CURRICULAR MODEL DP

Students study six different subjects, in addition to a central component that consists of three mandatory elements that are: the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS). During the program students focus on the acquisition of their cognitive skills and abilities, as well as the management of their emotional dispositions, always encouraging them to be compassionate, caring and to demonstrate an active attitude towards learning throughout their lives.

“Research suggests that there are many benefits to choosing the DP. The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.” (ibo.org)


MODELO CURRICULAR PAI

El PAI fue concebido como un marco curricular coherente y completo dirigido a alumnos de entre 11 y 16 años de edad, que plantea un desafío académico y contribuye al desarrollo de habilidades sociales, de autogestión, investigación, comunicación y pensamiento crítico.

En este marco se hace hincapié el desarrollo de las habilidades y actitudes, la comprensión de conceptos y la adquisición de los conocimientos necesarios para participar en una sociedad cada vez más globalizada. El éxito escolar está estrechamente relacionado con el bienestar personal, social y emocional; el PAI, les permite desarrollar sus capacidades y enfrentar desafíos dentro y fuera del aula en un mundo actual dando lugar a perspectivas más amplias acerca de cuestiones complejas y fomentando niveles más profundos de análisis y síntesis.

El marco curricular contiene un amplio grado de diversidad, ofreciendo a los alumnos la oportunidad de desarrollar su potencial, explorar sus propias preferencias de aprendizaje, afrontar riesgos adecuados y desarrollar una sólida noción de identidad personal y reflexionar sobre ella. El programa está proyectado para ser inclusivo; el PAI facilita el desarrollo de todos los alumnos, fomentando su desarrollo como individuos independientes que adoptan una actitud de aprendizaje durante toda la vida, culminando esta etapa con la presentación de un Proyecto Personal como un desafío individual y creativo el cual hace evidente el desarrollo de las habilidades adquiridas, así como la consolidación del aprendizaje durante el programa.


MODELO CURRICULAR PEP

El Programa de la Escuela Primaria (PEP) del IB está dirigido a niños de 3 – 12 años de edad, se imparte desde preescolar y concluye en 6to de primaria. Su característica principal es la indagación a través de un marco conceptual y transdisciplinario, basado en las habilidades de los enfoques de aprendizaje integrados en experiencias educativas auténticas y dinámicas, que favorecen la agencia de los alumnos de manera cognitiva y metacognitiva, ayudándoles a pensar de forma crítica y creativa.

Al combinar las habilidades, los atributos del perfil de la comunidad del IB y los conocimientos de las seis áreas disciplinares, los alumnos del PEP se convierten en alumnos autorregulados, agentes de su propio aprendizaje, capaces de saber cómo establecer objetivos de aprendizaje, formular preguntas abiertas, generar motivación y perseverancia, reflexionar sobre sus logros, autoevaluar su aprendizaje, investigar, comunicarse, socializar y gestionarse a sí mismos de manera eficaz desde contextos locales, nacionales a globales.
