Make Learning Come Alive

Make Learning Come Alive

One sized curriculum, one subject area focus, standardized assessments, command and control, no choice are principals of the past. Anyhow these are still issues students and teachers struggle with at schools today. Coming from a time of the industrial revolution these principals are largely outdated. We need to make a paradigm shift in education and prepare children to live a happy and fulfilled life, in which they live up to their potential and get prepared for challenges of the 21st century. Project Based Learning (PBL) prepares students for academic, personal, and career success. It provides relevant learning experiences and readies young people to rise to the challenges of their lives and the world they will inherit. Through PBL students can make meaning in their lives and the lives of others by generating new ideas, solutions and products. The talk will show how Kiel International School aspires a modern learning experience that makes everyone involved come alive and passionate about learning.
Carol started the founding initiative for Kiel International School. She is a personal and organizational development coach and works as a project coordinator for The Bay Areas Network.

Future Education

Kiel International School | founding initiative

Kiel International School (KIS) is a school start-up in founding. KIS will offer a programme of high-quality international education. By creating a trusting and safe learning atmosphere KIS wants to encourage students 3 to 19 years of age to become active, optimistic, compassionate, and lifelong learners. Individualised and real world projekt-based learning is at the heart of KIS. Because the world runs on projects, we see managing and leading projects as essential life skills, learning skills and career skills. Tech- and media-integrated learning is a given at KIS. We promote a culture of innovation, open-mindedness, respect, enthusiastic learning, and cooperation. Our students learn and grow together through intercultural understanding and by discovering and working with their talents and passions.
