MYP – APPROACHES TO LEARNING
Through approaches to learning (ATL) skills in the IB MYP, students develop skills that have relevance across the curriculum that help them “learn how to learn”. ATL skills can be taught and improved with practice. Students develop their understanding of how they learn best; thus developing a love for learning. The 5 sets of skills are:
The 5 categories of ATL skills mentioned above are the same across all MYP subjects; however, each subject has a set of specific skills to contribute to the holistic process of learning. Moreover, ATL skills provide a solid foundation for learning independently and with others. ATL skills provide a common language that students and teachers can use to articulate and reflect on the process of learning.
Each ATL skill category is elaborated below:
|Social Skills||Communication Skills||Self-management Skills||Research Skills|
The Personal Project
This is an independent piece of work intended as the culmination of the student’s studies in grade 10 or MYP Year 5. Students work with their supervisors to complete an individual and original piece of research. Students showcase their development of ATL skills, understanding of Global contexts and development of Learner Profile attributes through the Personal Project.
MYP e-assessments for students of grade 10 or MYP Year 5:
As part of the educational opportunities here at Ecole Mondiale we are proud to offer the Grade 10 students the opportunity of sitting the optional IB MYP e-assessments. The IB MYP eAssessment is an exciting development that offers the students a unique assessment of their learning in a truly 21st century approach. E-Assessments are in two forms, some subjects have an on-screen exam and others have a submission of student-work through an ePortfolio. In May 2016 École (along with other leading schools around the world) successfully conducted the IB MYP e-assessments. The e-assessments are clearly the way that assessments will be conducted in the 21st century and we are proud to be part of this exciting IB initiative.
