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 Carolina Gianetto about transdisciplinary learning. Carolina has been a PYP educator since 2000 as a starting homeroom teacher in Brazil. Since then she has worked in international PYP schools in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Moscow, Russia where she has been a teacher, PYP coordinator, Assistant Principal and is now the Head of EYs and Primary at St. Francis College in Sao Paulo. Carolina has been a PYP workshop leader and site visitor for over 10 years as she worked in IB Americas and in Europe and the Middle East.
