The MYP projects are an opportunity for students to engage in self-directed learning, exploring areas of interest through a cycle of inquiry, action and reflection. Through these explorations, students also demonstrate and strengthen their ATL skills. At this Toddle Talk, you’d get to understand your role as a project supervisor better. Take away actionable insights, and inquire into tools for fostering deep learning with projects. 

Session: Personal project with Patrick Ong
