Continuity of Learning

Our approach to remote education begins with the assertion that the learning experiences teachers normally design when school is in regular session cannot simply be replicated at a distance.

Please visit our Coronavirus Information page for detailed information about current school plans and health & safety measures in place at ISB.

Our Education Learning Models

ISB has developed three different learning models, depending on how the public health situation develops.

We believe that we are best prepared for new challenges if we remain flexible and adaptable – with the ability to move between the different learning models as the situation dictates – while allowing flexibility, transparency and prioritizing the health and safety of our community.

Please do note that the coronavirus situation is rapidly changing. ISB will continue to review and evolve our plans as we learn more.

Toggling Between Options

While the current public health situation suggests a possible return to unmodified face-to-face learning, trends from past pandemics suggest that it is wise to prepare for multiple future paths. The general consensus across the international school community is that we are more likely to toggle between the three options based on the public health situation. It is thus vital that ISB prepare for all three possible future scenarios (Low, Medium and High Risk).

We believe that we are best prepared for the new challenges if we remain flexible and adaptable, able to move between one model and another as the situation dictates. This approach also allows us to cope with any unexpected infections within our own community.

All three of the above options allow ISB to continue to offer students a high quality, child-centred learning experience, but in modified ways.
