4000+ schools across the world have chosen to become International Baccalaureate schools, with their unique academic rigour and their emphasis on each student’s personal development. Various research from across the globe shows that in many cases, students in IB schools perform better than students of other schools and they even get a better chance to get admissions in top world universities.
The IB Primary Years Programme has been developed over time, as per the regular educational research and feedbacks from principals, students, and teachers. The performance of IB schools is routinely evaluated to retain the title of IB School. Let’s see some of the reasons on how IB programme makes learning fun for elementary school students:
A good beginning
If you want to be a hundred, you must start young.
In the early years of schooling, children’s brains show an extraordinary level of neural plasticity, the ability for the brain to shape itself to stimulus. IB PYP provides education from 3 years -12 years, developing students into the learners they are capable of becoming. Various researches have shown that delivering high-level literacy, numeracy, communication, and thinking skills early in life have high chances of success later in life. Providing a safe and stimulating environment in which a child can develop a strong identity as a learner and a responsible citizen is providing them with the best start in life.
Road to success
Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.
We know our world is constantly evolving, and the skills of today may not be relevant tomorrow. What will the workplaces of students look like? How do we provide adequate training for them? Our economy is changing, and our leaders now need creative skills, critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, reflective skills, adaptive skills, entrepreneurial skills, literacy skills, and IT skills.
Parents and students now reject the old model in which the teacher knows all, and the student’s role is just to listen and mug the same passively. The traditional model will not provide the skills that students will need to be successful in today’s world.
Let’s see how IB’s programmes are different from other curriculums:
- Encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge the assumptions of others and their own.
- Teachers in IB schools in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, and more, make sure to use complex, real-life examples to teach knowledge and skills
- The focus is not only just remembering everything but understanding it.
- The students are prepared to take charge of their learning
- Students of all ages are encouraged to consider both local and global contexts
- Help to develop well-rounded students who can collaborate effectively and act ethically
The above mentioned helps to develop students who love learning and are motivated to succeed. To know about IB admission procedure, click here!
