Developing skills in our students
From the desk of Maria del Pilar Mones Urtuzuástegui | MS Academic Coordination
On May 2nd, some of our students were invited to the first FAAME contest, an event that promotes coexistence between schools in an academic and cultural environment, offering a space to show their talents and skills. Our students participated in three categories: oratory, scientific challenge and photography. By participating in this type of event, students can show and put into practice all the skills they have worked on and developed through the learning approaches acquired during their time in the PYP and MYP.
In the scientific challenge they built a catapult, for which they had to follow written instructions to the letter to carry out the experiment and make it functional, they had to read to understand the instructions provided to them and thus execute their challenge, using information management and communication skills. In terms of social skills, they worked in a team of three members, negotiating to delegate and share responsibilities when making decisions, identifying obstacles and challenges, each one assuming their role within the group, defending their ideas and points of view. Self-management skills were present, using absolute awareness, attention and concentration, and organizing the time given to them, to successfully conclude the activity.
In photography, the competition consisted of capturing 3 images with different themes: perspective, with model and free. The students participated in triads demonstrating several of the learning approaches such as communication skills, when offering and receiving comments from the same team; social, by achieving consensus, listening to the opinions of the group, negotiating with self-management effectiveness working organizational skills, through the effective use of time, planning tasks, meeting deadlines and, finally, they developed creative thinking through the knowledge acquired to generate ideas and innovative options, evidenced by their photographs.
Finally, 3 of our students participated in oratory where the theme to develop was “Being young today”, in this category they had the opportunity to convince the public through their speech giving their opinion and supporting it with different arguments, developing their communication skills, transmitting their way of thinking through the organization and writing of their oratory in a logical and coherent way, putting into practice their critical thinking by structuring information to formulate their arguments.
Our students Ximena Fontecilla España and Fernanda Zapata Cruz won 1st and 2nd place, respectively, in this category.
These competitions allow students to acquire, practice, develop and perfect the skills of the learning approaches, which help them “learn to learn”, as well as constitute excellent tools to explore meaningful content favoring their participation, deep understanding, skills transference and academic success.
“The main purpose of approaches to learning in MYP is to help learners develop the self-awareness and skills needed to adopt a lifelong learning attitude” (ibo.org. 2014).
