Approaches to Learning (ATLs)
Through ATL in IB programmes, students develop skills that have relevance across the curriculum that help them “learn how to learn.” ATL skills can be learned and taught, improved with practice and developed incrementally. They provide a solid foundation for learning independently and with others. ATL skills help students prepare for, and demonstrate learning through, meaningful assessment. They provide a common language that students and teachers can use to reflect on, and articulate on, the process of learning.
