GLOBAL TRAVEL PROGRAMS
FOR IB SCHOOLS
taking the ib abroad
Students take the their understanding of the six subject groups, CAS concepts, and the nature of knowledge and learning into challenging cross-cultural scenarios.
Students who participate in Envoys programs convert the learning that they do at school into meaningful action abroad. They define and redefine their values throughout the program, learning to connect those values to possibilities for action in their communities back home.
School faculty and Envoys staff work hand in hand to design every aspect of the program, aligning each activity with a desired learning outcome. Experiential education provides students with opportunities for metacognition that ground their previous understanding of TOK in direct experience.
PRE-DEPARTURE ONLINE COURSEWORK
Envoys provides schools with meaningful pre-departure coursework based on understanding CAS concepts and the IB framework. Research shows that learning outcomes on educational programs such as ours are bolstered by intentional coursework before the students leave their home country.
EXTENDING CREATIVITY, ACTION AND SERVICE
On Envoys programs, Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) come alive through unforgettable experiential education. We believe that students learn best by engaging in direct and frequent exchanges with local people that build intercultural understanding and empathy.
Theory of Knowledge
Structured, daily reflection develops students’ understanding of TOK throughout the program, identifying areas for growth and improvement. As the program finalizes, trip leaders lead guided reflections that help students create plans for action once they get back to school.
Envoys is a team of educators. We design custom programs directly in collaboration with schools to maximize learning for students. The following program is an example of how we have worked with IB schools in the past to design a service learning experience around CAS concepts.
We believe that students learn best by engaging in direct and frequent exchanges with local people that build intercultural understanding and empathy. Envoys partners with carefully selected experts in our destination countries to ensure the highest-quality education experience on all programs.
