What is an IB Education
We use the IB Curriculum Framework as we believe the curriculum is more in line with our core values and vision on education. Using a project based approach, we want to create students who understand we are all the same and want to help build a better, more peaceful world.
How the IB Framework can fit our pedagogical approach?
We work in the dynamic development of a multilingual and multicultural holistic approach, creating an environment which is relaxed but challenging, familiar but disciplined and most of all, we have created a school for the citizens of the future where fun and curiosity may lead to Learning Through Sharing and creativity in problem solving.
This aim is reflected in our mission statement.
What are the IB Approaches to Learning Skills
Approaches to learning skills (ATL) can be learned and taught, improved with practice and developed incrementally. They provide a solid foundation for learning independently and with others. ATL skills help students prepare for, and demonstrate learning through, meaningful assessment.
In their learning journey, students at International Sharing School will develop these skills:
All Learner Profile attributes that we develop with our students
The aim of our IB programmes is to develop internationally open-minded people who help to create a better and more peaceful world.
We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life.
We develop and use conceptual understanding, exploring knowledge across a range of disciplines. We engage with issues and ideas that have local and global significance.
We use critical and creative thinking skills to analyse and take responsible action on complex problems. We exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical decisions.
We express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively, listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups.
We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for people’s dignity and rights. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories and the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
We show empathy, compassion, and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.
We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.
We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives – intellectual, physical, and emotional – to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognise our interdependence with other people and the world in which we live.
We thoughtfully consider the world and our own ideas and experience. We work to understand our strengths and weaknesses to support our learning and personal development.
