PYP Parent Session 1: IB's Approaches to Learning
Posted 10/19/2017 08:47AM
Many thanks to all the parents who attended our PYP session last Wednesday. Our main topic was IB's Approaches to Learning. Below are the key points addressed in the workshop:
- The dynamic changes in global economy, technology and environmental conditions influence education.
- IB's response to these changes is to ensure that our core curriculum includes developing transferable skills to help learners address the challenges in their school and home life.
- These skills are called Approaches to Learning (AtL):
- research skills
- thinking skills
- communication skills
- social skills
- self management skills
- As SIS works towards implementing the PYP, teachers will endeavor to integrate AtL's in the units.
Please take note that our second PYP sessions for parents is scheduled on November 15th, Wednesday, from 8:15-9:15 at the Mountainside multi-purpose room. We hope to see you there!
