Personalised Learning at its Best

Thursday, 2 February, 2017

On the evening of the 28th of February and during the school day on the 1st March, we would like to invite you to interview our grade 10 students about a truly personal and powerful learning experience - their Personal Projects.

Students choose something they are passionate about or interested in and have six months to complete the project. This may seem like a long time, but for the students involved in the Personal Project, time management is crucial to meet the requirements.

As it is the culminating project for the MYP years, the Personal Project challenges our students as learners. Please see below a few questions to give you an idea about the variety of projects our 10th graders have chosen this year:

How can I inspire and motivate girls to code?

How can I improve language learning for primary students by writing fairy tales in English, French, German and Spanish?

How can I create a design for a TV studio for a weekly TV show for school bands in Berlin?

How can I show my learning about how football has become a faster game in recent years?

How can I raise awareness of the health & environmental impact of the production & consumption of animal products?

The Personal Project is complex on many levels, as students need to define a clear goal and follow very specific criteria that make it successful. Students have to analyze and document how their own thinking skills have developed during the six months, and also need to use their self-management and communication skills successfully. To guide the students through this process, each student works with a mentor.

If you would like to find out more about the Personal Projects, and particularly if your daughter or son is in grade 9 or 10 this year, please join us to celebrate the students’ achievements, and to see the outcomes of their creative ideas.

Tuesday, 28th February, 19:00 - Official Opening of the Exhibition with parents

Wednesday, 1st March, 8:10-14:15 - Exhibition is open to the school community

I look forward to welcoming you to the exhibition!
