    Service Snapshots - Sharing student service projects with Nate Samuelson

    Service Snapshots - Sharing student service projects with Nate Samuelson

    in this episode we talk to Nate Samuelson from Korea International School about his project called Service Snapshots and a course he created called ‘Design Your Impact’. Not only will your students be invited to participate, you are encouraged to replicate Nate’s ideas in your own school or region. Imagine a school district or an IB regional association creating their own version of the Service Snapshots concept. Either way, Nate’s collection of student service projects will serve as a repository of great ideas that might be the spark your students need to develop their own, local service initiative.

    Effective transitions when moving to a new school with Novadene Miller

    Effective transitions when moving to a new school with Novadene Miller

    In this episode we return to speak to Novadene Miller - this time we talk about making effective transitions when changing schools or changing roles within a school.
    But our conversation ranged widely from teacher skill sets in IB and international schools to how to better include new teachers into the culture of a school.
    Novadene shares many of her personal experiences as a Jamaican native navigating European international schools. You might be surprised how transferable those experiences are, no matter what your background. Novadene has such a great approach to new challenges and opportunities. She is an inspiration to anyone considering taking on a new challenge in a new place. And, as she says, 'Curate your strengths!'

    DP students from Exeter College share their CAS experiences

    In this episode we talk to six students and their CAS coordinator from Exeter College in Devon County, England. As the third in a series of interviews with IB students around the world: first in the US (here in Minnesota) and then in India and now the UK, listeners will hear the similarities and the differences in how IB schools introduce CAS and then support students in this core aspect of the IB Diploma Programme. This episode confirms the value of this unique piece of the puzzle in developing students prepared for the world and readying them to be productive, caring and contributing members of their individual communities.

    CAS Coordinator:
    Santina Micalizzi
    Students:
    Olly Evans, Caelin Berry, Oliver Cook, Amy Dunbavin, Oli Sweeney, Martha K

    This is part one of a series of episodes exploring the role of AI in the future of education.

    AI is here to stay and we need some tools and a plan to make the most of this transformative technology. Aruj Khaliq from Pakistan shares great ideas to start us on this journey! In this recording Aruj lays out the challenges but also the potential for AI to transform our schools. We discuss the need to rethink some assessments in light of AI’s presence, and Aruj gives us some guidance on how to start discussions with staff and students about AI.

    DP Students from Shiv Nadar School in Gurgaon, India share their CAS experiences

    DP Students from Shiv Nadar School in Gurgaon, India share their CAS experiences

    In this episode we return to talk to Vikas Pahwa from Shiv Nadar School in Gurgaon, India - but we are actually featuring some of his students who are sharing their CAS experiences. If this sounds familiar to regular listeners, that’s because we are going back to back with CAS related podcasts. Last episode it was students from my backyard in Minnesota. This time the students are from northern India. I’m sure you will be struck by the similarities in student responses and the ways in which CAS experiences have shaped them and had an influence in their future plans. Please listen to both episodes. They really speak to the core values and the mission of the IB in creating a well-rounded education leading to a better and more peaceful world.

    Featured students: Aishwarya, Gianna, Lakshya, Anvi 
    CAS Coordinator: Mrs Nandini Kar

    DP Students from Minnesota (USA) share their CAS experiences

    In this episode, we talk to four IB Diploma candidates about their CAS (Creativity, Activity & Service) experiences. Evan Whipple, Jynx Taylor, Lolu Ogunleye, and Audrey Mochama are all seniors at Champlin Park High School in Minnesota.

    CAS includes both sustained and one-time experiences. As you'll hear, these often lead to unexpected benefits for both the community and the students themselves. 
    We also speak with their DP Coordinator, Ashley Brown, about how CAS is a key aspect at the core of the Diploma Programme.

    Here are a couple links from Evan regarding Orange Shirt Day and Truth and Reconciliation Day
    This is part a series of episodes celebrating the successes of IB students and teachers across Minnesota.
