Promotion and development of educational competencies at Casvi International American School

Educational competencies worked on at Casvi International American School have the objective of improving the personal development of the student. In order to achieve this, they are offered the necessary tools so that their education is the best at the end of their schooling. In this way, they will be much better prepared to face the challenges of the future in an increasingly globalized and technological world.

LOMLOE and key competencies

According to the new education law, the LOMLOE, key competencies are “the performances that are considered essential for students to progress with guarantees of success in their educational itinerary, and to face the main global and local challenges”.

The LOMLOE has added a new term called “learning situations”. This term refers to the activities in which students have to put these key competencies into practice, i.e., those that bet on the development of skills in a progressive and transversal way across all subjects.

All these competencies are focused on enabling citizens to face the situations and challenges of the 21st century in the best possible way and also connect with the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda.

Key educational competencies

These are the key competencies reflected in the new education law LOMLOE:

1. In linguistic communication. This is the ability to express oneself through language in written and oral form, adapting to the register and context.
2. Multilingual. Students should be able to communicate in a foreign language. It is also important for them to learn about other cultures. All this will foster their international, intercultural and inclusive spirit. This is precisely the spirit of Casvi International American School. Our students live a linguistic and cultural immersion in English while living with students of different nationalities and cultures.
3. Mathematics and science, technology and engineering. This is the ability that students must have to perform mathematical operations and reasoning. Thus, they will be able to think critically about the data at their disposal.
4. Digital. It is essential that students know how to use new technologies and interpret the information they find in them. They must make use of critical thinking to identify sources and see the reliability of the content. In our center, we give talks on digital health to help our students to make good use of technology.

    6. Citizenship. Directly related to emotional intelligence. It contemplates empathy and self-knowledge of the person. It is important because it will give students greater confidence and security when working in teams.

We work on all of this at Casvi International American School through the International Baccalaureate.
    7. Entrepreneurial. Proactivity, creativity, perseverance, self-control… Skills that are related to all areas of life and to the attributes of the International Baccalaureate profile. Through this methodology, our students become inquirers, daring, reflective, supportive, open-minded, good communicators, thinkers, upright and balanced.
    8. In cultural awareness and expression. Culture is a fundamental factor in our society. For this reason, it is important that students learn to appreciate and understand it in order to better manage their daily lives.
