竹市磐石中學高中部利用程式碼來介紹故事劇情,並在Minecraft 教育版積木方塊中加入指令設定,穿越時空將郎世寧《百駿圖》的作畫技巧與光影變化,姿態各異的駿馬百匹,或臥或立,嬉戲、覓食、遊憩在草原、林木之間細膩的呈現。大賽中不僅展現出學生豐富活潑之創意與創新邏輯思維能力,更是凝聚了台灣電腦資訊教育實力,將數十萬件故宮館藏,其隱含的關鍵文化與背景,透過好玩的遊戲方式連結,讓國際教育舞台看見台灣無限文化科技能量!

6】微軟潛能創意盃 (Imagine Cup) 素有「軟體界的奧林匹克」之稱,邀集來自世界各地的學生,透過細膩之觀察能力,發現潛在之社會問題與困境,透過創意提出解構問題之解決方案,是實踐科技力量的終極殿堂。看見學生改革之動力與潛能,2020年將首度舉辦微軟潛能創意青少年盃 (Imagine Cup Junior),並下修報名之學生年齡,邀請全球13歲至18歲之學生,提供AI學習技術以及解決社會,文化和環境問題的想法落實,與世界各地菁英一同競飆創意、把台灣傲人的科技實力讓全世界看見,用科技的力量照亮未來世界!
