International Baccalaureate, IB, is an international education in schools throughout the world.
Students that study in our IB-classes follow in parallel, both the Swedish curriculum LGR11 and IB’s International curriculum. These two curricular are similar to each other with similar goals. Simply put, LGR 11 provides the subject content, whilst the IBO steers and assures the IB pedagogical delivery of that content. The IBO outlines a pedagogical strategy that is thus a framework of education that the Swedish national curriculum fits in.
IB education lends itself to teaching that is cross curricular in nature. MYP for example, has 8 subject areas Language acquisition, Language and Literature, Mathematics, Science, Individuals and Societies, Design, Art, Physical and Health Education.
The IB strives to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people that help to create a better world through understanding and respect for different cultures. The IB Programme aims to empower its students across the whole world to become, active, engaged and naturally curious in their learning. The IB’s pedagogical strategy also aims to empower its pupils to think and act both locally and globally, whilst giving the pupils an insight and an understanding that other people with their differences can also be right.
Pupils should be conscious of their own knowledge development and develop different ways to manage for example: problem solving. The ability to communicate therefore is extremely important. The IB programme also lays all the more significant focus on developing the whole person, where all subjects and a structure of school life beyond the lesson work together strive to generate pupils’ creativity and personal development.
