Shouldn't We All be International-Minded?

Public schools have an obligation to educate all students to be “international-minded” citizens. In the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization, “international-minded” students are defined as demonstrating all of the “Learner Profile” attributes. These include being open-minded, caring, reflective, principled, balanced, knowledgeable, inquirers, thinkers, communicators and risk-takers. Imagine if all students left elementary schools with those attributes. Students who demonstrate these…

International Mindedness

In the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization, “international-minded” students are defined as demonstrating all of the following attributes: open-minded, risk-taker, reflective, principled, balanced, inquirer, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators and caring. There are many ways to give our students enough time to practice these attributes. I have incorporated them into the library time and collaborating with teachers to allow students to show these attributes to others around the…

Looking for Collaborators - Grades 2-5

Hi All - I am still trying to get a few teachers collaborating before the end of the year. If you are interested in helping develop a quick project with a 2nd-5th grade teacher, please let me know. We are open for ideas, but also pressed for time.  Thanks!

Mod 5 Essential Questions

 Reviewing Ewan McIntosh’s Seven Spaces of Learning, what types of spaces are underrepresented in the schools you work with? McIntosh's Seven Spaces of Learning are Secret, Group, Publishing, Performing, Participation, Data, and Watching.  The school I work at does not have a Secret Space because most teachers do not allow the use of technology in their classes.  Secret Spaces includes but is not limited to texting, chatting and emailing.  Group Spaces such as Facebook are used by…

Hi. Currently I'm teaching Grade 5 in the PYP.  In Taiwan I will be doing grade 7 and 8 Individuals and Societies in the MYP.  My school now is a bit behind the times from a technology standpoint, but where I'm going in Taiwan (KAS) reportedly has a very strong ICT department and infrastructure.  It will be a  nice change of pace.  I'm very excited and I would love to connect our students!  Lets make that happen.  I have a rough idea of the units that i will be teaching: Greece and Rome, Europe in the Middle ages, Indian, Chinese, Japanese and Taiwanese history as well as a unit on African civilisations. These are what come to mind immediately, I'm sure the New World will be in there too.

Hi Toni We have lots of people at my school that have come from Shanghai as well, it seems to be a popular place to teach in the international circuit. i will be moving to Taiwan next year so i am soaking up as much of Chiang Mai as I can while I can. This is a great place.

Hi Toni!  Nice to hear from you. What grade level do you teach?  My kids would LOVE to see some Colorado snow! I'd like to connect with a class for a joint project. After the Florida testing season, (end of March) I think it would be amazing to collaborate with a class from another part of the U.S. Looking forward to making the connections!

Thanks for the welcome! :-)

I teach in secondary schools, both in ordinary courses (students of adolescents 15 to 18 years) in both classes with adults. I also teach at the university for training teachers.
And you?
