Hello everyone! Happy new school year (and happy mid-year to southern hemisphere educators).
I haven't blogged for a while, as I have been busy with my new job, my toddler and living in a new place. I've had a lot of requests to access various Google Drive folders, as I think the security settings on the old links changed, so I thought I would put them in a new post.
I always wanted to flag up Enhancing the MYP! As many of you know, all subject reviews are currently on pause, while we look at making improvements to the whole programme. The aims are to make it better for students, easier for teachers and more flexible for schools. While I love the MYP, I know it has a lot of rules, and can be quite a rigid system. The enhancments are aiming to put more power in the educators and schools hands. Also we are aiming to make it better for schools that don't have the full five year programme and schools that a lot of local/national requirements. While a lot of research has been done already to identify some of the problem areas, everything is still on the table! We are about to launch a series of basecamps (online forums), where educators can respond to some guiding questions an share their ideas. This is open to everyone, including teachers who are new to the MYP. If you want to get involved, please fill in this form. Please send to your colleagues/friends too! The more the merrier!

Before joining the IB full-time, I was doing some work for Toddle. You can find all their MYP resources here. They have loads of great resources, from printables to explainer videos!
Hope everyone is doing well! I am about to take my first vacation, not during school holidays! Italy here I come!
