    DP students who are changing the world by acting locally

    DP students who are changing the world by acting locally

    In this episode we talk to 5 students from Ebenezer International School in Bangalore, India and their Environmental Systems and Societies (ESS) teacher Bhavya Prabu. These students have created a CAS Project based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (known as the UN SDG’s). They mentor younger students to learn about particular SDG’s and then help them develop TED Talk format speeches for their peers. To make it even more challenging they have done this while never setting foot in the school or meeting their mentee students face to face.
    This project illustrates the extraordinary young people who take on the Diploma Programme. Each of these students deserves a huge salute for their service to others and their commitment to making the world a better place. 

    As a privacy precaution, the students’ school has asked that listeners fill out a form if you would like to see their web page for this project.

    The IB Approach to Teaching Science with Bhavya Prabu

    The IB Approach to Teaching Science with Bhavya Prabu

    In this episode we talk to Bhavya Prabu about the IB approach to teaching and learning science from MYP to DP.  Bhavya has experience teaching in both the Diploma Programme and the Middle Years Programme so she has an excellent perspective for this discussion.
    We talk about the structure and requirements of a couple of DP science courses, specifically Biology and ESS. But we also get into the philosophy of the IB approach and how the skill building seen in the MYP leads to success later on in the DP.

    Bhavya has generously shared a number of teacher resources and examples which you can find in our podcast notes,below.
