Sinarmas World Academy

Hello there everyone!

Here is a slideshow that I made of photos that I took of Sinarmas World Academy. Wow! Words can't describe it. It is like being in a resort not a school. I feel so lucky to be able to be a part of this amazing 21st Century learning space. I will coordinate the use of technology in the school and also teach the Grade 5 class. That's great because the laptop program begins in Grade 5 and I have always wanted to be able to use laptops as a learning tool. Grade 5 is the last year level in PYP so we will do the Exhibition as well!

My partner teacher is Hugo and he is so talented. He was the Vice-Principal of Sekolah Tunas Muda! He has so many ideas and is already planning for the UOIs.

Just look at the beautiful buildings! People are asking me to show a photo of the computer lab ... Well it's very, very, very BIG! If you watch the slideshow you will see it. Do you understand? The whole school is a 'computer lab'. Get it? The whole campus is Wifi so I can teach computers anywhere on the grounds - even in the garden. You see every student from Grade 5 - 12 has a Macbook and every teacher has a Macbook. The younger grades share a set of Macbooks of one set between four classes. That means that they can use them everyday.

I think that my favorite corner will be the Koi pond, or the Topeng Cafe or the Lotus Lounge ... Hmmmmm

Very nice work, Mrs. Jane. Your programs, your students, and the educational spaces are all very impressive and inspiring. My blog has dozens of videos like this one ( that depict students in Philadelphia, USA, very much like yours who are also doing projects.
