High Quality Learning & Teaching
At SISU School Ulaanbaatar, we believe that High Quality Learning & Teaching is a collective journey of discovery. A journey that creates agency, respects cultures, the rights and wellbeing of children and leads to active citizens who equitably engage with their local and global communities. Individual growth and social emotional intelligence are paramount to HTA’s process of learning and teaching as children plan and set goals, develop a growth mindset, inquire, think critically and creatively, reflect, and engage in meta-cognition and innovation.
Global Citizenship relies on understanding identity through common humanity rather than through geography, politics, or culture. This means a true global citizen must value empathy and possess genuine desire to understand multiple sides through self-awareness of one’s own conditionings and natural biases. In an academic setting this means regardless of the subject (be it literature, biology, or Kazakh language) applying content and skills learned to contemporary international issues is a pathway in this direction.
Intercultural Learning enables us to know how we create meaning. Intercultural learning occurs when our learning enables us to understand issues and material outside of their own culturally conditioned biases. When intercultural learning occurs, we understand issues from multiple points of view and with awareness of our cultural setting, learn how culture, biases, and values affect our perception. We must possess a basic self-awareness of our own cultural, ideological, political, moral background and positions of power and privilege.
Digital Citizenship is the responsible use of technology to promote academic inquiry, find information that is both reputable and useful, and communicate both professionally and productively. Digital Citizenship mandates that learners develop methods for evaluating legitimacy in sources, the prevalence of bias, and optimization of where to search for information. Another key factor of true digital citizenship is empathy in social connection where learners can see beyond the void of cyberspace and perceive others' humanity in all digital interactions, guiding empathetic and compassionate behavior.
