INTRODUCTION TO EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION (ECE)
Curriculum is an indispensable instrument in any educational programme. It has often been contended that its fundamental nature derives from the fact that it is the very foundation for any education system. A longstanding curriculum debate in early childhood education centres on whether early childhood education should follow the traditional academic model of education used with older students (that is, large group, teacher-directed, formal instruction) or whether learning experiences for preschool children should be informal and consist
largely of child-initiated activities.

PHILOSOPHY OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
Education, as defined by American scholar and biblical thinker Noah Webster, “comprehends all
that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper,
form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations.” Webster’s
definition is itself a demonstration of the chief aim of Christian education—a biblical world view. The
Apostle Paul, in his treatise on the value and authenticity of Scripture, explains that “All Scripture is
inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for correction, for reproof, for training in righteousness, so that
the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” (II Timothy 3:16-17)
What is an IB education?
IB learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, openminded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success. This is the IB’s educational philosophy.
Getting to know your IB coordinator
If you are already at an IB World School, get to know your school’s programme coordinator. They are ready to answer questions about the general characteristics of IB programmes, the administration, and implementation at your school. They are the intermediary for communication with the International Baccalaureate and are there to support IB candidates. Find an IB World School to contact the coordinator.
Assessment and results
In the Diploma Programme (DP) and Middle-Years Programme (MYP), the International Baccalaureate conducts two examination sessions each year. We work to the core principles that all students receive a result that is fair, reliable and recognized. Our assessments give students the opportunity to demonstrate not just what they have learnt, but how they can apply this learning.
Results day for DP students
For the May exam session, results are issued to schools on 5 July. For the November session, results are issued to schools on 2 January 2021. Students will be able to access their results electronically via the candidate website on 6 July for the May session and 2 January 2021 from 12:00 GMT (noon) for the November session. To access the site, please contact your school’s IB programme coordinator.
Before results are released, students can request to have results sent to six universities. This service is free of charge.
All requests must be submitted by the programme coordinator of the school where the student is taking the DP. After results day, additional transcripts will incur a fee.
IB graduates are academically prepared for university coursework, and research shows that they perform exceptionally well when compared to their non-IB peers. Many universities publish their own policies explaining exactly how an IB student can apply.

I. What is Hybrid Learning?
Hybrid learning combines face-to-face and online teaching into one cohesive experience.
Approximately half of the class sessions are on-campus, while the other half have students
working online. Although that may sound like a cut-and-dry formula, a lot of planning is needed
to ensure that hybrid works well, allowing its two formats to capitalize on each other’s
Given the unique opportunities that hybrid can offer, approach planning carefully. Instructors
need to be familiar with not only the strengths of online and face-to-face teaching in their
rights but also how they can feed into each other over the longer-term.
But before we take a more in-depth look at how to plan a hybrid course, let’s make sure we’re
clear on terms. For example, many people might use the words “hybrid” and “blended”
interchangeably, but in fact, they mean different things. That difference is based primarily on
the proportion of face-to-face and online sessions or instructional material in a given course.
Whereas hybrid refers to teaching that is roughly balanced between its two formats (think
50/50), blended refers to a mostly traditional face-to-face course that incorporates a few class
