A Wonderful Assembly Embodied in IB Spirit

“Have I made the right decision to send my kid to AIC?” Some parents might question themselves once in a while. But what happened today at the assembly would free the parents from such concerns. Taking a close look at how different the learning approaches are at AIC and how the learning philosophy of “learning by doing” is put into practice, you would wish you had been there at the assembly this week to witness how students made their voice heard and the small steps they took to make our world a better place.
Many children are obsessed with their smart phones. They are suffering from Nomo-phobia, which is short for No-Mobile-phone-Phobia, and refers to the anxiety and pressure people experience when they don’t have their phone handy. This has long been the concern of parents and teachers.
It was addressed at the assembly on Monday. Jamie and Silvia’s mentor groups collaborated to lead all the AIC community members to confront with this modern campaign. They thought it was high time for us all to be aware of how mobile phone has inadvertently changed our behavior and affected our daily life.
While the public zest for the latest 苹果 6 is running high, and students may take a handy smart phone for granted, how little do we know the price we pay for the high-tech gadget? An in-depth video covering the phone-assembling and manufacturing was shown on the screen, unveiling the sad hidden facts that thousands of line workers suffered from Benzene poisoning and each year hundreds of them would end up with losing their life at their prime time. “How unfair and pitiful this is!” Students all began to ponder over with heartfelt sorrow. The price human beings have to pay for this fancy and trendy toy is not money. It is human health and their valuable life! Moments of silence. Time for reflection. And this is exactly in line with the IB philosophy: students are required to be reflective and to think a step further. Having known the miserable glory behind the phone, students might have a second thought before leaping for endless new phones.
After all the cost human beings have paid for manufacturing smart phones, one might wonder how the use of smart phones has changed our behavior over the decade and what role it plays in our daily life. The answer was explored by students showing an impressive and innovative self-starred and self-directed video. With Saxophone dining music on, audience were brought to the scene in a 2004 restaurant of New York, where groups of friends were having a getting-together meal. Along with the food serving to the table were warm greetings, firm handshakes and hugs, chatting and laughing. The warm and lively meal time was soon contrasted with the quiet yet awkward scene in the same restaurant in 2014, where friends gathered together. They were busy staring at their phone screens, chatting online or playing games, taking photos, totally indifferent to their friends in front. It’s a scene far too familiar in our daily life, well captured in the video in a funny and amusing way. A common feeling was shared by all present at the end of the video show: losing ourselves in the phone is actually taking away our real life experience. And the objective of the assembly was achieved: to call for people to battle with NOMO-phobia, to take your heart with you wherever you go and leave your phone behind.
At the end of the assembly, each mentor group was given a poster to promote the campaign. IB education advocates learning by doing and learning by sharing. The assembly has convinced more students to commit themselves to taking actions to change: be more caring, be more balanced, and be the change you want to see. This is how the IB spirit is fully embodied at AIC.
