SAIBSA Job Alike Session April 2015: Role of ICT in PYP

This coming April 11th, I will facilitate a discussion about the ‘Role of ICT in PYP’ in SAIBSA-Job Alike Session ( to be held in Ascend International School, Mumbai, India (  I don’t simply want to preach or discuss about the importance of ICT in learning.  Rather, I’m hoping to have a LOT OF GROUP SHARING and open discussions where participants can reflect about their current ICT practices, be critical about them, explore other ICT practices and hopefully, come up with personal and professional action plans.

“Educators from around the world are invited to participate in the new #pypchat. Inspired by the success of other Twitter chats such as #elemchat, #pypchat was created to provide PYP teachers with an opportunity to come together and share thoughts, experiences and strategies ~ to learn from and with each other.”

As a PYP teacher, this site has been helping me A LOT. It is such a warm community of teachers and school staff, all trying to help everyone with their teaching and learning. I feel valued in this community even if I just joined recently. The members are very inspiring, too!

Encouraging ALL teachers and school staff:
