Tes and the IB launch content-sharing hub for educators
International Baccalaureate (IB) and non-IB educators can now collaborate, share best practices and learn from peers from around the world thanks to a new free content-sharing hub, launched today by the IB and leading education resource provider Tes.
Through the IB Diploma Programme group within the Tes platform, educators can upload teacher-created classroom resources and easily search for IB Diploma Programme (DP) material. The content-sharing hub is currently available for DP educators.
Teachers who value an international focus to education will have access to a suite of classroom resources to improve their approaches to teaching and learning. Dr Siva Kumari, Director General of the IB is very excited about the new platform: “The IB is a digital-first organization that is constantly nurturing partnerships both within and beyond our community.”
Dr Kumari continued: “We believe that excellent teaching and learning should be available to as many schools, teachers and students as possible, regardless of where they teach and learn, or what their socio-economic background may be. As such, this launch is exciting and significant, because it combines our digital strength with partnership and, most important, it does so in a way that is designed to benefit teachers all over the world, no matter whether they teach at IB World Schools or elsewhere. This will be to the great benefit of their own teaching, and to their students’ learning.”
Lord Jim Knight, Chief Education and External Officer at Tes, said: "Tes is delighted to be partnering with the IB to host a new content-sharing hub on our resources platform that truly reflects their curriculum. We’re committed to connecting teachers from all over the world giving them access to high quality teaching materials.”
The launch is a significant milestone for the IB as it celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
