Another Professional Development for teachers was conducted on 12th December for EISB staff by the Head of School and the Primary Coordinator. An introduction to the IB learner profile was given by the HOS explaining that the IB Learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success. It was mentioned that the profile aims to develop learners who are : Inquirers,Knowledgeable,Thinkers,Communicators,Principled,Open-minded,Caring,Risk-takers,Balanced and Reflective. As a School we need to refocus the school’s attention on ideals and modelling the values of the learner profile.
The second session was exposing teachers to some of the very useful apps – a valuable 21st Century skill of Technology Integration in classrooms. The Teachers learnt through hands on activities and fun games. It was a very positive learning experience with fun and learning blended in a collaborative learning atmosphere.
