As a part Nord Anglia Education family of schools, BISC students have instant access to a global network that unites them with over 18,500 students from over 100 countries around the world.
Meet the Global Classroom.
The Global Classroom connects students all over the world with a unique blend of educational and cultural programs, allowing them to experience diverse perspectives, new and challenging concepts and a variety of topical subjects. To generate continual activity throughout the year, the Global Classroom is accessed multiple ways through:
Online learning environment
Where students are inspired, challenged and gain in confidence by learning with experts, debating with others and making connections across the world.
Where students work independently or collaborate in teams to take on challenges and competitions, creating innovative solutions to current world problems.
Where students are brought together to unite efforts on community service projects, developing leadership skills and furthering a sense of global citizenship. (Most recently, in Tanzania.)
Global Classroom participants are encouraged to ask questions, expand their horizons, lead their peers, and begin to shape their own future. With this type of unique forum, we believe the Global Classroom encourages students to:
- Develop values, attributes and critical thinking skills they need to succeed in learning and in life
- Develop independent learning skills
- Develop into global citizens; respectful of alternative perspectives and different contexts
- Aim high in their next step and transition to higher education/careers
The next Global Classroom challenge, called Make It Right, will be underway shortly with all of our BISC students participating. Check back for an update on this challenge next week. In the meantime, here is a short video clip that expresses the sentiment and enlightens upon the core themes of the Global Classroom.
