Eton International School recently launched their latest theme-based international curriculum called ‘International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), through symposium entitled “Making Connections, Making Meaning,” making it a part of the growing international academic community adopting IMYC worldwide.
According to Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino, Eton International School President, “IMYC supports a more progressive view of education that recognizes learning takes place outside the classroom and that the role of schools is to prepare students for meeting the open-ended problems they will face throughout their lives.”
Ms. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino and Ms. Isabel Du Toit with the students
Developed by Fieldwork Education, the organization behind the increasingly popular International Primary Curriculum (IPC), the IMYC is a curriculum that focuses mainly on student learning. Specifically, it responds to the needs of 11 to 14 year-olds by encouraging independence and interpendence in their learning through discrete subjects and themes, providing learning that helps them make connections that are relevant to their own lives.
It draws on current media techniques, involves active skills-based learning, and promotes self-reflection and the chance for students to make sense of their learning. This is achieved by directing the learning through a theme or ‘Big Idea’. Each Big Idea provides an average of six-week learning unit for every year group from 11 to 14. From this Big Idea comes a complex conceptual theme that is challenging but within the grasp of young teenagers; themes such as Adaptability, Discovery, Balance and Creativity.
IMYC Regional Manager Isabel Du Toit
IMYC Regional Manager Isabel Du Toit shared that IMYC shows real understanding of the unique philosophy and approach to learning that students at this developmental level require. The IMYC attempts to put theory into practice and openly addresses the challenges that schools face when trying to bridge this gap.
As Eton launches IMYC in June, Tolentino is hopeful that this new curriculum would gain wide acceptance among parents in the Philippines.
Eton is an academic institution engaged in K-12 education. It is a part of global network of more than 100 schools using the “Dunn and Dunn Learning Styles.” Branded as the “school of the future,” Eton provides school where learning is more continuous, more relevant, and more adaptive. Its mission is to make International Education accessible to all.
Last year, Eton became the first 3D school in the Philippines. IPC and IMYC complement with the school’s existing 3D instruction in Science and math subjects, as well as its e-learning partnership program in Singapore.
