Shift Happens

If you haven't seen this video yet, it's worth the 8 minutes. Tokyo International School (TIS) shared this with the parents at the start of a presentation about the curriculum they are using at the school. One thing they said that stuck with me was, "We are teaching your children and preparing them for jobs that don't exist yet." We are very impressed by the program at TIS. They are using the IB PYP - International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. If you really want to know more about it, you'll just have to go to their website. I ain't got time. We are so fortunate to be able to give them this opportunity. Now, grab your coffee and watch. If you are like me you might want or need to watch it more than once. There's a lot of information.
