EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY AND CURRICULUM AT SWOSTISHREE GURUKUL IB WORLD SCHOOL

Through the interplay of asking, doing and thinking, this constructivist approach leads towards open, democratic classrooms.

It prepares a community of learners to engage with global challenges through inquiry, action and reflection. We follow the IB framework and pedagogy which is blended with National Curriculum.

Our approaches to Learning (How students Learn):
In Swostishree Gurukul IB World School, students have opportunities to establish and pursue sustained inquiries. In this way they gain knowledge, conceptual understandings, skills and dispositions to contribute to, and make a difference in their own lives, their communities and the wider world. Approaches to learning (ATL) are an integral part of an IB education, offering up an array of lenses for students to promulgate their inquiries. The ATL are crucial for exploring knowledge within the transdisciplinary themes or global context: they help students think, research, communicate, socialize and manage themselves effectively.All teachers foster and support the development of the ATL by providing opportunities embedded in authentic learning experiences.
