Across the world, education experts have realised that students need to do more than just memorise facts and regurgitate those facts in order to be successful in an increasingly competitive global economy. In order to take the educational experience to the next level, the leaders and instructors at OWIS have made 21st century competencies a top priority.

Who doesn’t like a good story?
Whether you're at home listening to your child telling you an interesting story or at school listening to your teacher’s storytelling or reading a plot twist, stories have the power to captivate, engage us and make us think.
One World International School recently had the opportunity to send five students to attend “An Evening with Michelle Obama” at Singapore Expo. Our students also got a chance to meet the former First Lady of the United States of America, Mrs Michelle Obama, personally at a VIP gathering before the event, where they were able to ask her questions.

At One World International School, learning comes alive for students as they discover their passions and interests through different avenues of learning, for example, taking on a role similar to junior scientists, formulating and testing hypotheses. Through the Inquiry Cycle, they explore new knowledge and ideas in authentic contexts; developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills to help them become successful for a future unknown.
At One World International School, we believe that students and teachers alike should be respectful of each other and the world that we live in. In some schools, discipline, etiquette and decorum have waned. In our institution, we believe that these are an absolutely essential part of education and something that our teachers nurture in students, as we prepare them to face the wider world.

Digitisation isn’t a new term, but it is undoubtedly a highly relevant one today, which is having a huge impact. Driven by the capabilities of new, advanced technologies and the evolving expectations of society, the world-at-large is changing, and all aspects of life are being disrupted. Especially the workplace and, subsequently, the demands from education.
The education system certainly wasn’t the first sector to adapt to the digital revolution, but it is now making amends for its slow uptake by capitalising on the new, enhanced possibilities that tech disruption provides.

Our lucky students also got a chance to meet former First Lady, Mrs Obama, personally at a VIP gathering before the event where they were able to ask her questions. This is something that Luna Deller, Senior Coordinator at OWIS, who accompanied the students, will never forget.
Education: In the Beginning
Not so many years ago, education was a fairly simple thing. Government schools everywhere muddled along, continually constrained by local politics and economics. And private schools usually relied more on their name and status than their academic record.
Rote learning, memorisation and the so-called three R’s (Reading, writing and Arithmetic) were the main focus of schooling. Academic success almost meant that you were qualified or had the skills to take on a clerical role in an organisation or government entity.
