Our method is based on the IBO’s Primary Years Programme, which stipulates a project-based, interdisciplinary and inquiry-based approach to teaching and actively integrates students into the learning process. Official studies show that children absorb knowledge more readily when they have something to do with their hands, are active and are integrated into the learning process.
The practical project work puts the knowledge and learning process into a context that gives the topic relevance for the students’ lives. Knowledge accumulated in this way can be transferred easily to new situations or new contexts because it has been properly understood.
This active research is of course supervised by trained educators in order to ensure that the theory behind the practical experience is communicated in an age and situation-appropriate way. If this teaching method is applied to a high level of quality, it is one of the most effective ways for children of all ages to learn.
The prerequisites for high quality include ongoing teacher training, an open culture of cooperation between teachers of all subjects, planning relevant trips and partnerships for practical application, equipping classrooms with resources for the relevant projects, and integrating offline and online media to supplement project work.
