 Play Based Learning PK-12

Facilitators: Cheryl, Lydia, Clayton

Location: Level 5

'As in the focus of a magnifying glass, play contains all developmental tendencies in a condensed form and is itself a major source of development.’ Lev Vygotsky

This CAPpl will focus on the merits and practice of play-based learning across grade levels. This will be a unique opportunity for teachers of all age groups to familiarize themselves with play-based learning techniques and swap ideas about how these techniques can be used in their classes. Often play-based learning is considered appropriate only for very young children, but the truth is that even adult students can benefit from educational techniques which incorporate kinetic, entertaining, purposeful activities.

 TOK it's not just an IB thing!

Facilitators: Faye & Mark RJ

As educators, we strive to teach critical thinking skills that will transfer from one subject to the next, one grade level to the next, Theory of Knowledge (TOK) is a course in the IB program that delves deeply into real life situations from which deep inquiry arises. Our students need to be able to make those connections throughout their academic career, beginning in the elementary grades. By attending this workshop, you will be able to learn how you can incorporate TOK concepts into your units naturally and seamlessly. You will discover what you currently do that supports the TOK content and skills. You will be able to see that TOK is not just an IB thing, it’s in everything!
