Open-mindedness as a part of IB learning


Possessing an open mind is a significant part of IB learning. IB students are open-minded since they understand and appreciate cultures and personal histories, and are open to the perspectives, values and traditions of other individuals and communities. Accustomed to seeking and evaluating a range of points of view, IB learners develop and grow from this experience. We want students to learn and understand from their own experiences, and to help put knowledge into perspective as they get older.

This begins with the IB Primary Years Programme. For example, in Ten Tales from Different Cultures, we offer young learners an introduction to the diversity of cultural traditions around the world. The beautifully illustrated set of books is aimed at 5–9-year-olds and draw on folktales and legends from diverse cultures around the world, including Korean, Malaysian, Australian, Turkish, Swedish and five others.

For a good foundation in open-minded learning, please view our other titles on the Primary Years Programme pages.

IB learners have a deep understanding of various cultures and views. Let’s provide our young learners with a start that helps them be the best they can be.
