IB Approaches to Learning

At the core of the IB program is the emphasis on helping students to become lifelong learners. Our Grade 7 students have been discussing neuroplasticity, the fact that the brain is able to change its structure when learning new skills and information. This week, they read and discussed a French comic book about neuroplasticity and learning strategies. These Approaches to Learning, deliberate strategies, skills, and attitudes that are incorporated into IB methods, will help our students to identify their own ways of learning and to think about their importance.
