In Oct 2018 the International Baccalaureate will release the long-awaited Primary Years Programme (PYP) Principles into Practice. Elements of this new curriculum framework have slowly been released over the last year and it has ignited a buzz of critical conversations across the PYP community. In anticipation of the release of these Enhancements, Angeline Aow has interviewed a number of leading PYP educators from around the world about their thoughts, hopes, expectations and developing understanding of the upcoming enhancements.
In this episode, Angeline interviews Christopher Frost about leadership in the Enhanced PYP from school leaders, to teachers to students. Christopher is currently the Primary School Principal at Tokyo International School, and he is a school leader originally from the UK with a wide range of international school experience. In addition to his role as principal, he is also an independent educational consultant, a workshop leader for the PYP, an IB consultant and visiting team leader. Christopher has considerable experience as a curriculum coordinator, and has written units for the International Primary Curriculum. Christopher’s blog is widely read by PYP educators, and you can also follow him on Twitter to find out more about his thoughts and work.
