b. Planning at the school makes use of the PYP planner  and planning  process across the curriculum and by all teachers.
c. Planning at the school addresses all the essential elements to strengthen the transdisciplinary nature of the programme.

4. Collaborative planning and reflection ensures that all teachers have an overview of students’ learning experiences.
a. The school provides for easy access to completed Primary Years Programme planners.
b. The school ensures that Primary Years Programme planners are coherent records of student learning.

Programme standards and practices January 2014

Collaborative planning and Written Curriculum put huge strain on managing planners, scope and sequences, and documentation. All schools need a comprehensive solution to deal with the constant moderation and change that is prevalent to a living programme of inquiry.

In this session we will share how KIS International School in Bangkok, Thailand is using ManageBac to make sure that we are providing a structured, virtual learning environment for all our community members where the planning process, the assessment, and the daily communication are all connected.
