Bavarian International School (BIS) presents the school of the future and Distance Learning

Bavarian International School (BIS) is a partner of the new online format "EXPAT TALK". Organised by the "Expat in the City Munich" platform, interested participants will experience digital expert talks on the 5th of December 2020 (10 am - 6 pm). The English-language service is designed for expats already living in Munich or planning to move here, as well as for German families. BIS  will focus on the school of the future and Distance Learning in times of the corona pandemic. Free registrations for the online event under the slogan "Servus Munich!" are already possible: www.expatinthecity.de/expattalks-munich. 

For the Bavarian International School (1,150 students from 61 nations at two campuses in Munich-Schwabing and Haimhausen), three speakers will provide authentic, personal insights into the world of international schools and innovative learning in the age of COVID-19: 17-year-old student Zara Ilijas (grade 12, Croatia), BIS parent Miyako Yanaihara (Japan) and BIS Head of School  Dr. Chrissie Sorenson (USA/Deutschland).

Why must a school be more than just a school? 

The corona pandemic magnifies how much schools must adapt to the dramatic changes. How should a school be prepared, equipped and organised to meet the new challenges and to be able to offer a high quality of education without too much disruption? Why does a school of the future include the building blocks of personalised education, innovative learning, holistic development and an international mindset? How can children and young people become responsible world citizens and future game changers? Why must a school be more than just a school? The BIS Trio will provide the answers in the form of a talk and an open question and answer session on Saturday, 5th of December 2020 from 4 to 5 p.m.

During the new online event run by "Expat in the City Munich", which is a support network for expats and international families in Munich and around the world, other partners will present their practical advice and expertise from visa to insurance, from expat service and finance to corona measures: City of Munich, Invest in Bavaria, Techniker Krankenkasse (TK), Horbach for Expats and Ulrike Homuth. Irish comedian Mel Kelly ("The Green Pill") will also show how to go from being a "Green Zero" to becoming a "Green Hero".
