16 September 2020
Principal Kimberly Kingry heads into work at the Yogyakarta Independent School, an IB World School in Central Java, to launch the 2020 "Year of Recovery."
By Danau Tanu

In the course of pursuing her graduate studies, Danau Tanu went back to high school for a year. What came out of that intense period of observation was the first book on how structural racism operates in international schools. This article is the first in a series devoted to this topic... more

By Lorelei Loveridge

Five days after Saudi Arabia's King Salman declared a 21-day curfew that effectively turned into a compound lockdown, Lorelei Loveridge received the call every expat dreads. He was gone. She couldn't get home to be with family. And still the show had to go on.. more

By George Pickford

The successful project for student-athletes at International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools, supporting their dual career aspirations, has been approved to now applies to both IB Diploma Programme (DP) and IB Career-related Programme (CP) students... more
THE LEARNING ACTIVATOR

By Josefino Rivera, Jr.

In literature, we find comfort in narratives that follow what Joseph Campbell called the "hero's journey," the trajectory of a character who crosses into an unknown world only to return from the experience completely changed. But what about those that don't return?... more

By Anne Keeling, ISC Research

A new report published by ISC Research and Next Frontier Inclusion describes inclusion practices and trends within the world's international schools market. A total of 207 international schools from 69 countries were surveyed; students with learning needs are present in most... more

By Kimberly Kingry

The start of this new academic year meant opening our doors exclusively to faculty and staff. There is obvious disappointment in the lack of face-to-face engagement with our community. Still, we're determined to make this our Year of Recovery... more


By Robbie Jefferiss

Here in Singapore, we do an exercise with our Grade 11 students, asking them to visualize their future lives at age 30. COVID-19 rendered the exercise more fraught than usual. Flexibility of thinking may be one of the greatest strengths we can impart to our students at this time... more
By Shwetangna Chakrabarty

The world is suffering from aboutitis, a disease that plagues education. A learner having come down with a case of aboutitis knows a lot about the subject at hand... knows a lot about everything, actually. The situation is grave, for knowledge is virtually useless when divorced from understanding. So how to foster understanding, or the ability to critically think about information and apply it, when we are bombarded with the stuff?... more
We accept articles on a rolling basis that cover school news, curriculum, pedagogy, leadership, governance & policy, antiracism, wellness, learning technologies, women in leadership, lifestyle, future of learning, service projects, inclusion, counseling & advisory, professional learning, & every aspect of international education... editor@tieonline.com
By Dan Kerr

If you think about all of the webinars attended, articles read, Zoom conversations had, and new professional learning attained over the past six months, you'll come to understand that it is all rooted in one thing: a deep love of teaching, which comes with it an unquenchable desire to inspire and engage young people. Educators around the world aren't doing all of this extra work because school districts, boards, and administrators are telling them to. No, they are doing it because they love to teach, and they want to do it well... more

By Kim Marshall

"Shifting to online teaching can feel overwhelming," says Pennsylvania teacher/ learning design coach Adam Lavallee in this Global Online Academy article. He suggests six ways of changing teaching to make the best use of the remote environment... more

By Ellen Min Hartman

For students, belonging matters. Meaningful learning occurs when students show up as their whole selves and feel they are valued in their learning space.
Given that so many schools are now working in online or hybrid formats, how can we nurture a strong sense of belonging in online spaces?... more
By Stephen Dexter, Jr.

When I saw Ken Robinson's cleverly animated video about how schools kill creativity in 2007, I knew that my teaching career would never be the same. When Covid hit in 2020, I knew that my administrative career would be changed forever, not only because I had to re-design the logistics of learning, but because the stuff we put into place and the impact it had on culture would not be reversible for a long time... more
By Matthew Piercy

Feedback. Something teachers provide in abundance but may not necessarily receive enough of. Yet, how ubiquitous is feedback! So much so, we may not even realize how we swim, quite possibly even drown, in feedback loops. From the things we purchase, movies we watch, places we travel, food we eat--it is all being reviewed! But what about teaching and learning? How embedded is the practice of giving and receiving feedback? Infrequent enough for many to consider teaching to be the second most private act... more
