Academics for the Lifelong Learner

Academics for the Lifelong Learner

Beta Cambridge School believes in Inquiry-based academics that focus on disciplinary rigor along with critical interdisciplinary competencies by delivering personalized education across all subjects with an emphasis on Numeracy and Literacy.

Inquiry-based instruction expands the students’ and teachers’ role “beyond respectively receiving and conveying knowledge” and enables the students “to actively produce knowledge” ( Chichekian & Shore, 2014). The constructivist approach, that the BCS broadly adopts, suggests that students construct their own knowledge.

We go about this by using a meticulously devised set of skills identified as ‘Approaches To Learning’.

What are the approaches to learning (ATL)?

  • ATL are deliberate strategies, skills and attitudes that permeate the teaching and learning environment.
  • ATL supports the belief that a large influence on a student’s education is not only what they learn but also how they learn.
  • ATL are intrinsically linked with the IB learner profile attributes to enhance student learning and assist student preparation for life after high school.
