數字人生

「憑號碼來認識 你的IQ 你的身家 你的體魄 你的一切 人與數字有許多怪事 看看計數機裡幽禁幾多人質」

 

「又唔合格?都叫咗你唔好打咁多機!」嘩,好可怕,即使你是80後90後00後,都應該有聽過這句有如緊箍咒的說話,好痛呀師父!

 

由細到大,我們都被數字圍繞著,細個默書考試要高分,出來工作人工要高,搞公司創業也要營利高。數字,尤其在香港,擔當著一個非常重要的指標,是我們太懶惰而用來量度所有事物的單一指標。

 

點解?因為數字夠簡單。成績好等於好學生,人工高等於叻仔,這種排除所有variables而得出的直線結論實在太好用,快嘛,又唔使用腦。

 

夠快夠簡單,弊病就是因為太快,唔夠準。相信大家都會聽過一些說話,從公開試成績不好的學生說出:「我攞唔到5**唔係因為我唔叻,係因為我唔識考試姐!」火遮眼的父母親本來已經對藉口聽不入耳,這種「賴皮」的說話換來的只會是鬧多幾錢重。

 

不過我又信喎。公司有一位同事,在香港讀書,會考18分,A-Level成績差,沒有A沒有B,沒有大學收要升asso,最後一鋪鯉魚翻身,升到大學之餘,GPA還過3爆4,拿著Dean’s List名銜畢業。

 

當然啦,他不是讀Oxbridge不是哈佛史丹福,你總有原因覺得他不濟,但至少証實了,在兩種不同數字的平台上比較,這個人有兩種截然不同的表現。公開試成績差可以有很多原因,不能直接就說學生唔叻;反過來說,一個人是立體的,他不懂考試,但在大學的project-based assignments上能表現傑出的presentation skills、interpersonal skills和leadership的才能:全都是公開試不會考的。

 

重點就在於「立體」二字。人是立體的,也不是每方面都能量化,用數字去量度。對知識的了解和技術層面上的高低是hard skills,能用數字量度;但人際關係、公關技考、溝通能力之類的soft skills,則不是由冷冰冰的數字就可以解讀的。

 

如果你是父母,就更加要向子女灌輸立體的人生觀,主張發掘自我長處和興趣。「求學不是求分數」,那要求甚麼呢?從來沒有人說過。只知道要拿開孫悟空的緊箍咒而沒有給他筋斗雲,齊天大聖仍然是飛不起的。

 

「煩惱一生 全為數字 圓滿的掌握問誰可以?」

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
