The 5 Essential elements of learing at TIS are: Knowledge, Skills, Concept, Attitudes and Action
•Knowledge – which is both disciplinary and trans-disciplinary is represented by traditional subject areas – language, mathematics, science, social studies, arts and sports.
•Skills – which are the broad capabilities students develop and apply during learning and in life beyond the classroom.
•Concepts – which students explore through structured inquiry in order to develop coherent, in-depth understanding, and which have relevance both within and beyond subject areas.
•Attitudes – which contribute to international-mindedness and the wellbeing of individuals learning communities, and connect directly to the IB learner profile.
•Action – which is an expectation that a successful inquiry leads to responsible, thoughtful and appropriate action.
• Visible thinking routines are practiced at Technocrats to promote and enhance student’s learning. These routines enrich the classroom environment and foster student’s intellectual development. It helps students to reflect on their thinking about a topic or issue and explore how and why that thinking has changed.
• Classroom routines for developing language, mathematical concepts and a sense of belongingness, ensure that you get through things that need to be done daily or weekly. With these routines in place the students are aware what is expected from them.
• Learning by doing – Students is given various opportunities to explore, investigate and find out answers to their queries. Virtual and in-house field trips give prospects to their learning.
• Parent involvement in their children’s learning, not only improves a child’s morale, attitude, and academic achievement across all subject areas but it also promotes better behaviour and social adjustment. At Technocrats, parents are involved openly in all major activities.
• Reflection is an integral part at TIS: Teachers reflect on his/her teaching style and strategies while students reflect on what, why and how the learning has changed their views.
Assessment is an essential part of the teaching and learning process. It provides information about student learning and development, as well as a framework for planning, self-reflection, and collaboration. Formative and Summative assessments are done for each unit followed by Student led conferences, this helps teachers in understanding students’ strengths and challenges.
