Can you recall the name of a teacher that made a big impression on you when you were in school? Most could.

Why does global citizenship need to be at the heart of teaching and learning?

Over the past decade or so, leading international schools have embraced the need for encouraging global citizenship and values. AISPP discusses what teaching global citizenship involves and why children need to be introduced to it from an early age.


Why is learning outside the classroom so important?

Often referred to as ‘real world learning’ schools are now realising that learning outside of the classroom is hugely important as it means children benefit from the best of both worlds by experiencing education in both formal and informal contexts.

Much has been written about IBL (inquiry-based learning), but what exactly is it and how does it help children to learn? AISPP believes that IBL, in many ways, alters the role of both teacher and student. 


How does a school’s learning environment influence achievement?

How well a child learns, particularly in their early years, is greatly affected by their learning environment. So what is it about the physical surroundings in school that can make children try harder and achieve more? AISPP believes that there is now a ‘third teacher’.

Why students need technology in the classroom?

Technology has changed the way we live, work and learn. It’s here to stay and most young people can’t get enough of it! Schools need to understand how and when they should use it if they are to create an effective working environment that supports achievement and success.

Why is learning a different language imperative in this global age?

We live in an age where migration, freedom of movement, and better career opportunities permit families to move and work wherever they choose. Speaking another language, therefore, is imperative if young people are to make the most of living and working in the 21st Century.
