Educational and Motivational Interactive Sessions@Mr. Jyoti Das, Sacramento CA
In SBDIS we provide a platform to our students with some Educational and Motivational Interactive sessions with Mr. Jyoti Das, an American based motivationalspeaker. Given the Digitalization growing fast in the world around. Its our first and most important duty to guide our kids with motivation towards achieving the success not in a materialistic way but Spiritual and Educational way. Also with the advanced growth and diversity in cultures around the world, the guidance in terms of values and culture binding is also needed. Hence, in SBDIS we teach our students to be bonded into the roots of our Indian culture and get the best out of it.
Core Skills Training @British Council
Our ISA Coordinator and a set of teachers from SBDIS International School attend a 3 day British Council Core Skills Training session from Feb 5 – 7, 2018. Delegates from eight Schools participated in the Program. Teachers from all subjects including Math, English, SST and the Sciences capitalized on this intense course taking this new knowledge back to their classrooms in their separate schools.
The key areas of British Council is to support the Core Skills advancement in the community . The British Council implemented this course in 2015. It is a three years programme that helps teachers identify and implement six core skills including critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and imagination, digital literacy, citizenship, student’s leadership and personal development and collaboration and communication into their teaching routines.
We completed the Introduction to Core Skills Course and will have completed the advanced training module on critical thinking and problem solving (CTPS) once they present their completed lesson plans in April along with their reflections write up.
SBDIS ISA Coordinator along with other Teachers were separated into five teams that had to present on the spot lessons plans that had to show case all the parameters of CTPS. We received constructive feedback on how effective their lesson planning was in sparking deep thinking in students. Many CTPS activities were demonstrated as group activities. We walkedout from this training with a basic theoretical understanding critical thinking and problem solving and new ways to developed leadership, project management, and self evaluation techniques to embed critical thinking and problem solving into their daily practice. Core Skills Training also challenged us to identify opportunities within their schools to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills enhancing child centric learning.
