    Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School Embraces Intelligent Campus with Huawei

The digital transformation of the education sector is in full swing, bringing major upgrades to classroom teaching.

Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School, a pioneer in digitalized education, has partnered with Huawei to establish an intelligent campus that embodies intelligence, perception, and connectivity. The school has seamlessly integrated Huawei's ICT infrastructure into its teaching practices, resulting in the creation of smart classrooms with HUAWEI IdeaHubs as the core. Through this, the school implements a first-class campus network that seamlessly integrates teaching, office, campus security, and O&M in one place. The school promotes a blend of online and offline interactive teaching, enhances campus security based on intelligent video awareness, and allows students to learn from anywhere. Combined, these help create an intelligent campus that features intelligence, perception, connectivity, and environmental sustainability.

Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School acts as a benchmark for digital transformation in the education field both locally and globally. Currently, the global intelligent campus showcase of the school has been officially put into use, attracting education institutions from around the world to familiarize themselves with state-of-the-art digital education technologies. They can make appointments with Huawei and visit the school to experience first-hand intelligent campus in action, as well as exchange trends and insights into digital transformation in the field.

One Intelligent Whiteboard Results in Greater Class Immersion

Gone are the days of teachers and students being plagued by floating chalk dust in the smart classrooms of Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School. Instead, traditional blackboards have been replaced by the IdeaHub Board and IoT whiteboards, providing an interactive and student-centered learning environment enriched with a range of teaching applications. This transformation has not only enhanced teaching efficiency and course preparation but also greatly improved the overall teaching experience. Additionally, the school boasts a comprehensive Wi-Fi 6 wireless network, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity during classes.

HUAWEI IdeaHub Board boasts a variety of advanced features, including optical anti-blue light, seamless projection, and ultra-low writing latency. It combines teaching hardware and software ecosystems to enhance interaction between teachers and students, creating a more engaging classroom environment. Smart classrooms are fitted with devices that record class content that is saved and made accessible for students to review after class. And for great classroom comfort, IoT and sensor devices are also installed in the classrooms, allowing teachers to effortlessly adjust the air conditioning and lights as needed.

HUAWEI IdeaHub Board is also perfect for music and art lessons. Its 4K screen reproduces authentic colors, and the hi-fi stereo sound field creates an immersive learning space, injecting energy into these specialized subjects.

Learning across time and space is no longer a challenge thanks to cloud-based classrooms, which enable remote real-time participation and interaction. Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School is one of the first schools that introduce cloud-based classrooms equipped with HUAWEI IdeaHub Board and live broadcast system in Shenzhen. With IdeaHub Board, teachers can live broadcast classes, share teaching courseware and handwritten notes, and interact with remote students in real time. This implementation provides an immersive cloud-based teaching experience and enhances the overall teaching experience. Additionally, cloud-based classrooms allow for more students to access high-quality teacher resources, thereby maximizing education resources.

These smart classrooms not only implement a student-centric teaching mode across various scenarios, but also make learning more digital, diversified, and personalized, thereby enhancing the teaching experience and improving class scores.

One Network Supports Ubiquitous Wireless Connections

A stable, high-speed network is critical for an intelligent campus. Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School uses Huawei's simplified campus network solution to build a comprehensive network that can carry wired, wireless, and IoT services. This solution facilitates real-time data sharing and exchange, fostering a digital campus environment where everyone can learn anytime, anywhere.

This integrated network supports various services such as teaching, office, IoT, and security, forming the network foundation for an intelligent campus. Based on Huawei's simplified campus network solution, the school has implemented high-quality 10GE network covering the whole campus. This allows for seamless connection to terminals such as HUAWEI IdeaHub Board, speakers, and electronic classroom nameplates, supporting the smooth operation of cloud-based and interactive classrooms.

Classrooms are now even safer as fewer cables are needed. Previously, eight network cables were required in each classroom, but now only one four-core terminal flexible optical fiber is needed, halving the cost of cables. Due to the longer transmission distance of optical fibers, only small passive optical splitters need to be installed in weak-current rooms. This eliminates the need for auxiliary power supply or air conditioning, and also reduces fire risks. As a result, network power consumption has been reduced by more than 20%, highlighting the school's ambition of becoming more environmentally friendly.

All campus networks and servers on the campus are managed by the intelligent modular equipment room. The school utilizes Huawei's smart modular equipment room solution to integrate various complex systems, including cabinet power supply and distribution, as well as temperature control. This solution is very adaptable to different environments, while also having lower requirements for floor height and floor bearing capacity. Additionally, it reduces footprint by 40% and electricity fees, resulting in a simplified, green, intelligent, and secure data center for the school. With Huawei's intelligent O&M network management platform, you can monitor the health status of the whole campus network in real-time and quickly identify and resolve any faults. This significantly reduces the workload of network O&M personnel and ensures a continuous and stable experience for the campus network.

Intelligent Campus is Reshaping Schools

In the future, digital classrooms are crucial to developing high-quality education. "We have partnered with Huawei to drive technological innovation in our intelligent campus," said Zhang Kejiang, President of Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School. "We are committed to creating an information-based environment that actively explores digital transformation for education and promotes its overall development. Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School is dedicated to shaping the future of education.

The successful implementation of intelligent campus in the school, along with the use of a global showcase, not only drives the intelligent and digital development of Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School, but also enhances teaching, research, and management. It serves as a model for the construction of intelligent campuses worldwide, providing advanced concepts for the informatization of the global education industry.
