Hey everyone! I just want to take the time out to thank those who have tuned in on Periscope to the series that I have had on being an International Educator and how to do it. If you missed it I will put a link at the end of this post for my Katch Replay site. 🙂
Here’s Part 2 on “How to become an International Educator”
Please note the information that will be given is for those that hold a certification in education and currently are teaching.
There are several types of International Schools below is the information about the types that are out there.
American schools follow a similar curriculum to that of schools in The States.
For American International School, charging tuition is how the schools receive their financing overseas. Of course these school have benefactors that help monetarily by giving gifts and contributions from businesses, foundations, individuals, and local governments.
American international schools’ curriculum that help to prepare students to enter schools, colleges, and universities in the United States.
There are several British International Schools. Even though these schools follow British curriculum, just like American school, they may be privately owned. If they have government monitoring them they are associated with with COBIS.
COBIS (Council of British International Schools), is a membership association of British schools of quality and is a member of the Independent Schools Council (ISC) of the United Kingdom.
The IB is an international university-entrance exam, which is recognized by universities in over 143 countries worldwide. The IB program is also offered in schools that do not consider themselves international, in both the private and public sectors. Schools that offer the curriculum seek to provide a rigorous academic program to its students.
The IB also offers two programs for younger students: The “Primary Years Program” (PYP) is geared towards children between 3 and 12, and the “Middle Years Program” (MYP) is aimed at students between 11 and 16 years of age.
Ok, so I know that was a LOT of information. So take some time and let it all soak in.
FYI…If you’re not on Periscope download it! Why?! Every Thursday I go and discuss International Education. For the month of November I did a PD on “How to become an International Educator”. You can at watch the replays by clicking the banner below.
