    Just been following along.
    I'm an IB trained teacher. There are several schools in QLD..public schools that have adopted the IB program too.

    I was trained at my last school and it was going through accreditation for it.

    Honestly, the pedagogy isn't too dissimilar to any enquiry based learning and most schools teach in a way that does this these days, as it's been the current trend in education. Doesn't have to be an IB school to be teaching enquiry based.

    I really like the idea of enquiry based learning and I'm glad it's now being integrated into government schools. This is an extract from a school near us which we are considering for our son next year (currently deciding which catchment to move into)

    "Problem-solvers work together and collaborate; they are creative, are able to to critically think and communicate – the 4Cs. It is our task to develop these fluencies and with this comes pedagogical shift to learner-centred learning. This pedagogical shift can only find its true potential when the classroom environment is in alignment with the pedagogy hence, the collision of pedagogy and learning space to better reflect the modern era"
