The role of technology in the PYP

This post will outline the aims of the PYP (the Primary Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate) and the role that technology plays in helping teachers and students to achieve those goals. The role of technology is not significantly different to non-IB schools, so the ideas of good practice outlined below will also apply to other educational settings.

What is the philosophy of the PYP?

 The overall aim of all IB programmes (PYP, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme) is to develop international mindedness in our students. This is achieved through the development of the Learner Profile, which is made up of ten attributes (see below image). Specifically in the PYP, these attributes are developed through the programme’s Five Essential Elements: knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action. At the core of all IB programmes is inquiry as the leading pedagogical approach. This is just a very brief overview of the PYP. For more information, please refer to the IB website.
