SIS Hosts the ASIA Curriculum Forum
Posted 05/08/2018 11:32AM

During the past weekend SIS hosted the annual forum for Curriculum leaders to come together and discuss the most current trends in education, share resources and plan professional learning collaborations between schools. Schools involved in the Asia region included Hong Kong International School (HKIS), Shanghai American School (SAS), International School of Beijing (ISB), American School of Japan (ASIJ) and International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL). Schools that couldn't make it this time but are a part of this group, are Taipei American School (TAS), Singapore American School (SAS), International School of Manila (ISM) and Jakarta International School (JIS).

During the two day forum, schools discussed many similar topics, in particular math, social studies and how to use data and assessment effectively. What is interesting to note is that whilst SIS is one of the smaller sized schools amongst these tier 1 international schools, we are leaders in many curriculum areas. It is also important to note that all the schools involved have a similar curriculum foci and alongside that very similar issues surrounding curriculum and learning at school.

It is vital to have common and collaborative connections amongst the schools in the surrounding Asia area and by meeting annually it not only deepens these connections but allows for a cross pollination of resources and ideas throughout the year. There are multiple times when SIS has reached out to many of these schools for feedback and vice versa, they also do the same to SIS.

Those that participated in this 2 day forum were very impressed with SIS, the vision, and how we articulate and implement our curriculum. The friendly, family feel of the campuses and the happiness of our students was often commented on during their tour of both Jingshan and Bayside.
