The explosion in early August that rocked the Lebanese capital Beirut left over 200 residents dead, 6,000 injured, and 350,000 homeless. This tragedy compounded existing social, political, economic, and health crises. Brummana High School Students stepped up... more

The Organisation to Decolonise International Schools (ODIS) was launched in the summer of 2020 to address the ways in which global education systems were founded on colonial values, Western dominance and, inevitably, White Supremacy and racism-specifically anti-Blackness... more

What's inspiring me these days is that, regardless of the obstacles in place, and despite all of the restrictions and protocols and road blocks in the way, great teachers step up and accept the challenge. Great teachers find a way...always. They do it because they love teaching, and they love kids...and the truth of the matter is that it doesn't matter what you throw in front of a great teacher, or what obstacles you put in place, because in the end, you can't put a mask on love. ... more

Reinforcement of the gender binary is present across the spectrum of school life, often hiding both in plain sight and in places we don't always think to look. As educators, it is important that we learn to see how this binary can affect our students... more

Here in Thailand we consider ourselves lucky to have a chance to be face to face, or "f2f." Our first days are focused on building routines and putting students at ease, so the classroom is a place each child feels comfortable. Yet another measure of compliance was just handed down: the Ministry of Education now requires all schools to ensure students maintain a daily record of their whereabouts outside of school hours... more

Reimagining school during the pandemic is a global re-creation. Students disembarked the buses at Singapore American School, excited for their first full day of in-person school since March. In many ways it resembled the start of the 2019-20 school year. But it wasn't... more

Technology played a vital role in supporting the continuation of student learning in schools during covid-19, according to a new report by ISC Research, focused on understanding the use of technology during campus closures and its impact on international schools... more

Some schools that have been fortunate to reopen mid-pandemic have also been fortunate to have delivered a hybrid teaching and learning model. In this model, the teacher is responsible for the growth and nurturing of a classroom that is online and onsite at the same time. The initial trial and error stage is a lot of fun, it's also keeping us teachers on our toes. Let's put on the humour hat to take a stroll through the often awkward hybrid teaching and learning environment... more

Teachers in Sweden tend to enjoy a healthy work/life balance, preventing extensive teacher turnover due to overexhaustion. As an American, Jaime Ellenberger had a lot to learn about walking away at the end of the day... more

As our teachers continue to meet exacting professional and personal challenges, I, along with several other teachers and administrators, have been participating in an online Mindful Schools: Mindfulness Fundamentals course. Two readings from this course continue to resonate with me as I wonder how teachers can continue to sustain themselves in these uncertain times. Both explore the concept of self-compassion... more
